Things don’t change a lot when you’re on a good thing. This 1966 Omega pocket watch is a liitle slimmer and the case is more rounded and stylish than the more boxy 1947 predosesor that I have. Prima faci, the old 38.5 calibre and this newer 161 calibre look the same but they are not. I can’t pick a technological advantage one over the other. In fact the same thechnology can be found in watches of the late 1800’s. Like I said, why change a good thing.
This is a former NSW Government railway watch (N.S.W.G.R printed on dial) with a GR 12006 engraved on the back. The enamel dial is in perfect original condition with a slightly suncken sub second hand. The numbers are so stylish as are the blue gunmetal hands. I brought this for $100, replaced the glass, polished up the case, had the movement overhauled and the brocken balance staff replaced. I love this watch
