    While 150 euros isn't an unfair price, I guess I would ask what you would you do with it? It has no value as a parts watch and it's not worth restoring because it's low quality all around. If you can stand the case the way it looks now, I guess you could just wear it as is until it breaks. But I'd have a hard time investing the price of a service/repair and case restoration for a watch like this one.

    I don't see the Omega logos, sorry.

    It looks like someone added little metal plates that say Omega. One on the dial right over incabloc and one on the bridge.

    It looks like it was a swell watch. I am probably the only one who likes the look of worn gold plated cases (as long as not too worn). This is worn to perfection because looks like the case still has its shape.

    Only you can decide. It's not worth it to me because the watch is not desirable. I would rather pay more for a better chronograph. But it's probably a fair price for what it is.
