    The plating on the lugs looks to be wearing a little thin if that bothers you.
    I won’t pretend to know anything more on this reference so please wait for others to comment.

    Are you interested in this watch because you really like it or because it seems inexpensive?

    Thanks for responses, I don’t like overtly ‘fancy’ watches, fairly practical nature so nor do I always discard wear items before doing things, so a cheap quality daily i wouldn’t cry over seems a good choice, this was cheap enough to buy but in the end I stopped bidding at £225 simply because I had niggles about the stated non-return policy and limited knowledge if this was fake or (as read on this thread) cobbled together from different Omega components, thus at best unreliable.

    Still, there will be others and has encouraged me to read more of the pitfalls.
    Thanks again.

    Welcome to OF. Kindly post photos, not just links in future posts (or post pics of this watch if you can). Links quickly become useless, along with all the good info from the replies

    How 'bout a 2254.50? I'll bet it's more than you'd like to spend but IMHO there's no better "every day beater".

    Thanks to those who sent links for available daily watches, have been riverside in rural Norfolk the last several days so unable to respond.
    Unfortunately UK customs & taxes would add circa 30%+ to any USA purchases, not expecting to be in USA(WV) anytime soon therefore will need to buy locally (UK),
    thanks anyway guys!

    Your profile image: wouldn't be a keystone by any chance?
