I've been meaning to do this for a while... Here's a shot showing two automatic-wind Gents watches. One is from 1950, it's an Omega Bumper (foreground) and in the background is the ubiquitous Invicta Subaqua Noma (Sellita sw200).


Here are some more shots of the Omega, if you are interested:



Thanks for looking!

Nice Omega.

I'll bet not everyone has one of those.

Thanks! Tiny, though, huh... It's like 35mm... I think they were proud of the miniaturation of the technology at that point, instead of how many hundreds of grams of "surgical-grade stainless steel" LOL
