Today I purchased a Seamaster 300M profeesional.
The watch was bought from an authorized dealer listed online. He provided me with warranty card, chronometer and ico cards with matching serial numbers
I am writing because my brother has this same watch and the watch that I just acquired varies in a few ways.
First on the back of the casing on top of the seamaster animal engraving and the waves around it there is an additional engraving of an omega logo enclosed in a small globe. This engraving is located on the rim that is outside the waves. My brother's watch does not have such an engraving and I have not been able to locate a watch that does on the web.
Second the 825 engraving on the bracelet is located on the middle of the bracelet, while on my brother's it is located on right side of the bracelet and the engraving is much smaller
Third the waves on my watch due not stick out nearly as much as on my brother's watch
Fourth, there seems to be a scratch all around the wave engraving on the rear casing.
Fifth on the bracelet links close the clasp my watch has the following engraving GAG while his has JAI.
As well my bracelet links have arrows close to the casing while his has arrows close to the clasp.
Finally the watch's serial number are located very close to each other but not exactly in the same place.
Could you please inform whether the watch that I enquired is authentic.
