I found this mid grade Hunting case 15 jewel private label watch in a American made case.
I believe it is Swiss, and I am guessing it's an Omega. Can anyone confirm that
it's an Omega, or let me know what you think it is? It works well, but does
need a cleaning. I have seen on this Forum other PL Hyman Berg & Co Chicago
watches some of them American made and others Swiss.

That definitely looks like an Omega movement to me- the little enclosing arm curving around the larger winding wheel seems diagnostic for earlier Omega pocketwatch movements. Just my two cents.
