    hi all. I recently obtained a omega cal=471 1955ish case ref 2790, -11sc. in working order , and very pleased with it . may question is, that the back of the watch has hippocampus , logo . has this been etched on at a later time period or is it pukka, as it should be. I have tried to google, but found no data. I hope some one can help. many thanks ....peter................ ps, photos are not so good due to lighting

    I think it's legit.

    Found one with the same engraving.

    Had to search for 2790-11, not all Ref. 2790 have this engraving.
