    Hello everyone,
    It's my first time on the omega forums and was hoping to gain some insight into this watch i viewed on ebay which i couldn't successfully negotiate for on ebay and was eventually sold :(

    The watch is apparently 38.5mm in diameter which would be ideal, as I have only seen similar vintage Seamaster's in 35mm.

    Any help or advice would be appreciated.
    Regards

    Thanks for the reply !
    I couldn't find it there, maybe it's one of the pictureless ones?

    They certainly do look like the one in the listing but none are 38.5, is it just me or 35mm crosses the line on being too small.
    I am a bit of a novice when it comes down to hunting watches, but where would i go about finding someone selling this.
    Regards

    Also, is there a likelihood that the pictured seamaster isn't legitimate?

    Size is relative to HOW the case is measured and if the crown is included in the measurement. The watch in question is likely 35-mm when measured directly across NOT including the crown.

    I also suspect the dial has been refinished in "re-sale" blue.

    Sunbursts can be a redial? Text and printed markings sure, but the actual dial?

    Compare the colour of the date window with the colour of the hour indices. If there is a difference in colour the dial might be repainted

    35mm is certainly wearable - even 34mm - but it depends on the case and how the watch wears. They're not the hulking great behemoths that are more fashionable these days but then ... those things aren't a vintage Seamaster.

    You need to try on a few vintage watches to get a feel for them and what you think you prefer.

    Honestly doubt that crown accounts for 3.5mm, there was a great emphasis on the 38.5 but not exclusively mentioned that this is the case without the crown. Praying a 38.5mm model exists so i can hunt it down.!

    I know this is an extremely vague observation, but the watch does not look like a 35mm with relation to the arm in the picture.
