    I hope you are all safe :)
    Just found this 1952 Omega chronograph caliber 321 and would like to find the case that should fit this caliber. I guess it was a gold case but I won’t mind fitting into a steal case.
    I really appreciate your inputs
    Thanks
    David

    The movement dates approximately to the end of 1953 and the case reference is likely to have been 2466. The dial might have been redone in the past.

    The lack of a case makes me think that it was originally a gold one and went to the smelter a long time ago.

    Extract seems to confirm it was a solid gold case.

    I guess finding the melted gold case it’s impossible
