    No one is saying it's a fake . I have an issue with the dial and the dezel being 100% original ...it looks in Almost prefect condition. Can Gemini 4 shine some light on this for us .
    Thanks in advance
    Steve

    If you don't want to do eBay, run through a major auction house. They would love to have it.

    Fair enough, but I would say that a post that solicits a valuation would probably be better received if it didn't simply end in "what's it worth?". How about a polite "thanks for your time" or the like?

    Thanks Steve, I am not being funny about it, it's just some people have been a bit rude to be honest, I genuinely don't know what it's worth because they vary so much with virtually no knowing why, unless you know what you are talking about. I also inherited a manual wind moon watch and a gold pie pan constellation.

    Yes, you are correct, I probably didn't word it as I should. No offence was meant.

    I see an issue with the dial, the 6 is closed, should be open, looks great part from that, mismatched green dial lume/mustard hands, looks right for the period imo.
    What is the issue with the bezel? Looks like a type C produced around 1967, surely ok for a 1969/1970 watch?

    You are correct with regards to the bezel type .. my point was it look it prefect condition, Bakelite was renowned for cracking on these watches I haven't see one that hasn't got slight damage that's all .... my main concern is the dial the closed 6.

    thanks for the info. If you zoom right in on the 6, it is open, it's just really close

    thank you Kev

    I won't comment on the Speedy....

    The Connie's dial has been redone but I'm sure it is a fond momento of your father - hope you enjoy wearing it

    The dial I would say is a later replacement, probably at a 1970 MoD service, although still looks off to me. At the same time the MOD re-engraved your watch case-back & replaced the crown

    Here's a close serial numbered watch with original dial & unmodified niada crown & case-back(no A) the dial font is a lot different

    Where are you in the world?
    If in the UK, go and see Bonhams or Phillips.
    I suspect they will consign it at £20-£30k with a £20k reserve and the market would then decide

    Sorry didn't realise that was addressed to my post
    The fonts are not correct
    Note the pointy As
    Lack of serifs
    The minute ticks are too short
    A neat job but still a redial

    I don't do Seamasters so won't comment on your watch (others better qualified can offer a critique if they care to)

    I do however do Connies and whilst there are minor variations over the years, Omega aren't renowned for making 'mistakes' on their flagship watches

    the dial should look something like this

    I was trying to offer gentle advice to the OP (which BTW he thanked me for privately and confirmed that the dial had been redone by his father)
    I hope this question is put to bed now......

    Agree, without doubt, redial.
