    Here are some quick observations, many of which may be mistaken:

    1. Reference number on case back is not clear in the photo and to me appears to have been modified somehow.
    2. I can't see the caliber number on the movement, which should be a 565. I'm not an expert enough to tell without seeing.
    3. The side of the case does not appear to have the indicative notch at the 3 and 9 position. See the link below.
    4. Dial seems clearly redialed to me.
    5. No lume dot on the bezel.
    6. Dial and hands appear re-lumed.
    7. Crystal is a mess.
    8. Description says case diameter is 41mm when it should be 37mm. Could be a mistake.

    Thanks for the info and the link. Very helpful for furture shopping. The more I looked I did think the Omega and Automatic font looked a bit off. Also, the seller has no feedback, which seems to be a red flag as well.

    The seller has zero sales in the last 12 months and ALL of the previous sales showing in the system are women's clothing. :cautious:
    Looks more like the seller account was hijacked. I wouldn't touch this one.

    The pictures are terrible but I actually think the watch is fine and genuine. It's the seller/feedback that's the issue.
