Any idea what this is? I bought it in a bar in Horta on the island of Faial in early 1984. I'd smashed the crystal on my Submariner and needed something for the voyage on to the Med. This said Omega and the price was cheap.

It looks like it is in terrible condition but it keeps very good time. It didn't have a strap when I bought it so I had a local shop put one on the following morning.

I've done nothing to it ever since. I wear it very occasionally and it sits in my safe for months at a time without being wound. I'm really shocked very time I wind it up and it works.

The dial is about 25mm diameter.

I'd really like to know what it is (or might be) and when it was made?
