    I don't often cross post a thread from another forum, but when I saw this particular watch over a WatchUSeek, I just have to do it:

    http://forums.watchuseek.com/f20/please-help-me-out-id-vintage-omega-733397-post5340231.html

    The guilloche pattern on this dial is so unique. It's got a very early 30T2 movement. Not a chronometer grade movement, but the case looks identical to the 30mm Chronometre that was made a couple of years later.

    The "OMEGA" on the plaque is actually engraved into the plaque and enameled. The later 1950's versions were simply painted on with a stencil.

    Always like to share things I haven't seen before,

    I did a little more research on this one. I think it is the exact same case as the OT2367 Chronometre, lugs and all. Even the spacer marked "metal" looks the same.

    Just pre-dates it by about two years, say 1940 or so.
