Oh I see what you mean - so that extra little finger of a bridge next to the ratchet wheel holds the seconds pinion? I guess thatís how they managed the central seconds hand back in the day. Pretty ingenious. Thanks for the education and enjoy that beauty of a watch!

Wow, I love those vintage 30T2 models. Really nice dial on that one.

Omega actually made a 37mm version of the 30T2 watches in the 1940s and 1950s, which must have been absolutely HUGE back then. I've been trying to get one of those for about a year.

The crystal is definitely not original, the rest is though.

Still need to service it, did get my straps from crown and buckle. A 'forest green' perlon and a grey nato.

Not the best pic, but you get the idea
