    Hello, I am brand new to the forum and this is my first post. I have been a vintage watch collector for years and just purchased my first Omega. I was not looking for this watch but it was offered to me and I could not refuse. I am looking to verify its original as I don't know much about Omegas. I know the crown, chrono hand, mainspring and crystal were replaced as the watch came with the original parts. The watch is running slow so I need to have it serviced. Any idea what a fair price for a service on these would be?

    Any input is appreciated. Thanks! FullSizeRender-2.jpg

    I have the 145.020, spent $550 US a couple years ago but also repl. crystal and pushers.
    I would bet you $500 would be a good estimate.

    By the way, welcome and nice watch!
    The casino dial is neat.
    You may want to research a little, I think the gray dial should have the orange hands and it would really dress up your beauty!

    Yes. It seems to be the case that this dial combination is usually seen with the orange hour and minute hands.

    Thanks!
    Yes I agree the hands should be orange but I think the hands are original and are just faded. The second hand has a little orange left but the hour and minute hand are really faded. The Rolex Explorers with the orange hands fade the same way. I could be wrong but thats what I assumed when I bought the watch.
    How many of these are floating around? From what I have read they are not very common.
