    What kind of watch is this?

    I found this watch going through some of my dad's old stuff. I'm not sure exactly what it is but i thought it was pretty cool looking and wanted to know if anyone could tell me anything about it. I know its probably nothing special, possibly worthless but still want to know what it is. It doesn't say a whole lot except that it is Quartz, assembled in the USA from Swiss parts, and the face either says Desciora or Descora. Can't really tell because the second hand stopped over it. Any info is greatly appreciated.

    Name doesn't sound familiar. Please post clearer, brighter and bigger pictures of the dial side and back. My first impression is it's a quartz dress watch from the 1980's.

    Looks like an omega constellation bred with a rado diastar and they had one baby.

    Name still does not look at all familiar to me. Have the battery replaced and enjoy a watch that belonged to your dad. Welcome to WUS!

    not really sure if it would be worth investing in a new battery to move the seconds hand so we can tell what make it is probably worth it to see what the 'nipple ' by the crown does

    Probably date setting. Useless feature popular in Asia.
