G'Day All,
I have been asked to try and find out anything I can about an OMEGA pocket watch that was sold in Australia close to 100 years ago.
The face has the name "Fairfax & Roberts Sydney & London".
It was owned by the father of the 80 year old lady who has sought my assistance.
I have attached a few photos, taken tonight.

Further to the original post, can anyone assist with sourcing a hair spring for this watch?

You will have to try and identify the Caliber first Phil, to do so, need more info, size across the dial plate to start.

Also under the dial so one can see the setting mechanism.

Looks very similar to a 35/5 or 35/7 caliber if it is around 16 lignes but can not be sure until I have the above info.

Just on another note Phil, "Fairfax & Roberts Jewelers" are still in existence on Castlereagh Street, Sydney. They first started out in 1858 on George StreetSmile
