ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Somehow I don’t think these were made by Omega!
They strike me more as -repurposed- pocket watches, with their actual usage in those shapes being more akin to mantle-clocks or timepieces for a nightdresser or the like.
It seems unlikely that they’d have actually been carried in one’s pocket the way they are now, but I can understand why someone might want to convert a cheap pocket watch into a small decorative clock.
It’s the other Omega, the one in “Swit Zerland”!
I guess as long as you treat it as a replica it’s ok. I’d actually buy some of the watches he has, just because of their look.
