    Hi, does anyone have this?

    If so, I was hoping to get a scan/photo of the page(s) mentioning the (apparently rare) calibre 27.94NN calibre. Besides the GR catalogue its the only place I've found where it is mentioned. I am afraid I don't know the page number.

    Edit 1: Cal 27.96NN
    Edit 2: Also found in the Calibre list in the sticky.

    Cheers

    I have looked through "Kreuzer" and AJTT and the only movement which came near your caliber was a 27.96 NN and not 27.94 NN

    I am not sure if you did a typo or not?

    Hope it helps...

    Yes that's it. Sorry typo on my part.

    Did either book have any accompanying text? It was claimed that Kreuzer does, but this is second hand information. Its a 3/0 size which I guess was made for the USA market.

    Thanks so much for your help.

    The only remark I could find was "rare movement"

    Thanks Mac_Omega and Bumper. I very much appreciate the info.

    I have asked the museum if they have anything else, now I am finally confident of the calibre ID. I suspect they won't.

    It's a nice watch, I'll post some photos once I done with its rehabilitation.

    Wow, thanks. I had not found that thread. Do you own the example on the left of your photo? That is a most curious case.

    Yes it's mine. Non Omega case if I remember well. Unusual indeed with its Inside spacer fixed with screws).

    I would be interested in seeing some more photos of that watch if you can. I have a double sunk dial, unlike Busmatt's, or the other one posted.

    As to cases, I can see no reason for Omega to make a negative set 3/0 movement other than to fit US made cases. Mine has a sterling silver Illinois case. I've asked Busmatt what his was. I'd be surprised to see an Omega case. Have you come across any?

    I have just looked an it is one of 4 Calibres marked as rare in the Omega Calibre sticky.

    I count 5 posted on this forum including mine - this place really is a fantastic resource. :thumbsup:
