    Hello all - I'm a new member to these forums but I've been lurking around for a bit now. I'm always impressed to see the knowledge and feedback given out by the members here, and I'm hoping to get some help.

    Like many of the readers who visit these forums, I'm looking to buy my first vintage Omega - but I'm aware of the common problems out there (i.e. franken-watches, redials, etc.). I'm a little hesitant to buy something off eBay for this reason, but I came across this item that I'm interested in.

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/162604653314

    I was told it's a reference 166.070. Doing some research, I'm a little unsure if it's totally legit. One thing I noticed is the "T-Swiss Made-T" is above the second markers and the overwhelming number of 166.070 references I saw had this writing below. Not sure if that matters or if they made models both ways, but things like that are making me a little hesitant.

    I'd appreciate any input from the members here.

    Over priced by about two times.

    "case, bezel and lugs are completely free of scratches", because its seen a buffing wheel, should have much sharper edges.
