Default Vintage Omega, need identification please!

Ok, I have this vintage Omega Hand-winding dress watch, appears to be from the 60’s or 70s.

The case appears to be solid gold except for the case back which is simply marked “Waterproof. No model number on case back at all. Perhaps someone sold the case back for the gold content and kept the watch?

There does appear to be some residual lume on the hands, so I don’t think this was was pre-1960’s, but I could be wrong.
Movement is dead in the water, and the crystal is cracked at the top.
Anyone have any idea what model this is, and if it is worth restoring, and where to do that at?

Can't help you with the ID. But IMO, any watch that has a movement that pretty and a pedigree like Omega pre-Swatch is worth putting some money into...

Don't know much about these, other than they look stunning Chaz !

But wow, definitely looks worth restoring !
Also looks like Tin broke the code, and figured it out !

Found a similar looking version for you that doesn't have the same
mix of markers, and numbers on the dial. But it looks kind of close,
and gives the same reference number, and movement as Tin's Omega
link up above...

Look up your serial # here.
It will give you the year of manufacture.
