Battle of Britain Omega Weems Watch 6B/159 (Pg 5 Compasses and Clocks 1A)

Worn by RAF Battle of Britain Pilots and Navigators

This is one of the rarest piece's on this site and a most desirable time piece of WWII .

 Omega supplied only 2000 Watches to the RAF during the entirety of the War.

This one off batch of 2000 being shipped from Omega to Goldsmiths & Silversmiths Jewelers to the Queen on the 5th of January 1940 in time for the Battle of Britain. Once checked they were then issued to the Air ministry and distributed to the Pilots and navigators of the RAF Operational Squadrons. Its was originally purchased some thirty plus years ago from a Scout Jumble sale in Biggin Hill.  Biggin Hill was one of the most famous  RAF Fighter Station's of WWII and Battle of Britain history and so it can be assumed it belonged to one of the fighter pilots who operated there. This piece is particularly rare having a red colored second hand. The Weems Omega was recently seen being worn in the film about Dunkirk, the Spitfire Pilot played by "Tom Hardy" used the watch to calculate His remaining fuel.

 Omegas were not  supplied to the Air Ministry again in this design, similar watches in the same style were supplied by Longines and Movado at approximately half the cost of the one with the Omega movement and although not plentiful are allot more common than the Omega.

Out of stock more required please contact me

This watch has not been restored and is original in every respect. The locking knob for the bezel has been removed at some stage probably because it was not needed when worn as a normal watch and gets in the way of the winding and time setting knob. The movement has been inspected by a watch maker and the movement is in good condition. Its a great shame that the locking knob has been removed but the bezel still rotates and the internal shaft appears to still be in place. I have taken advice from an expert in these watches who thinks the retail value of a complete piece is around 7 to 9 K GBP but with so few examples to gauge its value is hard to establish, one thing is for sure it can only appreciate in value over time. My price should allow for this watch to be restored to its original specification.
