    I always think to myself " who buys these overpolished Omegas from Japenese resellers", those who list like 200 watches at once, all with the pictures in the same angle, etc.. well, today I Took a bite myself

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/252789168868

    Couldnt resist given the rare reference and the nice pink tone. This will be my first Seamaster Chronometre from this period and my first RG caliber :) other than the shiny shiny case, what do you think? I would like to hear your expert advice.

    Cheers

    Does it have the RG regulator?
    I'm always suspicious of what's not photographed

    Expert advice.

    Japanese people don't like to be referered to as Japs. It's an racial insult

    Second as pitpro stated. If the picture of a main part is not shown. Makes me wonder why. The regulator is a main part of the movement. Second to the rotor

    Hi Pitpro,

    Thanks to your advice I was able to request a picture of the regulator just to be sure, the last thing I want is to be charged 300€ in customs fees only to find out the watch has been modified.

    Here is the pic, seems to be a good one, thanks for your input mate

    That's what you want to see, the RG regulator.
    Movement has nice matching metal pieces and
    looks very nice (as in kept a good seal)
    I don't see any circular scratching on the caseback
    or the rotor so the rotor looks to be in good shape
    and the movement probably not too worn.
    121 serial is right in the correct range for these Chronometers.
    It's a beautiful piece. Enoy, these are special, mate.
    You should be able to regulate this watch to within a few
    seconds a day.
