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.

Very nice piece. The swan-necked regulator indicates that this is a very high-grade movement - have you tested the timekeeping yet?
I suggest you should NOT try to check the timekeeping before having the watch serviced, cleaned and oiled. After so many years, the oil has no doubt set or dried, and it would not be wise to let the watch "run dry".
The watch was serviced about a week ago, I went with HazChrono to have it done. :-!
