Can someone tell me the calibre and is the dial original?
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...
In answer to your two part question:
The Omega logo is a dead giveaway..
can someone tell what are the marks on the caseback are? do they come from wearing on a NATO?
i find simmilar markings on a recently purchased watch.
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.
Not to forget the idiot ( can’t say retard anymore ) with a pair of scissors that tried to open it without the right tool.
so one can expect such marks on solid gold as well as on ss case?
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.
This is my first pose, so i dont know how i works. I like to introduce myself, i am 50 years old and i Living in Denmark. My interestatal for watches go Way back, but i are now more into vintage watches, specialy omegas. I am looking to but the Watch, but i am not sure it is original dial. I could realy need your input. Best regard Lars
You have already gotten several replies
Its a redial.
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.
