Is this fake? De Ville or am I being trolled?

I feel like I'm being trolled... I ordered this from a private seller in the UK. His communication and the price feels a bit off, but I'm not sure about this watch...

I'd be grateful if anyone comment? Looks OK, but maybe it's a redial? The strap is certainly a replacement... I just don't know much about Omegas.

Thanks a lot for getting back to me, I really appreciate it 馃檹馃檹馃檹

What does the inside look like - both the movement and the inside case back.
It's not fake, nothing is wrong with this watch, except dial looks damaged at the top.
Many late-70s & 80s dressy Omega models can look a bit cheap. This one looks par for the course.
@cb1111 & @mrv & @Gumby992 鈥 thank you. I鈥檒l have a look at the inside for sure. I wonder though, why is the back case plain and not with the De Ville stamp on the back (like below, pic of a diff watch from Chrono24)? Should I read into that? Thanks again

Yes, they cranked out tons of these and some may, or may not have markings on the outside of the caseback. Most rectangular casebacks had no markings.
this is absolutly fine. look i also got the 1332 movement. very similar model (Tip: check on youtube how this mechanism works!) trust me it's important.
and dont worry about the backcase it is like that.

Some of the quartz dress watches in that era are not stamped to reduce the thickness and (maybe) to lower the cost.
