Dating a vintage omega pocket watch
Their new OMEGA Vintage Information Database allows you to, after a brief registration, look up a lot of details on vintage models.
While the initial release of the database is still being filled in with details, the listings are not totally comprehensive.
But any serial number can be looked up to see what model number the completed watch left the factory as.
Once you have the serial number, go to the official OMEGA website at select their CUSTOMER SERVICE section.
But unfortunately, the most common answer to these question is that the description is so vague or ambigious that it is useless in identifying the watch enough to tell them any more than they already know.
While we understand that people are trying their best, realize that virtually all watches have nearly the same external features.
Model numbers are subject to change, can be different in different countries, and vary based on dealer swappable parts such as bracelets and straps.
So a model number is not a permanent identifier of a watch.
As of March 2004, OMEGA has added an outstanding feature on their official website.
From there select the "VALUE A WATCH" feature and follow the instructions.
There is no simple answer to the value of used and older models.
But this is a tremendous leap in customer service which OMEGA deserves high commendation for!
The most readily available piece of inforamtion to identify your watch is its serial number.
