    Ciao Guiseppe,
    if my Italian was better I could fully understand your introduction :)
    The caseback though looks fine for the Mk 2.

    Ciao Giuseppe!
    First of all congrats for your new entry... it has superb conditions.
    Then, about the caseback... It's not the only one I've seen... It seems that for a few number of 145.014 Omega had used the 145.034 case backs... A sort of switch between the two references.

    As I've said many times previously, what people here refer to as the reference or case number, is in reality only a partial case number, so the confusion continues. The numeric portion of the case number only tells you the style of the case, not the material. The material is determined by the letter prefix to the case number (bolded for clarity). The 145034 (1450034 with current numbering) comes in three different materials as shown below.

    055BA1450034 | CASE 18CT.2N YEL.GOLD CAL.0861

    055MD1450034 | YEL. PLAT. CASE CAL. 861

    055ST1450034 | STEEL CASE CAL.0861

    Clearly the case back shown, being made of stainless steel, is not for the solid gold watch...

    Cheers, Al

    it is all clear, in fact the mark Gold 861, there are two types of bottoms, as seen on the net, I just wanted to see if my mark II may be corrected to have the case back as photos

    Solid gold will have a solid gold case back. Gold plated will have a stainless steel case back. When you say "gold Mk. II" you don't specify if you are referring to the plated version or the solid gold piece - this is why I said the stainless steel back is clearly not for the 18k solid gold watch...

    I think maybe by mistake could have mounted the bottom of a gold mark, it would make the piece unique :)

    If you are referring to the solid gold version, yes it would be a mistake and a franken.
