I'm not sure that dial is correct for an Omega WWW. It's not an "original" dial & I also don't think it's a MoD redial. As far as I know the A in Omega should always be flat-topped. The numerals & pheon are also wrong. Do you think it's been redialed or refinished?

I'm not sure TBH, you're probably better qualified than I on such matters! The Omega came from a now retired local watchmaker who had vast amounts of ex MoD watches (I'm sure he had worked at Herstmonceux Castle) so it could well be a marriage as he had masses of boxes  of parts and watches.

The dial doesn't look genuine. Might just be a redial or something. Everything has been relumed which further enforces this idea. Don't know if hands are the original ones either.

ALso, missing lume plots on hour markers.

I've got an IWC one from my Dad. Wearing it now. I love it, it's my go to every day watch. Any thoughts on what year it's from?....

That’s easy. All of the WWW’s are from a single year…1945.

Your IWC has had it’s original Radium dial changed at a later date, to a Tritium-lumed one(hence the circled ‘T’). It has the watch’s NATO stock number on the dial, hence it’s called the ‘NATO dial’
