    Can't quite read the hallmark under the balance wheel, but weren't all Omega movements of the era that rose gold plated colour? This looks like it would be one of the many 'common' movements if the 60s, FHF, Standard Ébauches, and a few others. Doesn't look like an Omega movement.

    well the fat arrow looks like this so I would expect some thing similar really in that one

    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    This is why I ended up giving up on finding a birth year Omega. So many fakes, Frankens, b*stards...

    This is clearly not an original dial, and I agree that the movement doesn’t look right, either.

    I think it is a timor cal 6060 if so they have put a new dial on it and slightly modify the movement and branded it so could even be a modified cal 1203

    With only a few exceptions, yes, most of those Omega movements were 'copper' plated.

    The AS1203 with a different regulator/anti-shock system could have been the base, but from the pics it's difficult to tell. After a bit more search I believe it is safe to say: this is not - and never was - an Omega watch.

    yeah my gut say it one of many 40's / 50's mil watches that was made could even be parts from several say timor and cyma maybe with a modern dial / hands maybe yes .. if in working order it took some effort to make it up really so kinda like the effort put in
