    I'm sorry, but counterfeiters are getting so dang good that they can even fool experts during a cursory examination. I say the real truth now lies in the movement.

    That's not a popular model to try and counterfeit, so if I were to guess, I'd say it's real.
    (1) A few good big clear photos of the movement (if it is mechanical) may help in its identity. If it is a quartz movement, don't bother!
    BETTER STILL:
    Take it to a jeweler. Watch counterfeiters won't use real diamonds....they're not cost effective.
    Even better: find a real watchmaker. He open the watch up, examine the movement, and then can tell you if the watch is real or not.

    If you don't have the time to do all that, the only thing I can say is "How well do you trust the seller?" And if you're not happy, can you get a refund?

    What CometHunter said! It's the movement that will confirm whether or not that watch is an authentic Omega.
