    We can help if you post pictures (and further fine tune if you provide serial numbers).

    The diy approach is to use serial numbers for age and eBay sold listings for value.

    The blue watch definitely looks like the dial may have been refinished, but all-in-all the single photo you have provided so far is not enough to receive much in the way of meaningful responses. Item 1 in the following guidelines can help you put together a better post that forum members can respond to:

      When you have a vintage Omega that you would like to get some information about, whether you've found something you like on eBay or for sale locally, have had it for 50 years, or recently inherited it from a family member or friend, we welcome you to create a new thread in the Vintage Omega Forum topic and a number of Omega vintage enthusiasts will likely be able to offer assistance. For the best results in your inquiry, we highly recommend considering the following points:

      1: Post Quality Pictures

      We cannot stress enough how important it is to post multiple, high quality, clear photographs of the watch in question from as many angles as possible, the most important being the dial, caseback (inside and out) and crown side. The amount of assistance people are able to give is directly related to the number and quality of photographs provided.

      All members are able to upload images directly to the forum and the mechanism for doing so is fairly straight forward.

      2: What Can You Tell Us?

      Please give as much detail on what you do currently know about the piece as is possible, including (if possible) where it came from, how long you've had it, when it was last serviced, even if you are guessing, the more pieces to the puzzle there are the easier it is to assemble the full picture.

      3: How Can We Help You?

      Please give a clear idea of the information you are after, whether it be identification, dating, model numbers, servicing / maintenance / restoration advice or even ballpark valuations.

      4: Is It Owned Or Being Considered?

      Let us know whether this is a watch you ALREADY own or a watch you are CONSIDERING purchasing, as generally a watch someone already owns will be treated in a more gentle fashion, while a watch that is "under consideration" should be assessed with a more critical eye. In other words let us know whether you are looking for responses with an aim to identify potential, or with an aim to identify defects.


      We may edit this at a later date, but following these four points should give you the best chance possible of getting the information and help you are seeking.


      In closing, please remember that any information given here is based on our available resources. Personal opinion may also be involved since we're only human. Valuations will be approximate and usually related to recent sales histories of similar watches - they are not appraisals suitable for any official purpose.
