    I have a similar one in the shop...

    [​IMG]

    Slightly different hand, and case, but a similar overall layout.

    What is the case number?

    Is it not a shock protected balance? There are plenty of Incabloc staffs out there, but non-shock staffs are harder to come by.

    No idea where in the world you are located, but have you tried watch material suppliers in your area/country for the staff?

    Hi Al,
    Yes, it has a similar layout. Is the dial spotted or is that just the crystal?
    I'll have to get the case number next week. The watch is at a friend's house and he & his wife are ill.
    As to where I am located, I'm in The Promised Land - sometimes referred to as Greater Vancouver BC

    You could try Perrin watch parts.

    Reproduction crowns that were made for the Royal Air Force 30T2SC are available on Ebay- seller Latriaz. He’s a private collector.
    They don’t look exactly like the ones on the pictures here but at least they fit and they are the exact reproduction of Omega crowns.

    Does it have 18 jewels? I am from BC, too. And I have a watch that looks the same.
