    Makes sense to split them. Normally I’d think together is better... but a 600k+ omega auction?

    I think they will see more money seperate... also if the watches are from multiple owners how do they split up the results?

    SS Rolex flooding auctions ? Who should have thought.... perfect storm for people wanting to sell not quite vintage pieces.

    But a watch that was made in September 1964 was pre-sold in May 1964? ::confused2::

    *Granted, I have received a extract with an error from the Omega Museum once. It said that my 145.022-69 was made in 1971 which was impossible according to serial number and 220 bezel and they sent my a corrected extract with the correct 1970 production date.

    well, I'm ever skeptical of box and papers... so very likely added for the sale

    All fields filled in correctly. Slightly suspicious in itself!

    Indeed strange, but this isn’t the first time Phillips managed to get a „special“ extract isn’t it?

    I‘m not sure if it is okay to post screencaps of Phillips description, but in essence they say that this is plausible because omega notes the „sale date“ only when they received the money, so the delay is explained by that .... what?! Sale date?! It says production date clearly on the extract ... since when is the extract date a „this day we received the money from the vendor and marked it as sold“ date ... someone?!

    That’s interesting. Is that information in the Omega records or is it like the Ultraman chrono hand ...........???

    (Oh no don’t go there!!!!)

    That dial on that watch looks like it's been around the block a few times and seems to be pretty seriously knackered. Also there is a piece missing out of the rehaut?

    It's defiantly not right. There is tons of blank paperwork readily available

    Not only that blank papers are plentiful, their explanation is outright wrong.
    If this was true, it would nullify every extract issued by omega so far, as we all expect that it‘s a Production date and not a Sale date of any kind.
