Hi and welcome,

Not sure why you say Omega?

The case is marked silver, import Mark for London (u) and date letter 'C' for 1918.

LW would be the case makers name! Unsure of the movement, but would have thought Omega would have signed their movements?

It certainly does look like that omega movement!

However, assuming that is an Omega movement, the serial number dates the watch to 1902-1908

Omega Serial Numbers By Year...

So the case and movement were produced at-least 10 years apart... It could well be that the original case (which may have been signed Omega), has been replaced for this later silver case...

I have this movement. Balance, stone in shaton & micro regulation looks identical
minus the jeweled centre wheel/shantons....

Its obviously an early Omega movement... Hopefully someone can ID it!

I believe there was a period around the turn of the century when the company that made Omegas (L. Brandt et Fils) formed a sales and distribution alliance with some other watch manufacturers. These watches would be imported into other countries by local companies set up for that purpose.

This has lead to a certain amount of confusion over the "lineage" of some watches from that period; a confusion that is frequently exploited by people looking to inflate the value of the items they're selling.
