    Hello all,

    Been a while since I've asked for identification help, but I was hoping you may have some advice on the watch below. Unfortunately the photographs aren't great and the seller cannot open the movement.

    My question is, have you seen a similar dial configuration before? The watch is a jumbo 37/38mm and looks to have the original crown, correct hands, and nice case. Does the subseconds dial look right to you all?

    Subdial and "OMEGA" text look wrong.

    Look at the "G" in OMEGA and how the high points are black.

    I believe the original black dials are reverse printed (black over gold) and would not show as such. (I have one).

    If I am wrong, please let me know, I may have missed out on a lot of great black dials!

    Don't like the sub-seconds dial. Typically just 12 tick marks on these.

    Dang, that's too bad. I've always wanted one with a black dial and the jumbo size here really got my attention. Not a bad redial...

    I'd like to object to that... That subdial looks awful!

    Something looks off. Omega vintages don't look like this. Seems like a pocket watch with a bad redial. IWC suffers from this on eBay too.

    its only horrible to watch nerds. Literally, no one will ever know or care (except if you wear it to a GTG)

    if you like the looks of it and it isn't priced as a collectible, i would say go for it.

    be very mindful of the price though. it will be extremely hard to flip. (impossible here)
