    Hi everyone newbie here. Has anyone ever seen an Omega Constellation like this? It has a 1330 movement. I'm trying to find out if it is a franken watch. The band is made in Mexico and it's genuine calf. The backing plate is 10 kt gold filled. Don't know if it works, It needs a battery. Is this watch worth repairing and cleaning if it doesn't work. Any suggestions where to send if it needs repair. The crown has a push button. Thank you. IMG_0422 (2).JPG IMG_0425.JPG IMG_0429.JPG IMG_0428.JPG IMG_0436.JPG IMG_0427.JPG

    I don't know much about these old quartz movements, but doesn't look like a franken to me.

    Looks like an original early 1980's watch. If all it needs is a battery, then that's cheap enough.

    If anything else is wrong, probably not worth the money to fix unless it's very simple. My understanding is that it's easier to swap out the movements in these than to diagnose electrical issues.
