Any clock expert here? Need help to identify an Omega clock!

Dear all,

my father sent me some photos of an Omega clock which he found it at a flea market and told me that I should be able to find some information about it since Omega is from Switzerland and I live in Switzerland! . I am wondering if anyone here knows something about clock. He told me it is an unique one because Omega is usually a watch manufacturer....

Any pointer would be much appreciated...like a forum or something like that. I am even thinking to go to visit the Omega museum in Biel to ask about that....

Interesting indeed - never heard of Omega clocks. I would definitely go there and ask to speak to the Curator. Might be a good idea to send them a copy via website and ask for an appointment. Do keep us informed.

Omega first started in the town of La Chaux-de-Fonds- so you could also contact the 'Musée de l'horlogerie' there for info.

Tell him to inspect it very carefully and email you what is written on the clock. Type the text into a google search and you might be lucky to get a match...

You should also be able to identify what the artwork is, and what is the writing at the bottom of the artwork on the clock side ?

Look up antique Omega carriage clock and you will find a few similar ones but not too much information.

It's very pretty though. I'll have it if he doesn't want it.
