    With the release this week from Omega of their 1913 single pusher chronograph all of my watch fantasies were fulfilled. It is a shame that I would never have been able to afford one of the 18 pieces that were made but I can still dream about it at night. It is claimed that T.E, Lawrence wore this watch and I know that there are some who dispute this. I was wondering, what watch did Peter O'Toole wear for the film? Several years ago I recall looking through an Omega catalogue and seeing the listing of the 1913 chronograph with a military-style Omega that they said was worn for the film but I cannot recall anything about the movement or pattern of the watch. I would love to know if anyone has some insight into this.

    Good book with some different interpretations - Lawrence in Arabia by Scott Anderson.

    Nothing like resurrecting an old thread. This is the best image I could find from the film used prop. Definitely not a WW1 chronograph! Would be interested to hear peoples thoughts.
