Can anyone tell me more about this watch? Which year of manufacture etc.. 🙏
3 dig numbers under the balance spring: 234 s.c.
I got this watch as heritage. You think it's a doctors watch ? Grandpa was a doctor.
I really try hard to find out more about this watch but I can’t find the same watch anywhere on the internet.

the caliber is 23.4SC, it was marketed as a doctors watch because of the center seconds for timing pulse etc.
found this on a site, hope it helps

First centre seconds and Omega "Medicus"
The 23.4SC version of the calibre 23.4 was the first Omega wristwatch calibre with centre seconds, the SC designation identifies centre seconds. The 23.4SC movement is 23.4mm diameter and 4.5mm high, slightly thicker than the small seconds version which is 3.75mm high. The extra thickness is due to the centre seconds drive gear, which in this movement is driven indirectly from arbor of the third wheel. For more about indirect drive centre seconds see centre seconds.
Because its centre seconds hand was useful when taking a pulse rate, the watch was marketed to medical personnel as the Omega "Medicus".
