can I get some help?
Some nice clear photos would help.
can you see the pics I posted?
We sure can. I believe we will have a lot to say about this watch
i would be very grateful
Crikey... 2998(-4/5) with a 105.003 caseback and crystal/rehaut?
@Darcy, your watch is very valuable but has so incorrect components. As we sometimes have scammers come here with only stolen pics. Could you please post a pic of the watch set to 4:40?
Well this is going to be fun.
So do you want to keep or sell?
If you want to sell, you just walked into a monkey whorehouse with a box full of bananas...
And the same if you want to keep
I will do that I just need to nip home and get it, give me about 30 minutes or so
Oy, you just put an image in my head that I wish you hadn't.
(If u can get through the first 25s)
Cant stop laughing
Of all the pictures I've seen online I never saw one with the back was without engraving, my father was a very interesting man he may have even one time worked for Omega but nobody really knows...his history is and will remain a mystery. I do know he spent considerable time in Switzerland and Germany but his heritage is English
The watch is a Omega Speedmaster 2998-5 with what appears to be an excellent dial, hands and bezel. The caseback (105.004-64) is incorrect as it is from a later watch. Of less importance, the bracelet is incorrect for the watch and has 2 different kinds of end links. It is quite a find!
Edit: circa 1962
Are you saying it is a 105.004 but the case back shows 105.003?
The 1962 makes sense I spoke with his wife and she thought he bought it in 1962
