    I have two questions regarding the Extract of the Archives.

    1. In 2012 I got an Extract Certificate for my 2001 Speedmaster Professional purchased second hand without paperwork. I got a lovely hand signed certificate in a presentation folder.

    In 2020 is all you get for what is a high fee for the service an electronic print at home document?

    2. I have purchased second hand a Speedmaster Automatic Date.

    Calibre 1155 (ETA 7750) 17 Jewel

    2 x case numbers
    1750043 & 3750043

    Serial number on the watch back
    5363 8035

    But I cannot find a number on the movement.

    Should I be concerned ...? Frankenwatch? It’s clear these weren’t Omega’s best work but it’s a beautiful watch but I need to know I have something worth keeping and it’s a genuine Omega. I’d like to get an Extract but can I without a movement number?

    I really need opinions from people who know and particularly people who know the history of Omega from the late 80’s and early 90’s.

    It appears to be, but it doesn’t have to remain that way. I would not want to intentionally exclude half of the world’s population from participating in the conversation.

    Several reduced Speedmasters don't have numbers on the movement. The 53,xxx,xxx number and the case numbers will provide the EOA if you choose to request one.

    And you do get a miserable scrap of card to accompany the digital extract, not comparable to the previous certificate in my opinion.

    Serial number:53638035
    Article ref: 37111060

    This should have a gilt (yellow) dial...

    The subdials and indices are gilt, perhaps that’s what is being referred to?
