    can't say much from the pics... but the Omega looks a lot like a vintage Heuer 1000.

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Haven't seen one before. Looks like Swiss 15J movement from the 1920s maybe. Fairly small calibre.

    That looks like a good if not great quality movement, the Swiss didn't go to 17 jewels until fairly late. Beveled teeth on the winding wheels, a sign of quality.

    Speculation: A WW1 improvisation to make a military wristwatch.
