What is striking about this Omega pocket watch is the dial design. Elaborate yet highly functional. It has bold black Arabic hour numerals with adjacent numerals counting 13 to 24. A railroad track outer. There is a central elaborate Guilloche infilled circle and a sunken small seconds sub-dial at 6. Lovely Breguet blued steel hands. The dial is marked Omega together with the Omega logo. Beneath this, it is marked  A B Oscar Burman, Umeå Skellefteå Robertsfors. This relates to the original retailer in Sweden and three Swedish towns located near the coast of the Gulf of Bothnia.

 

The case is solid silver, stamped Omega and .800 on the inside of the case-back. It's in good condition for its age but shows wear that you would expect from a 90-year-old watch with sundry small dinks and scratches. The bezel was originally coloured gold although this has largely worn off. The back has a central blank cartouche which, together with the overall guilloche finish has worn down. Opening the case-back reveals a silver dust cover which displays the seven Omega Exhibition medals and is fully hallmarked on the inside.

 

The watch is run by the in-house manufactured Omega 40.6 LT2 15P calibre. It's beautifully finished, clean and runs well.
