    Hi, i saw this advertisement for this vintage omega on Chrono24 and i'm contemplating to buy it. Photos are below.

    I did a movement check and the date checks out as the watch's listing.
    According to seller, lumes in the hands & glass were replaced.
    It is being sold for 700EUR.

    Its my first luxury watch & i was hoping if you guys would be able to share some thoughts:
    1. if this would be a reasonable purchase
    2. if its a genuine Omega

    Thanks in advance for the tips guys!

    Always assume every black dial is redone and work back from there. Look at the applied logo - you see where it's not located where the old one was? G is off on Omega ... I didn't look any further. It was a genuine Omega, once upon a time. It still isn't a fake but it's not as it left the factory.

    Man. And i was starting to like it. :(

    I was looking at this other watch but i guess the "A" in the automatic & Omega logo is off as well?

    Anything that i may have missed out? Are there reputable & decent sellers on Chrono24?

    The seller in you second post sells a huge amount of poorly refurbished watches that have knackered movements and poorly refinished dials.

    Can't say I have either but there's a huge range of dials/furniture with vintage omega and I'd not call one "wrong" just because I've not seen it before.

    My pet peeve is sellers who won't post a simple, straight, head on photo of the dial. If everything is from an "artistic" angle, I assume they're trying to hide something. Like here ... I am tempted to go find a ruler to see if "CALENDAR" is actually straight.

    When will these guys switch to a lume color that doesn't resemble mushed peas?
