    Hi all, I would greatly appreciate your help with verification of authenticity my papers and box for Speedmaster year 1991.
    I have just got a book Moonwatch and according to this "watch bible" (really awesome publication) I have found some incongruities...
    My international warranty card doesn't have pre-printed ( how it should be according to MWO) Ref. number and watch number. As you can see below on the first line is a stamp and then handwritten watch number..

    Also the box looks strange... I can't identify this box in the book. Dimensionally matches the classic "leather" box from 90' but the material is different.

    What you thing about that, please? Thank you very much for your advice and help!;)

    Both box and card look correct for a 1990s Omega. Many of the these cards were hand written so that isn't really a concern. That kind of box always deteriorates horribly and leaves red dust flakes everywhere, the card wallet too.

    I see no issue. I wish I knew the reasoning on why some watches are preprinted warranty cards and some are hand written. I’ve got a 3313 POC from 6 years ago with a handwritten one.
