    hi everyone , this is my first post on this site,
    I've been into watches along time.. But it never crosst my mind to post here x)
    I live in Sweden and we have one site there that I read every day, so I'm a bit lazy to search for more on point targets as in this case omega !
    I have a lot of vintage omega but just this one I'm not so sure about the price picture ?
    So I'll be super glad and humble if you can help me
    Thanks !

    What is the case diameter of your Omega? Do you have a photo of the movement in its case?

    Love gold-cased watches, even if it's said that they are not popular these days. I've never been in style yet.

    I can't tell you anything about the price, but I can tell you that for me it's a very appealing watch.

    No doubt about it , it's a nice watch , quite rare I think? With pink gold ..
    I've searched everywhere it fells like and only found one that's quite the same at chrono24
    It was listed at 1400€ but the dial was really bad ..

    It's not rare but a nice one. The bigger ones are rarer and more expensive. I Would say about 1200 dollars as it's not automatic. The crown is not original.

    How can you see that ?
    The old man that sold it to me said that the watch had never been toucht , (he had bought it new)
    And to me It looks like it's the original crown, color so on..

    Crown is most probably a newer one. I am not 100% sure, but in those days it was not uncommon to replace some smaller parts during a service.
    The omega-logo (plus shape of the actual crown) has changed over the years. Sometimes subtle, sometimes less subtle.
    My original 1952-3 crown as reference. Look for differences.

    Old guys might have nice stories, but at the same time make something up...

    Might well be, but 'same' does not always mean 'original'

    BTW: your 1st and 2nd pic have different Omega logo's and therefore different crowns: look at the feet: in the 1st the feet go up (think that is called 'happy feet' generally) and in the 2nd they do not. 3rd pic is to blurry to tell.

    Wear your nice watch in good health!

    The crown on Wilhelm's example would most certainly have been incorrect for this model, and the original watch posted may well have an original crown. In other words, the basic design of the crown is correct for that model. The apparent wear shown on the crown also appears to be consistent with the rest of the watch.

    The only question, to my mind, would be the logo, and whether it is consistent with the time period.

    I'd say that there's a good chance that this particular old man's memory was operating well. ;)

    I might have been unclear: I did not mean the crown as such (duhhhh), but the logo on it.

    And there we go?
    The whole thing about this thread was for me to get a grip of the price.. This watch is rare in Sweden because they were sold mostly in the United States, that's why I reach out for some help.. It's not for sale in any way just want to
    know if I made a good deal!
