    Its original, had confirmed with omega ,its a part of very small series of omega swiss collection.Below is the mail from omega to me.

    Hello Manish,

    According to our archives, this timepiece was produced during 1976 up to 78

    Yes you right, as Marco Richon said the dial should be original because as indicated "Ostrich" through our archives

    We don't possess any similar model to the one yours and if you wish to sell your watch to our Museum, we thank you very much for your kind offer towards the OMEGA Museum but we regret to inform you that, for the moment, we are not interested in buying this timepiece!

    We wish you a good day and hope if you come to Switzerland to enjoy visiting our Museum!

    Sincerely yours,



    PS: Unfortunately, we cannot know how many others OMEGA were from our Swiss Collection...

    Welcome here Manish. Have enjoyed your pictures of vintage omegas in the Purists especially your nice stainless steel pieces (like your railmaster trio).

    And Manish here may say he is a newbie but only in the sense that he is a new member to the forum - he is otherwise an old hand when it comes to vintage watches particularly vintage omegas.

    Cool piece, beautiful in a way, and really odd, looks like custom work for someone with a bit of gold fever...

    Maybe this guy?

    Is the dial made out of genuine Ostrich???

    Hi Manish,

    What a unique piece you have there. What is the movement? Cal 10XX I guess? Could you post a better movement picture?

    Greeting from Jakarta

    I'm going to take a guess, and say maybe Cal 712 since it lacks the center seconds hand and appears relatively flat, along with the old style rotor.

    Sorry for a few more questions. What is the size? Is it comfortable to wear? The buckle on the back looks like it would make it uncomfortable.
