Good day!

My friend and I are looking for any information on this watch. I think it might be Waltham? Difficult to say... Any info will be greatly appreciated!

It looks like a Swiss Omega to me, but that is not my expertise.
I will move this to the European section for better identification.

The plate layout does resemble a Waltham 1888 a bit, but it's not a Waltham.
The damaskeening pattern is very typical of Swiss movements.
To me the most interesting feature is the homespun doodle on the dial. Although it's not unusual to see a Sacred Heart, they're usually a bit more subtle. I've never before seen one that is completely obliterating the original branding.
