    10:30 is about when the date begins to change, so not likely to be an issue, but not a bad idea to check.

    I have the same opinion. I've seen this before, but on other watches. I'll wait for seller's response. Any known issues for watches coming from Phillippines?

    The latest feedback of the seller should give you caution. Frankly the condition of the watch doesn't warrant that extra risk.

    I read the negative feedback on seller. May be a case of ebay newbie. Photo of inside caseback should have been a red flag (VI.66) is bogus & lettering on Rolex dial is not quite right. I have no further opinion, I'm undecided on the Omega. From the Omega photos are there any apparent or not so apparent issues? :unsure:

    I myself would not act on #1 as I travel often to the Philippines and there is enough moisture there to choke out a water snake. The discolor of the dial I submit is not just patina but rather the same grudge that attacks all metels and electronics there.
