    The only choices here are fake dial or a poorly done redial.

    If you're not sure where to put the "300", better to just leave it out. :)

    Crown and Caliber doesn't seem to mind selling fake watches, especially Seamaster 300s. They sold a similarly fake 166.024 on eBay about a year and a half ago.

    It's either a problem with integrity or competence.

    It's kinda ironic, I'm listening to The Grey Nato podcast right now where they are interviewing Hamilton Powell of Crown and Caliber...

    @TNTwatch , are you certain that late 2913 references, such as this 2913-8, were not issued with 2nd generation movements (550 caliber 17 jewel USA or 552 caliber 24 jewel worldwide) 14755 movements?

    What a joke company, just read their spiel here about how it is "Crown & Caliber Certified Authentic" and about how they have a 45 point authentication process.

    https://www.crownandcaliber.com/authentication-process

    That watch has enough problems to send many red flags flying. :thumbsdown:

    It's hard to say, but either way, it's very crooked behavior, and they should not be making the type of authenticity claims that they do.

    I'm certain of that, but others with more experience and knowledge will have more to say about it.

    These different movements have different dimensions and require different dials and different cases. I don't think it's just a simple thing of switching movement.

    Hi all,
    I'm not sure how to start a thread,
    But I have a question I recently bought an omega in bad condition I think it's fake but I only gave a few euro for it.
    Can you guys please tell me if its fake?

    EDIT: blurry pictures of obvious fake removed.

    At the top right of the Vintage Board there's a button that reads "Post New Thread". Before you do that, read this and pay particular attention to point 1: https://omegaforums.net/threads/vintage-omega-posting-guide.383/

    @robbmorton That's not just fake but very fake.

    Look at the 007 logos on the dial, the caseback, the clasp and the second hand - it doesn't resemble the actual 007 logo at all.

    Also, the "00000" / 1007

    Also the "TM Danjaq" on the clasp, which doesn't appear on the genuine one
