    Here are two unusual early Omega watches. One needs a new spring but it will have to wait. To many projects.

    Fun thread! Here's mine. Its got a 5mil serial. I'm seeing a lot of the crowns look like this brass color. Is mine original? Also what would the name be for the style of numerals.

    Just come across this amazing thread and am grateful for the statement (which I didn't know) that Patria watches tended to have generic movements. This one has a pretty standard Fontainmelon one and I don't think the form has yet had much exposure within this thread, so I thought I should show mine.

    Damn!
    My luck she'd split wide open in shipping.

    Rather than throw it away, go ahead and send it to me, brother.

    My only trench, American cased with some history.
    Pardon the flash.
    I do like the term crystal guard instead of shrapnel guard.
    As Dougie said, "If shrapnel is ripping through, are you worried about your watch ?"

    I doubt it, it appears to be very minor, and if there were no lume, I'd bet it would soak out.

    Dude this is becoming spam. Start a new thread. If someone can help you they will. Stop posting the same problem over and over.
