Got a vintage omega constellation here, real or fake?
It is real but with a refinished dial.
How can you tell the dial is refinished?
Because it is not original, so it is refinished.
Look a a few thousand and you can tell.
The fonts, or printing is incorrect.
I get what youre saying, but how can you tell it is not original?
Is this one real or fake (sorry, not entirely sure what I'm looking for)
What I just posted is very real and very original.
Thanks, as a general rule is the font on the dial always like the one pictured? And is the font on the one I posted *always* a redial?
Look at the minute markers on the first one how inside the crisp line they are compared to the second one.
Look at the spacing between the letters on the two watches.
Look at each of the words AUTOMATIC
Don't need to look beyond the Ns in Constellation.

The second photo from @X350 XJR print it out and put it next to the computer and whenever looking for a constellation use it as a benchmark for what is correct. You will be picking redials in no time.
The movement on the watch in question looks correct as does the case. It's just the dial that's a problem.
I think we're done here.
Here's my 14900 62SC
It would be fascinating to see just exactly how the redial person does that printing. With this one, it's clearly off, but the person had to be doing their damndest to get this on there!
My thoughts exactly. They've gone to a great deal of effort, but not attempted to get the font for AUTOMATIC or the logotype for Constellation correct. If you can custom print at this quality and size then you should be able to get the details right. Mind you this might just be my designers OCD rearing its ugly head...
