    Hallo,

    i found this watch, and it somehow appeals to me. i tried to look for those, but could not find much information on OF.
    It should be like the first Automatic Movement from ~1945.
    i like this type of dial. not sure if one could find one without spots. Also hard to say how those spots look in person.

    The seller says the watch keeps good time and that it has an untouched dial.
    To me the logo looks original, but i am no expert. The case looks very clean and sharp.
    As far as i understand it is not a that common movement, so servicing this one is probably not so easy?

    Price is 590,- EUR but maybe negotiable a little bit.

    What is your opinion on this one?
    Thank you!

    I have no expertise with the 2375 ref. The watch is attractive but I do have a few concerns. In the fifth photo, the only one that is more or less a straight on shot of the dial, the logo looks to be slightly out of alignment with the 12. This could be a result of the camera angle. Secondly, all of the examples I've seen also have leaf hands, but the minute hand on this example goes well past the railroad track. Are the hands replacements? Finally, I'm not sure but it appears as if the underside of the upper lugs has been subjected to a grinder. I hope others with more knowledge will chime in, since this ref and cal would be a wonderful find.

    @dstern, thank you for the opinion!
    i was thinking that maybe the OMEGA logo is original, but the markers and the numbers on the dial are repainted. If i look at the "8" its a bit sketchy, but as i said, i am no expert. i guess, even it it is a redial, then its an attractive one.
    true, the lugs do look somehow grinded.

    The logo on this was printed not applied, so could not be original if this is a redial.

    Perhaps if you note in the title of the listing that the watch is a ref. 2375 it will help attract some additional commentators.

    That is because the watch is not perfectly straight in that picture.

    At least the minutes hand is a replacement. The rest could be originals. Hard to tell.

    Possible, but polished out for the most part. Not terrible. Again, hard to tell without the watch in hand.

    The numerals are raised, so it would be simple to repaint or re-gild them without affecting the rest of the dial.

    The movement looks to be in pretty good condition. The dial and case seem to match in condition. Good, but not mint.

    I'd like to see the price a little lower, but I realize that European prices for mid-range vintage Omegas are simply higher than the market in the USA.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    I never said that i was applied. I meant, that i think the dial is original except the numbers on the dial are painted over. But as i said its only my opinion.
