    Hello new members...

    Welcome to the OmegaForums.net!!

    I have specifically created this thread just for the newbies who come on here after they have been given a watch buy their uncle's uncle twice removed OR they have bought what you think is a legit Omega off good old flee bay!

    The idea is you post your watch here and it is discussed by our panel of experts, who I might add, may say few choice words like ::censored:: and ::censored:: or maybe ::censored::.

    The will endeavour to be as blunt as possible, but getting you the answer you are looking for.

    The main idea is this..

    It will remove the countless new threads asking 'Is my watch fake?' or 'I was left this by my dad's dad's dad from 1860'

    Any new threads will be merged in to this one as of now.

    Thanks very much.

    The OF Management & Moderation Department.

    Fire away!!

    I think this particular watch has been discussed before.., just finished looking at the listing and aside
    from being the first one made..I believe the seconds hand belongs to the Casino model, and yet you can
    clearly see the crystal with the "Quantum" etching on it..Also valve should not be at 10 marker.
    GLWS !

    I sent the seller a ebay message asking how he weas so lucky to acquire #1. Here is his response. I may have to jump all over this, what an amazing find. ::facepalm1::

    New message from: edisplay (93[​IMG])
    Was a gift to my brother in law who worked for a diplomat in the West Indies. For showing superb work ethic he was awarded this as a gift. He wasn t aware of it s value as he thought its just a regular watch. I wasn t aware of its value myself. Thanks for letting me know.

    lol, great story. I bet his brother is a jerk lawyer from saudi arabia that I keep getting emails from, saying that I won $1 billion and that all I have to do is send him few $K for paper work... Or maybe he was the lawyer who found my long lost cousin somehwere in the middle of nowhere and he also left me a fortune. I am so lucky.

    My nephew came to visit from Sweden and I gave him a f300 constellation chronometer with waffle dial, so if you see a new member asking about the value of above watch let me know ☺
