: This is the watch with the caliber I posted in
: the previous message, have you guys seen
: this before? Is this watch genuine?
I'd be somewhat suspicious that it might be a fake. Though I do not believe I have enough info from that one photo to make a sufficiently definitive analysis of it.
Reasons for suspicion: use of the vintage OMEGA logo on a 1980's style watch *and* hands too short--OMEGA is normally very precise about the second hand reaching the dial markings.
I find it worrisome that it has a peculiar dent at the yellow dial edge at the 13 minute mark. How the heck do you dent something UNDER the crystal? How has that watch been handled that that would have happened? So that alone would make me avoid buying it, even if I thought it was genuine.
