    OMEGA ?

    So while i'm in the mood i have another pocket watch that was in my fathers bits and bobs Before i go on i must warn you that it has seen better days and i was thinking of having it restored but that might be wishful thinking . It belonged to my father but i think it was in this condition when it came in to his possession. Anyway once again any remarks good or bad are appreciated. DW.

    As long as the balance wheel moves freely about, may not be that big of a thing. Hard to tell unless the dial is removed. But it looks like an interesting project ahead!

    Looks to me like a 15J movement from just before WW1. Nice watch in its heyday, Omega would be happy to restore it for you if you bring lots of money.
    If it's a family heirloom you could try contacting a watchmaker who specializes in antique resurrection.
