Mid 1900s Omega Pocket Watch with Inside Number 2266455 Case Number 1155964. By the end of the Great War, the wristwatch was the latest timing accessory, although not widely available, that would ultimately influence the watch history, but the pocket watch was not yet at its peak. It is true that the pocket watch had to keep up with the permanent miniaturizing process and reinvent in so many ways, but the demand was still high by 1960[x=#226/][x=#8364/][x=#8482/]s. Omega did not use a matching number serial system for case and movements, but chose a close range unpaired serials instead, while the gap between the two gradually increased during time. * ( twist of time )
