    lol i know the title of this thread sounds like something that you would be asking the doctor.
    but i truly do need help in finding out what kind of watch i have.
    and if it is worth anything. i know it is worth a bit but i would like to get a rough idea so when i am asking around at collector shops and other such places i will know the value of it a bit better.

    not only this. i would love to find out just any info at all about this wath as i am very interested in its history.
    thanks in advance.

    serial number on the inside of the watch says 6960851, and on the inside of the back cover is another number 8045081
    15 Jewel movement.

    i got a couple watch's from a local second hand shop for $5 each and one of them is a OMEGA and from the looks of it and from what i have found out in my 2 days of constant online searching threw to many websites to count, all i could work out is.
    1: the watch is very old.
    2: the watch looks to be made in a ladies style ( flowers are engraved into side of the watch and on top of the joints, also there is lines engraved going all around the outer face of the watch on the casing ).
    3: on close inspection and under the right lighting i can see the hour and minute hands are red in colur, and the second hand is blue.
    4: this watch has many engravings inside of the back casing.
    5: i am going a little crazy from not being able to find this same watch anywhere online lol..........

    I don't know much about the watches themselves, but from the quality and angles of the pix, I think I know who owned them!

    Coincidence?

    lol thanks for the reply, and yea it is possible these watch's belonged to me in the past and i lost them over the years and forgot about em and now they have returned to me :p...
    from the numbers on the OMEGA watch i am thinking it is from the years 1923 to 1930.. or there abouts....

    oh and they both still work and keep perfect timing, ya just cant kill these mighty OMEGA watch's lol.....

    oh yea as for the quality and angles of the photo's... i did my best with what i have and that is. 1 old lens from video recorder (the kind that takes tape) 22x lens... and attached it to my mobile phone and changed the settings to Macro lens, zooming in with the camera normaly gives only 4x zoom...
    but with the lens attached it then changes to 88x Macro zoom ;)
    so getting the angle right can be a little tricky lol....

    Might this be a converted pocket watch? Perhaps earlier than you think? Very early 1900s? Your pictures do show the small things, but I think others here may be waiting for pictures of the whole watch. Entire movement picture and case back picture. They are differently some thing I would like style wise. Wonder if they can be properly IDed.

    The second watch looks like a generic Pin set Swiss movement that started it's life as a small pocket watch. All the letters and number scratched inside the case backs are probably just watchmakers marks made during servicing.

    You have the right time period for the Omega, 1920's. I think it is a dedicated wristwatch case, made for Omega.

    Don't see any hallmarks, so it's probably nickel or German silver.

    When cleaned up, it will be a nice piece.

    Around 1925 judging by the serial? Give or take a year or two? Also looks like a converted pocket watch. It looks like something a hipster or even an indie would wear, not worth much outside of those circles. Heck come to think of it not worth much inside of those circles either ;)
