    Hi all! Im new to Omega and I've recently acquired a Speedmaster Professional from my partner, however she bought it from Osaka, Japan, in a store called Bic Camera at a pretty good price. It came with the moon watch box, its accessories and booklets. Comparing to pictures online of other Speedmaster everything seems fine , including the movement.

    However theres no international warranty applied to the watch. Both an international warranty card and pictogram card were provided detailing only the ref # and watch #. Attached below

    My concern is if its a genuine Omega Speedmaster I have received? And should she trust Bic-Camera to sell an authentic Omega product for future?

    Thanks for your patience and help!

    Welcome along!

    There's nothing hugely obvious screaming out here.

    It looks like this is a "grey market" watch.

    That's where an Authorised dealer is looking to get rid of stock, they sell it on/have it sold by a non Authorised dealer, who sells it to you, but with no warranty/identification of which dealer originally had it as stock (they would have put a stamp for their store on there).

    Cheers

    Chris

    Bic Camera is a store that sells watches and electronic,s. Bit like a duty free for tourists. It's legit and you owe her big time. :thumbsdown:

    ( and never tell your girl you were here questioning it being fake ) Just tell her you were showing the other SPEEDMASTER owners...

    I know that store well. They sell authentic watches just with their own warranty which isnt factory.
