    A little introduction since this is your first post and a little courtesy if you want people to help you would go a long way. Just saying...

    The marks come from using one piece braided nylon straps. They soak up perspiration which contains salts and moisture.
    Combined with the electrolytic activity generated by the human body, the sweaty strap acted as a great little corrosion enhancer.

    I don't think that's a scissors mark.

    More likely a precision tool that just slipped a bit.

    It depends. On "solid" gold (i.e.: 18K or higher), being a noble metal it is much more resistant to corrosion. The more alloys added reduce the ability to resist corrosion/tarnishing, but gold usually resists reasonably well.

    Solid gold will of course, be much more susceptible to actual mechanical or physical wear as it's much softer that alloyed gold or stainless steel.

    just to demonstrate my 18k yellow gold (dont want to crush the thread off topic).
    yes it is probably mechanical wear, since gold is softer. but i was observing such marks quite a few time, so i was wondering what it was.
    thanks again!

    You shouldn't buy this watch. Pretty much worth only it's parts. Don't buy any vintage Omega before you learned more about what to look for, or you just going to be wasting your money.
