Won this watch as part of an online auction but I cant find any info on it. The pics are from the auction and I will have some better shots once it arrives. I cant find anything on it. Is it even real?

Those photos are truly terrible, so I wouldn't want to make any firm conclusions. But I don't see any obvious problems, and the blurry case-back photo indicates that it is stainless steel (not "stainless steel back"), so that's a good sign that it's better than the usual diver-style watch from the 1970s.

They came off the auction site. The people taking the pics are sometimes great and sometimes not. Its shopgoodwill so you never know.

Theres no case marking on the dial besides the brand name (no 333 or 666) and i cant find a example with the same bezel so its a bit frustrating to figure out.

My guess is the bezel was originally black and red and the red has completely faded which I think is cool. It's kind of a plain dial for a Caravelle divers so I thought maybe a replaced movement but I did find one other example of a diver with that dial and an 11DP 7j movement (that sold for a fair chunk of change.) They are simple to work on so it should be easy to get up and running!

I just found that same diver on ebay. That's great really- its somewhat unique and very cool that it is manual wind. thanks for your assistance. I will try to find more model info as it does not have 333 or 666 so maybe its more of a fashion diver?

I think it is a fashion diver, the back says Water Resistant. Hard to tell from your auction photos but it looks like yours says the same.
It'll certainly be a unique one to wear.
