    Other than it's probably from Fulton Watch Co/Gustave Homberger of Biel, and I may have tried for it if I'd seen it, i can't tell you anything more than I like it!

    Hi!

    Congrats, it´s a very nice watch for a bargain price. I think it´s "one of those" WWII or later cases.
    Best regards, Mike

    You can expect a nice movement inside. 17 jewels.

    Could it have been made for the Swedish Armed Forces when they built it up during WW2?
    Omega was one of the suppliers, and the Dial design was very similar (bulls eye dial).

    Omega produced the Suveran and Officer models for the Swedish Governement but not all of the Suveran and Officer have bullseye dials. Bullseye is not synonymous of militar.

    And the chance is, that if you remove the crystal ( plastic) you will find that the crystal is very yellowed, and the dial looks much, much better than you think!
