Hi guys,

Second time posting here. instead of asking more questions I thought it was about time I gave something back.

Here is the omega pocketwatch I was given a few weeks ago. It belonged to my great grandfather who was a captain in the british army in WWI, accompanying him at the battle of the somme as well as others during his time of military service.

The movement itself is dated to 1903 and is a 19''HN - considered to be the first movement and the very keystone of the omega company. unfortunately however, the case is from 1913 and was a replacement after the original one was damaged; it is plated brass and has a screw down bezel and hinged movement mount.

The dial itself is in very good condition with no cracks or blemishes and the hands are rose gold.

A very nice watch. I agree with Francois, timing the watch without first having it serviced would be pretty pointless, since the watch isn't running in its best possible condition at the moment.

Have the watch cleaned, checked and serviced by a qualified watchmaker. Usually the watchmaker will do a rough time-check of the watch as well, but timing is something you can also do yourself.
