    Is it everything ok?

    Not too bad looking.
    The side(s) seems to have had some polish: I think it highly unlikely to have a watch this age, with this pristine side-pattern, if you like.
    Also, that 'pattern' doesn't follow the curve of the case.
    Not too bad, but if you want 'original'.....

    The rotor has a very different color compared to the rest of the cal. Not only that, it looks like a nasty yellow of some sorts...?

    Rest looks rather legit at first glance. So it all comes down to price :whistling:
    Wait for the others to give their opinion.

    Mine for comparison of the side (including scratch)

    Your picture clearly explains what do you mean when you say that " 'pattern' doesn't follow the curve of the case ".

    Why has the rotor a very different color (yellow?) compared to the rest of the calibre, in your opinion?
    Perhaps the washing machine and cleaning products?

    Thank you.

    Might be. Might also be a rotor from another watch.
    In general, collectors do not like that a lot.

    Well they certainly exist , though not common . The crystal was offered as an added option or replacement by Omega in the 60's and early 70's, both in date and date+day option.

    I'm not an expert on these…for me it looks good. But it's not my taste :)

    I agree that the case has probably seen a lapping machine sometime in the recent past, the lug thickness doesn't look uniform. The rotor definitely came from a different movement.
