I am guessing a bit here:
I think looking at the style that this is a 1970's, maybe late 1970's vintage. It would not be a high end Omega, and it could be a fake. I the dial looks very odd to me.
Is it an automatic? Who knows, there is no movement shown, I would guess it is an automatic or a quartz, you would know better than us - does it start when why shake it or wear it - if so = Automatic.
Crack it open and share a photo or two and you will be able to get a lot more information. You can also get a ton of information at the Vintage Omega Database
I would take it to a jeweler or a watch maker and have them remove the back. Take a photo and post - people will tell you right away what the watch is and when it was made by the s/n on the movement.
Looking at the VODB - I think I have found the watch.
OMEGA Watches: Vintage Watches Database
1967 model - Ladies Watch - leather strap.
Manual Wind Watch - not an automatic
This is all just an educated guess, Omega has dozens of faces, shapes and styles, I think this one looks pretty close. Once you crack open the back you will be able to see the movement - you should see the Omega Symbol and a number under it, that will tell you for sure what the movement it.
It is a pretty basic watch, nice piece, but not worth all that much - maybe $300 - $400 on ebay, but who knows.
Not 100% sure, but it sure looks like a pretty close match.
Have fun with it.
The watch works perfectly well, I wound it up and it's going no problem.

I can see the number beginning with 511 is the important one.
I think this must be it - OMEGA Watches: Vintage Watches Database
Just a little later than your post but the same range by the looks of it.
I cannot read the numbers. The long number is clearly the s/n - that will date the watch. If it starts with 511 - then the watch is a bit older - 1989 - which to me is too new.
Have a jeweler take a look at it, they will tell you exactly what you have. The movement does not look like a 485 - perhaps others can assist a bit more.
Ah that's great.
I got the watch as part of a purchase on Ebay, was 'random' lot of bits and bobs, the watches weren't even really shown (I was more interested in a pad).
Got it all for £5 including postage!, The watch and other bits I didn't really want were all stuck in a draw and that's where it's stayed for the last few years until I found it again last night and got curious.
I might look into getting the watch serviced.
Nice clean and new strap and give it to my wife as a gift.
