    Hi, I found this watch. What do you say, everything looks original here?
    Does anyone know Rud Niklaus?

    Yes, this appears to be a Medicus model. Do you have a photo of the inside of the case back? I assume that Rud. Niklaus was a retail store in Berne. And also, dibs!

    It's a ref CK2008. Not sure of the seconds hand on yours.
    Here in a 1938 catalog :

    And in a 1940 catalog (you will notice that although the same ref, it has a sunken winding crown, like yours, which was not the case in 1937-38 :

    What do you mean by garçon. It is not an Omega model. Garçon means 'boy' as opposed to 'men'.

    Agreed. And this is merely an eBay seller's description, hardly an authority. Surprising he didn't add that it was 'Art Deco, Military, Very Rare' etc
