    Hello
    I need help to learn about an Omega ref 2383-5 and I have some questions about.
    Inside the case back appears SLF and below the number 117. I have read it is the name of a factory that makes steel cases for Swedish market, isn't it?
    And what 117 means?
    And the upper 563?
    And my last question, is it a military watch?
    Thanks a lot and nice summer.

    2400 and 2383 are related

    There have been asked for the SLF before, but i dont remember there was any valid explanation

    The Suveran model (CK2400) was bought by the Swedish government and then sold to their citizens at a higher price to finance public spending.
    I don't really know if that happens with the CK2383, but it could be the same.

    No the ref. 2383 was sold all over the world and ref. 2400 in Sweden only. I have bought ref. 2383 in Sweden before so i guess 2383 was sold there also.

    Thanks for your replies. I can assume that 2383 is not a military reference but if SLF was engraved inside the case, are you safe that any of the 2383 were not for military use?
    I found SLF could corresponde Schwedische Luftwaffe, isn't it?

    Wouldn't it be more likely to reference something based on "Svenska flygvapnet" which Google translate tells me is "Swedish Air Force"?

    Sorry for use German words and also sorry for the mistake. But I think the acronym SLF comes from German words, not Swedish.
    Next time I use Google translate to make you happy.

    The are no military connection with the 2383.

    I have seen sellers claim all kind of strange millitary connection and also claims that SLF is a military stamp :)

    Hey @Germanicus, nothing against Germans or the German language. They have given us wonderful words like "Schadenfreude" and "Weltschmerz" In fact I'm off to Berlin in September for a visit :D

    Not sure currywurst will be top of my list though......
