Hi Members! I have been reading the forum for some time and joined recently. I have acquired my first vintage Omega and I would love to read any thoughts, information, impressions, or anything at all you have to say about it. I hope I'm not speaking too soon, but I have appreciated the advice and knowledge of forum members particularly in the "fakes" areas of the forum, because I believe (I hope, I hope, I hope) I've properly evaluated this watch to be genuine and in fantastic shape (maybe a redial, I'm not certain on this, thoughts?). So here's the story: Last week I popped into a clock and watch shop I had never visited before. It is the kind of place you couldn't purchase a new luxury watch but, for guys like us, was filled with character and nostalgia. A very kind lady asked me if she could help me with anything and I thanked her and told her I was just getting acquainted with the shop. She asked me if there was anything in particular I was interested in. Making small talk and expecting to leave the shop in a couple minutes, I told her I love vintage Omega Seamaster watches, but that I had never actually handled one in person. To my surprise she responded, "Oh, you mean like this one?" The owner of the shop got in touch with me later and we had a great conversation. He made me a good deal since he could see how excited I was about it and he was happy that I wasn't just trying to turn it around and make a quick buck. I'm still learning about the watch, but the case back shows reference number 165007 and the movement is a caliber 710. It keeps great time. The shop owner told me that he bought it from a friend who is an avid collector. The things that make me believe it is genuine are the markings on the case back, the quality/appearance/markings on the movement, and the style of the dial and case corresponding to the 21XXXXXX series serial number on the movement. The things that make me a little wary (but not enough not to love it) are the unusually outstanding condition of the entire timepiece, the printed rather than applied Omega symbol, and the fact that so far I'm having trouble finding a picture online of this exact model looking exactly like this. Anyway, I hope you enjoyed the story and the images, and I'd love to read your replies. Cheers.
