Hi! The watch is a fairly typical low to mid-grade Omega from around 1910, in what looks to be a poorly maintained gunmetal-style case. As far as my history knows, the French "nobility" ceased to exist as such in 1870 (many decades before this watch was made). That might explain why he was giving out such pedestrian watches.
