    Hi Everyone,
    I’m new to the watch scene and was looking to purchase an old omega pocket watch that has been converted to a wrist watch. I was wondering if someone might be able to authenticate/identify it, as I have honestly no idea what I’m looking at.

    Thanks in advanced for the help!

    Here are the photos the seller provided below:

    An old pocket watch movement badly in need of a service with a fanciful re-dialed face stuffed in a Chinese made case.

    Forget it and start learning, there are some good conversions around, but you need to know what they are and what they're worth.

    Out of Eastern Europe? Typical. Suggest you don’t buy it. Known in the vernacular as a “Frankenwatch”.
