I may be wrong, but those hands look mismatched...

You will need the serial number from the movement to date it correctly. As Shangas has mentioned the hands look mismatched to me as well. A picture of the movement would be of much more help.

I don't have the tool to open it myself. I'll take it to my local watchmaker tomorrow and post a pic of the movement afterwards. It didn't occur to me that the hands might be mismatched, but perhaps that's something else to investigate. Here's a closer view of the hands. Cheers.

Here is a picture of the hands on another Omega. You will see the difference between the hands.

Yep. The hour and minute hands are mismatched. I suspect that the minute-hand was lost or broken and had that current one replace it when a more matching replacement couldn't be found. A watchmaker should be able to rectify that problem though. That particular style of hands ('Spade' hands, aren't they?) was a very common and popular style.

Here is a pic of the movement if that is any help, thanks.

It was produced between 1935 and 1939 approximately. If the list of serial numbers I have is correct. The movement looks similar to the Omega 40.6L T2, but I can't be sure. I am sure you will get a better answer then mine soon.
