Sure is a great find. Now you've got me wondering. I have this old Omega I bought in the Navy Exchange in Eleuthera, BWI in 1964. I remember my first consideration was that the watch be thin, had a sweep second hand and that's about all. So, I picked this one, wore it for a couple of days and it stopped! Took it back to the store and they advised that I had to wind it. I assumed that all Omegas were self winding!!
Anyway, I wonder what model it is. I don't want to mess up the back and not sure what the proper method is to remove it. Don't want to scratch it up.

Dave, one-piece Omega case. Split stem, pull to remove stem. Remove the crystal via a crystal lift and the movement should come out.

Thanks Ernest, I suspected it might be a split stem. But I don't have a crystal lift.
There is a small slot for a case knife? just under the bezel.

Dave, your right. The bezel with crystal can be taken off with a knife, then you can lift the movement out. Actually a two-piece case since the bezel can be taken off.

Thanks Ernest,
But actually, I lost this watch along with quite a few others about three years ago when I had a major home break in!

I've tried to find a suitable replacement but nothing yet that I really like.
