    is this green dial for real? It's been around forever -- unquestionably overpriced--but I do find it quite beautiful.

    Interestingly, no shot of the inside caseback posted - out of 12 pictures.

    Hour hand should knock the price down a bit.

    I'd need to see the model reference on the caseback, other than that it looks OK, but horrendously over the $ limit.

    The green dial for the US market is also unusual, but probably believable.

    other than a very rare chronostop, I've only seen green omegas hailing from Mumbai, Manilla and Seoul...

    unless they're hiding a franken, which is still possible, sometime folks have trouble taking a clean pic of an old omega inside caseback as the machine marks shimmer so brightly in almost all angles...has happened to me too. :)

    If its the same watch, the owner joined the forum (@kjrpat) and tried to post it for sale here with out playing by the rules. Obviously he didn't get very far. There's another thread about it somewhere, but I can't find it
