Please help me ID/Date a Vintage Omega 8 Day Travel Alarm Clock/Pocket Watch (1940s?)

#1 Post by iKokomo » Mon Jan 24, 2022 6:46 pm

Sorry, I know this is not quite a watch, but it does have a "watch/pocketwatch body."

Ok, I got this on FB Marketplace and I have no clue the history/year of this Omega 8 Day Travel Alarm Clock. It seems to have a pocked watch-styled body.

There are a couple on Google Images and eBay that have similar "clock holders" but I can only find one that looks like this watch face.

I have tried to open the casing, but I have no clue how to.

I was wondering what the year/history of this neat Omega clock is?

I found a Worthpoint page with an old eBay listing that specifies 1944. But the seller doesn't mention how that date was arrived at, so can't really be considered authoritative. But it certainly looks like it could be from 1944.

I just opened up the clock. A quick run of the serial number on the movement puts it at around 1944. Here are photos of the movement and the back of the casing.
