    Hi there. N00b here, I just joined as suggested by /r/Watches, as someone had mentioned omegaforums might just be the ultimate authority for vintage Seamasters.

    I'm on the hunt for my 1st vintage Omega, and browsing the internetz, I came across this:

    Could anyone here comment whether it's a franken/redial or an original piece, and preferably identify it and/or similar watches?

    Thank you :)

    These are images that have been edited in Instagram, or something else to make the watch look better than it is.

    You came here asking for help, so here's some for free:

    Before you go out looking to buy a watch, do some research, then some more research, and then a little bit more research.

    Find out everything you can about the particular model of watch you'd like to buy, to the point where you can identify a good, or a bad one.

    There are a lot of people here, with a ton of knowledge, and they got it through research... asking them to vet shitty pictures of a watch which you appear to have put no effort into identifying, or checking out yourself... just not cool.

    I am sorry if I broke a rule or more. I did the best I could to my abilities, but my knowledge of vintage Omegas is highly limited, and I am able to recognize/identify only a couple of more known models. This being something out of that range (most likely 1950s), I hoped I could find some help.

    My apologies once more, I will definitely read the required reading :)
