RAF watch is a sale flier in Canada

This Omega ‘Weems’ Royal Air Force pilot’s wristwatch below was one of the sought-after entries in a 311-lot auction of watches and jewellery at Miller & Miller (18/15% buyer’s premium) in New Hamburg, Ontario, on November 24.

Omega ‘Weems’ RAF watch – Can$7000 (£4140).

Dating from c.1940-41, with a stainless steel case and a canvas strap, the manually wound watch ref CK2129 has a bi-directional rotating bezel with a currently non-working locking function.

According to Miller & Miller’s Ethan Miller, it is an example of the type of original watch that is becoming increasingly hard to find, resulting in a double-estimate final price of Can$7000 (£4140).
