Btw how do insert a picture vintage omega
Hello and welcome. What has your research discovered so far? Have you been able to work out what movement/caliber it is? Have you identified the serial number?
It would be great if you could crop away the excess parts of your photos and re-post them so that we can actually get a good look at the watch instead of the background and strap. Unfortunately, it's hard to see much. Any other introductory information you'd like to provide about yourself and how you got the watch would be very welcome.
No problem Yes it was given to me as gift from a friend who’s grandfather has it and I am not sure what type of watch and anything about it ??
I am creative designer I love watches I am a lover of vintage items and was blessed to receive this
I may have to take closer photos to be able to identify the numbers
*clearer photos would help, too.
If you're using a cellphone camera, try to get as much light in there as possible.
Yes, it will be helpful to see the numbers. The dial has been re-painted at some point, which was a common way to preserve watches when the dial became aged or damaged. It looks to me that the movement and dial of this watch were shipped from Switzerland to the US and cased by the US-based Wadsworth watch case company in a gold-filled case. It is sometimes a bit difficult to get detailed identifying information about these locally cased watches, compared to watches manufactured entirely in Switzerland, which generally have archived reference numbers inside the case. However, there may be some experts on the forum who know more about the Wadsworth-cased pieces.
This is known as a "bumper" automatic movement, with an oscillating weight that rotates back and forth with the motion of your wrist to wind the watch. Although it is automatic-winding, it is still good to hand-wind the watch using the crown to get it started before wearing it. Then the automatic winding can maintain power.
Do you have an idea if it has value ? If so ?
Looks like a bumper 35X. The dial usually has ‘automatic’ written on it under ‘OMEGA’. I think this is the first example that I’ve seen without it.
I’m guessing it left the factory with the word “automatic” but when it was redialed they left that out.
As far as value goes, search “omega bumper” on eBay and you’ll get an idea. Unfortunately the watch was redialed at some point and has lost most of its collector value. Additionally gold filled watches don’t seem to be as popular as there steel brothers. But it’s still a cool watch with a historic movement.
