Ten Louis Brandt and Frère - Omega & Labrador watches.

In the last couple of months I have been able to buy in more "Omega's" than I normally would expect to get in a year, here are most of them, 2 at Brackley missed the group shot. They vary in size from approximately English size 10 to a rare size 18. 

They date from 1897 through to 1922 and all are essentially the classic François Chevillat 1894 designed Omega movement and have 15 jewels with a Breguet sprung cut compensating balance with double roller.

Two from 1900 are unusual in that they carry the Omega name or Logo but have screw mounted jewels on the top plate and a screw micro regulator and are therefore the higher grade Labrador in all but name, but this is before LB&F changed the company name to Omega.
