    Could this be an Omega?

    I am looking to your collective thoughts on whether the circled watch is an Omega. Again, apologies for the grainy, low quality photo. I got it from an estate sale company rep. It will be for sale this weekend, but before I make the effort to pursue I would like to try to confirm it is an Omega. Any other observations are welcome (model, approx. year, etc.)

    Thanks chaps

    Hard to say what it is. The Omega font is applied, and it doesn't look like a Constellation, so - most likely - it's a Seamaster De Ville.

    Thanks mkws. The crown looks like a possible aftermarket one, but I am no Omega expert.

    Oceankid...this certainly looks like an Omega to me...the crown seems OK, as well. These fine watches can & do show up in the most unexpected of places: I've snagged several over the years from out-of-the-way spots...! Good find...grab it. Michael.

    Here it is. They are asking $300, but I have offered $250. I don't know if this watch is solid gold or plated. Does this box look original to the watch?

    'Does this box look original to the watch?'

    Perhaps. The instructions manual looks strange, perhaps it's an 'one manual fits all' version...

    I was hoping it was a Patek...

    Great piece to me worth the asking price, great with a vintage box and instruction manual both look like from the 70s era, 1972 on the back my birth year. On a very good quality leather band it will make a good watch to wear.
