    The 30mm manual wind omega is a classic omega movement and correctly considered one of the all time great movements. I've posted in another thread that that over 3 decades this movement powered such a huge number of different watches. Share pictures of some your examples in this thread to help illustrate the huge variety of models that featured this movement.

    Let's see if we can get images of as many different 30mm movements as possible. I'll go first with a Ref 2791 and cal266, followed by a Ref2640 with(center seconds)

    Thanks. Don't have a moonwatch, but the JB band also seems appropriate...

    Don't worry about it. Pretty sure there's a guy around here who's never owned one and doesn't like the way they sit on his wrist. :eek:

    I'll pass on my Ref. 2179/5, as two members above have the identical watch. But I do have a cal. 269:

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    My first vintage watch and one of the last of the breed. Omega said manufacture date was July 1964. No case reference number as it was an Argentina national production model.

    Enjoy,

    Very nice watches here. Here's one from my collection that doesn't come to mind quickly when thinking of 30mm movement omegas but is one of the very best - a cal. 284 near mint Railmaster (ref. 2914) with 7077 bracelet (also came in its original box but sadly no papers):
