    I am going to buy a vintage Omega Seamaster cal 501. It is 17 jewels unadjusted movement (writen on the movement). Is it authenthic piece? I need some advises before make a decision whether I should buy it or not. And here are some pictures of the watch.... Thank you 2018-10-02 19.26.27.jpg 2018-10-02 19.11.49.jpg

    Redialed so I wouldn't personally touch it. Movement is very dirty too.

    The dial is really bad, you should stay away from this watch.

    Movement is a frankenwatch, too. Put together from at least two other watches.

    Cal. 501 is a 19 or 20 jewel movement.

    Cal. 500 is the 17 jewel version.

    Run away from this dog with fleas.

    It's good that at least you posed your questions BEFORE buying the watch, unlike the poor soul who bought this yesterday and asked for questions AFTER:
