    Just browsing the web, and came across a picture of this Omega.

    No information at all - all I would say is that it's 1930/40s Omega sector dial. Does anyone know what reference it may be I just love it and would love to pick one up similar for my collection!

    Not sure of the reference, but probably running a cal 26.5

    These are very sought after dials and when housed in large 36mm and up cases can be very expensive indeed.

    For example this one at over $30K :eek:

    Found some info about that in Tim Mackrain' s database. Indeed, caliber 26.5, as suggested above. Screenshot_20200802-100232.jpg

    And this one looks like it could be the smaller 23.5. Much more affordable and great value.....if you like a 30mm case diameter ;)

    No offense intended to the OP, it always surprises me how people talk about « picking up » expensive watches as if they were mushrooms.

    Nice watch by the way. I wish they grew like mushrooms.

    Caliber 26.5 is a historic movement itself - and the dial extremely attractive. The size, however, makes it a bit difficult to wear.
