Anyone recognise these watches: Invar & Omega pocket watch.

Recommended Posts

Hi there! 
 

My grandfather left me and my twin brother two pocket watches. I've only got 1 picture of them at the moment, but can get more of them. 

I was wondering if anyone could tell me a little something about them. 
Best regards 

Mats Agbo

dear @Agbo, those two watches of yours look to be very nice indeed. I  haven't researched your watches specifically and, as you know already, I did post a topic concerning "Invar" some time ago. However, would say that your Omega and Invar pocket watches were manufactured during the same period, some time around 1920, but without pictures of the movement, any stamped markingson watch or case, etc., it is difficult to be precise.:)

yes i'm intrigued after reading Always "watching"'s "terry pratchet" inspired post...and would love to see pics of the movement of the Invar.....As you probably already know.....Omega is a sought after quality Swiss manufacturer....and being gold (by the looks)....it is not something you or your brother want to be leaving on the seat of a bus....your grandad must have been very fond of you both....dates can be understood by the assay mark (letter and style of letter)....on the case....and i believe Omega watch movements can be dated by the serial numbers?....would love to see pics of the movements and assay marks on these beautiful watches....:)

@Always"watching" Thank you for taking your time to follow up on the request! I am going home this weekend, and will definitely fetch the watches and do a few photos!

@enfuseeast Really enthusiastic about your post. The only thing I can say for a certain is that they are both gold (I was told by my father when he got them).

 I will try to find any assay marks as well as taking a few pictures of the movement. Hopefully I've got a bunch of photos to show you guys in a few days!
