    Omega Experts, Friends and Neighbours,

    I'm a newbie to this wonderful and informative site. I have a question needing a knowledgeable answer. What exactly do I have here? From my quick research before buying (I see the mistake there), this seemed to check out. Now I am thinking I may have purchased a Frankenstein*. Does anyone have some information for me?

    *It's pronounced Franken-steen!

    So it would appear to be a bit of a confection. The movement pre-dates the case by about 15 years and is not of the correct calibre. You should be able to get most, if not all of your money back for the movement.

    Ha, came with plastic Crystal that spins in place and that comes of when winding the crown. Gains 3 seconds per minute. The movement and dial and case all different from different models. It was a mess. eBay refunded my money to the dismay of the seller. According to him, if it says Omega somewhere, it's an Omega. Some peope just don't know Frankensteens exist or are not original. It was a joke.
