Never saw one like this. Looks original. What do you think? Redial or legit?
Looks like a redial to me, I don't like the font.
Can’t see any serif on the font
I cannot imagine that it isn't a redial.
Yes. I agree. But the second picture made me think it could be original. The text and minute markers looks to be fading. My explanation was this can only be done by time.
I think it is due to less-than perfect application.
The overall condition of the item with the slightly moisture damaged hands, polished case and wrong crown doesn't gel with a perfect dial, especially since it is in a colour tone I have never seen on a vintage Omega.
My first scale model car was a Lamborghini Countach which I tried putting together and painting at age 11 or so. The metallic blue colour I chose for it was quite similar to this dial
You have a few of the jumbos, right? Could you do a font comparison?
First: Thats not a reference that I'm familiar with but if you look at the "A" in "Automatic":
Here are other ones from OF:
From this comparison alone there should be no doubt that this is a redial
(unless there are other 168.001 dial models I didn't find; as stated I'm not familiar with this reference )
Maybe I wanted to believe this was a one of a kind funky japanese blue dial connie...
Yes. They are different I'm afraid.
I stumbled on this on eBay yesterday, had to smile to myself and think fondly of this thread
