HELP!!! Is this Omega Gen or Rep?

Recommended Posts

tim2827

I bought this from eBay, a seller from Japan. He guaranteed it is gen. Upon arrival, I checked and I believed it is rep. Any help from expertise to give your views is much appreciated so that I can initiate returns if not gen.

Thanks in advance

I'm guessing fake based on the simple fact that the caseback says Muslum instead of Museum.

Also movement decoration and typings are very low quality . Omega logo seems very weird not like actual logo of omega( maybe vintage have that type , not sure about that) 

ebay is safe you can ask for refund

I hope you haven't lost too much money. It's worth about $20 just for the comedy value.

That decorated plate is a different colour to the rest of the movement!

It looks very suspicious, I’m gonna say it’s definitely a rep or MAYBE franken? How much did you pay if you don’t mind sharing?

HahahHa yes yes
In the original ebay auction listing, the photo were a little blur on that side of the case so I thought it was “museum”

Hey at least you can get a good laugh out of the situation and it seems that you will be able to get your money back from paypal.

Other than what others said, I don't think that combination of dial and case even existed...

Look like its a very poor copy of a 1970's Seamaster 600 or similar.  I wouldn't be too fooled by the logo as a weird logo is pretty normal for a watch of that age.

Its seems to be fraken of serveral reps the caseback with this misspelling is  should be for a 1945 officer chronograph remade in 2003 so a weird one
