    Opinions would be appreciated on this military Omega.

    I'm fairly convinced it is a redial, the Omega logo, wording and arrow seem too close to each other to be original. Font looks a little off as well.

    However the lume seems to have a nice aging to it, possibly a early 60-70s relume?

    Thanks in advance!

    Dial seem to be ok for me. I think hands are not original. And of course lume on them were relumed.
    Good luck

    That dial is as dizzy as a one eyed Rooster.

    I do see that the symmetry of the dial is off. Might just be the angle of the shot, I will report back once I see the watch in person

    Went to inspect the watch in person today. A few things jumped out on the dial.

    The E in Omega was not centered under the logo. Arrow seems too close to the word Omega as well. Finally the lume at 6 o'clock was offcenter to the subsecond marker.

    Seems to be a redial despite the auction house expert's reassurances. Appreciate all the input offered!
