    Definitely a redial, which I assume you were implying.

    Don't get me wrong this is fugly but isn't it interesting how poor redialing was a common practice and accepted by many as an improvement 60 to 70 yrs ago. Today's watch wearing fraternity is so much more discerning and I guess far removed from a generation who on the whole wore a watch for it's functionality and not neccesiraly for the perfection of the case polish or the quality of decoration applied to the movement etc.

    Well, in this case they were sick of their Omega, & decided to change to Zenith at time of redial. Very thrifty.

    Though I'm not sure any of it was Omega, either.

    What’s that logo on the caseback?

    I thought it was an Omega seamonster, but it doesn't look right. I don't recall the six notches in that position on an Omega, either.

    This is so much more than a bad redial! Zenith hands and movement with what looks like an Omega dial and case back. Funny part is the dial says 30 jewels but movement has 17 jewels.:confused: What a clusterf@*k!:rolleyes:

    For the low starting bid of $150 U.S. you could be the proud owner of a Zenmega!!!:p

    When I first looked at the back, I thought it looked like someone had tried to copy the Omega logo. I never really paid attention to the details but I guess it’s an Omega back. A SeaNith or a ZenMaster perhaps

    Y'all are a tough, cynical bunch...…...Can't you see it's a Prototype from a joint-venture?
