    Well, I first wanted to say thanks for the PM's from members and moderators here with their condolences on the passing of my Dad on the 17th.

    Means a lot to me.

    Also to say that I'm back - almost good as new.

    I've been left my Dad's 1930's or 40's Omega Seamaster watch - it was given to him by his Father in 1983.

    EDIT - LOOKS SIMILAR TO A WATCH FROM THE LATE 50's EARLY 60's

    I have little to no experience of Omega watches and whilst I am never looking to sell it, I would appreciate an approximate valuation for insurance purposes.

    I will try and post a picture later.

    If anybody can help?

    Thanks.

    I've got a 60's Omega Seamaster that my father-in-law had. Works well, looks well with a new strap and a polish at a local jewellers in St Annes. They reckoned a S/H value of £200 - £300. If your Dad's is a rarer vintage model could be worth more. Take it down to that Jewellers opposite BHS on the same side as the bowling alley. They valued SWMBO's jewellery for insurance. Is it called Leonard Dews or sommat? I think they do Omega watches.

    Great. Thanks I'll pop into Leonard Dews tomorrow. I can't seem to find the exact watch on the internet. I can date it from 1956 onwards due to the design of the rear of the watch....
