"Less is more" is certainly true for this very early Omega ladies pocket watch. All original and in great condition for an antique watch over 100 years old. Such a pretty watch, it's the size of a man's 1960s wrist watch so can be worn as a traditional pocket watch, on a chain as a pendant, or just sit in a purse.
The solid silver case is a delight with only age wear and no dings. The back of the case has an engineered patern with a central non-engraved cartouche. Both the front and back of the case hinge open. It was made by Omega in Switzerland before 1907 and bears the Swiss marks for a silver intended for export to the UK; namely on both the case back lid and dust cover two large and one small bear, two bears on the chain ring and a single bear on the pendant base. The case is stamped Omega and the purity of silver is .935, slightly better than sterling silver at .925. The porcelain dial has no hairlines and is wonderfully simple and functional. Inside, the movement is stamped Omega and runs just as a beautifully made Swiss watch should. The last picture is a comparison with a medium sized man's pocket watch. Would make a lovely gift - bling it is not!
