    Can anyone help me ID this Seamaster as to the possible year(s) of production? In particular the year(s) Omega used these (fonts?) for the numbers and the red pointed second hand?
    Sorry, I’m a newbie to Omega and vintage watches...
    Thank you!

    While some of the older members might soon jump in and point out that this is a pretty horrible redial or worse, I'd like to congratulate you on your instincts - numerals and seconds hand is a complete fantasy and has no place on an Omega. A little research and studying and you'll be finding great specimens in no time :)

    I will venture the opinion that this is a total fake, case and all. Can't see very much of it but the lower lug looks clumsily brazed on, the crown isn't like one I've ever seen (I'm ready to be proved wrong here!) and the pie pan Seamaster dial with that style of numerals is 100% fantasy.

    Actually those numerals do exist on genuine Seamaster dials.

    They certainly do - I used to own one like that - but not on pie pan dials. Unless that's not actually a pie pan but has been painted to look like one...can't tell from that photo. A horror, whatever it is.

    Can you tell me what date(s) Omega used those style numerals? That is what I’m really curious about?
    Thank you!
