    A Ukrainian 0mega (as opposed to a real Omega) by the look of it.

    Omega, put together in Ukrainian ateliers, high probably original Omega movement which started in a pocket watch, re-cased and re-dialed in populist terms. Not to get in trouble as mentioned they switch the letter ' O ' in Omega with the digit zero '0' while advertising.Case would be huge min. 46-48 mm without crown if not bigger.

    It seems that they did some adjustments on bottom and top plate as well.They also shortened a balance cock by using one from another watch.It probably want be wrong to presume that there are some other parts that were used from some other movements to make this one.So basically,this is brand new movement,with diameter of 40 mm or less,made out of pw movement with much larger diameter.This seems like an entirely new form of eastern watchmaking.

    It is a multi-partner marriage. The dial design, seconds hand alignment, blue coloring that looks like it was done with a marking pen and imprecisely stamped Omega name on the movement are all warning signs.
