Trebor’s vintage watch collection

At Trebor’s Vintage Watches we specialize in restored vintage watches, including Omega, Longines, Rolex and other quality antique and pre-owned mechanical wristwatches. We do not normally sell current production timepieces but do offer a number of “New Old Stock” watches. We are based in Montreal, Canada and ship our professionally refurbished watches around the world. We have been in business for 25 years and have had a presence on the Internet since 1998.

All of our vintage watches are sold in good working order. Most have been serviced by our watchmaker, or in some cases were recently serviced elsewhere and have passed our watchmaker’s inspection. Servicing normally includes complete disassembly, cleaning, oiling of the watch movement and timing and adjustment upon reassembly. If during reassembly any parts show excessive wear the watchmaker will replace them with new original parts (if available), will find parts from another vintage movement or will sometimes make a part by hand. The outer case may be lightly buffed to remove surface scratches, and if required a replacement crystal installed. An original dial showing some patina and age marks that still looks nice will be left alone, but often the aging process has gone beyond looking nice and in these cases the dial will be professionally refinished (we always indicate if a dial has been refinished in our description). Most of our restored old watches are fitted with new leather straps. In short you will receive a magnificent looking antique timepiece that has been fully restored to its original condition.

#5495 Omega Seamaster W.W.W. broad arrow British military watch circa 1948

Omega W.W.W. British military watch

This is a very rare and great looking stainless steel Omega military wristwatch with fixed lugs, broad arrow inscription, and manual wind 30T2 movement, it is fully signed on dial, case and crown and movement and has WWW markings both inside and outside the case. . Military watches like this are highly sought after and this is a rare one as it is also marked Seamaster on the dial which is not common, most are just marked Omega. Three facts have led to my conclusion that the watch dates to 1948. 1) The movement has a 10 million serial number which would usually be attributed to 1944 but was actually used in low production until 1951. 2). The dial is signed Seamaster which Omega first used in 1948. 3) The movement doesn’t have a 3 digit cal number, just the 30T2 under the balance wheel, Omega started using the 3 digit designation in 1949. The winding crown has the Omega logo but I believe that this is a replacement crown and the original had no logo. The manual wind movement has just been serviced by our watchmaker it is working well but running a bit slow. Photos are not actual size of watch, it measures 34 mm across (not including crown) x 45 mm lug to lug and is fit with a new black and grey striped Nato bracelet.

  




#5496 Omega “transitional” 47mm wire lug pocket watch conversion

Omega
Status: Available for $895

During the first world war many small pocket watches were converted to wristwatches by soldering on lugs and adding a leather strap. These watches are commonly referred to as “transitional” or “trench” watches and are popular with collectors today. The reason for these conversions was to make the watch more accessible for timing of military maneuvers, having to pull one’s watch out of the pocket to see the time just wasn’t practical in the trenches. This Omega watch offered for sale is a recent conversion, it is an authentic Omega with signed case and movement and a refinished dial, dial is incorrectly marked automatic, watch is manual wind. The case has a gunmetal finish and is fit with a hand made bracelet. The manual wind movement has just been serviced by our watchmaker it is working well. Photos are not actual size of watch, it measures 47 mm across (not including crown) x 55 mm lug to lug and is fit with a custom made leather bracelet.

This Rodania Geometer is one of the nicest 50’s vintage triple register chronograph with Valjou 72 movement that you will ever see. It is rumoured that Omega’s famous Speedmaster from the early 60’s was inspired (copied) from this watch. Whatever the truth is, other than the hands they do look striking similar and the Rodania appeared before the Omega. The Stainless steel case is in mint condition, dial and hands are great and the movement has just been serviced by our watchmaker. Photos are not actual size of watch, it measures 37 mm across (not including crown) x 45 mm lug to lug. Watch is fit with a new leather bracelet.
