I am pretty new to looking for watches on ebay, but have been watching a few auctions lately. I am thinking about getting an Omega Speedmaster (assuming I can get the wife to let me) and so have been watching the prices on ebay for a while.
I have seen a few of these now, where the Speedmaster has a Seamaster case back, and yet the seller claims that the case back is original.
I am really not up on all the things to watch out for with Omegas yet (or watches in general really) but am trying to learn. I am just wondering if this type of thing is a warning sign that the watch is pieced together from several others or what.
I don't plan on buying or bidding on this watch, just looking for info at this point.
thanks in advance.
