    It's a terrifically crude fake.

    Wow, will the seller pay you to take it off his hands? I would be shocked if there were a legitimate Omega part in that thing.

    It could well have an Omega pocket watch movement inside but even then not of any real value

    I know an African prince who needs $3K wired to him and, as a thank you for helping him, will share a portion of his multi-million dollar fortune.

    PM me for details.

    They all belong to the same conglomerate of watch makers, kind like Swatch Group. :cautious:

    Moreover having an Afrika Korps watch is not really funny. Why not the SS if you go this way.

    I've always thought the same thing, I realise there are people that collect it but Nazi military memorabilia is not the sort of thing I'd even want in my home let alone on my wrist in public.

    There are much better moments in human history to celebrate in a watch, like the Apollo moon landings for example.
