    Authenticity of Wire Lugged Omega?

    Hi all,

    I came across this watch on the bay.Is this what you would call a wire lugged case?If so I really like the design.

    However I'm a bit curious as to the originality of the watch.Looking forward to insights from fellow WIS.

    Photos are blurry but it looks OK to me. Only the crown look weird
    It has R17.8 caliber

    The problem could be that it comes from India with high humidity and some parts look rusty:

    Yes an Omega, but distressed in many ways.
    Crown looks wrong

    Thak you for the replies.Yes, it is indeed from the India where majority of frankens/redials originate.

    I liked the elegant design but was apprehensive about the omega logo.

    I was under the impression that posting links aren't allowed hence refrained from posting the same.
