    Crazy expensive, especially considering the refinished dial.

    Sorry for my naiveity, but what gives it away that it's been refinished?

    Placement of SWISS MADE (should be lower on the dial) also shouldn't have Ts since the dial has no luminous, imprecise printing of the minute track.

    I'm actually pretty sure this is a ref 166.0174 which is a Geneve not a Seamaster, so in addition to having a refinished dial I think the case back has been swapped.

    One other note is that 90-95% of blue and black dialed 50s, 60s and 70s Omegas offered for sale these days did not originally come in those colors.

    Too expensive and with an abundance of warning signs. Move on from this example,
