    I bought a old Omega pocket watch. The dial took my intension because it is different material than usual. I would like to know anything possible about watch. It has been serviced, because there are a few markings inside. Dial is some sort of metal. (silver?) THe case is stamped 33XXXXX but that doesent tell the age of watch? Watch measurements are case 50mmx50mm. Dial is 42mm. Movement is 37mm. Thickness is 10mm.Thank you!

    Welcome to OF! See that you are a new member. It is customary to expect/hope for a brief introduction from new members, maybe a bit about who you are etc. Alternatively you could just do your own research to find the information you are seeking. ‘Old omega pocket watch identify’ – is that a demand, a request or what? How will you send the money for this information? Sorry about that.

    Moving on to your watch, the good news is that it seems to be original. The movement appears to be an Omega 17/19’’’ (that means a calibre 17’’’ in a 19’’’ case – common from that period) and I would guess dates about 1904. The case appears to be silver (will be confirmed by the hallmarks inside the caseback – which you don’t show).
    The dial is silvered metal: although dials from this period were often enamelled, your dial is also typical from the period.

    In summary, nothing special, well-worn but seemingly original and nice to see.

    The movement could be a 17''' with 15 jewels - I guess it is a little bit larger than 37cm, isn't it? On these early calibers from the 19''' series, the serial number of the movement is usually stamped on the dial face. But the serial number of the case is already helfull: it dates back the date of production to about 1902-1907, which is consistent with the production period of this caliber.

    Edit: I posted my message when OMTOM was posting his! I guess he said all could be said with the infos and pics you provided.

    Hello! I am sorry i was so excited that i forgot the manors! I am from Finland and been interested about watches three years. First i buy automatic watches from modern brands but i been more and more interested about vintage watches. I live in northern part of my country and we have wery limited possibilities to find vintage watches. Thats why i was so enthusiastic when i found this lovely piece. :) The topic of my writing was ment to be a question and i try to write it down better next time. I love Omega as a brand and i think im concentrating on that brand. Thank you for letting me in on the forums and thank you for information about my watch. I appreciate it very much.

    What a nice introduction – and interesting!

    Regarding hallmarks, your outer caseback shows the Swiss hallmark for 0,800 silver, which was a grouse (coq de bruyère). The inner caseback shows both the Swiss marks and also German marks – which for 0800 silver are the half moon and Imperial crown, Halbmond und Reichskrone, together with the manufacturer’s mark (Omega).

    If you’re interested in hallmarks, please see David Boettcher’s excellent website:
