    Default Looking to get opinions on whether this watch is genuine or a franken watch

    Hi All,

    I am looking to purchase a vintage Omega, the tresor has caught my eye, especially the cal. 267.

    I have found the below and was just looking for opinions on whether this is genuine or a franken watch?

    Images attached, any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks

    Judging by the small photos, the watch doesn't look fake to me. BUT....

    That apparently damaged case rim doesn't instill much confidence in me. Even the tiniest of gaps where the two halves come together can allow water vapor to get in and start rusting away.

    Here's a link to a better photo of that Omega 267 movement over on the Ranfft site.

    Thanks all! I have done loads of research and agree that the watch doesn't look fake, some parts may have been replaced, the damaged case rim is an issue so I might have to steer clear. I can see why the price is down at circa £200.
