Omega Pilot's Watch?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

New on this forum and I wonder if anyone can explain this watch to me. Inherited it from my father-in-law who brought it back from Germany at the end of WWII. It was in this poor condition when he obtained it.

What I don't understand is why the face is offset from the normal position ie the winder which is the normal position on the case is at 12.00 instead of 3.00.

Someone has suggested it is a pilot's watch and this orientation would be useful when controlling the joystick. The back of the case is plain.

Any advice would be welcome!

Thanks

Trevor

I'd want to see the movement before making judgements, but even during the war Omega normally used Stainless steel watch cases, and the logo on the dial is off too.  Sadly faking watches is nothing new, but as I say I would want to see the movement.

Watches with the crown at 3 like this are sometimes called drivers watches

At first sight I agree with Scott. I have never seen an Omega chrome cased wrist watch and the Omega Logo looks too thin.and the hands look iffy also... But a photo of the caliber/movement would confirm everything.

Cheers Martin
