    Default Black dial on vintage Seamaster - real or not?

    Hi all,
    So, after having read so many people's bad experiences with black-dialed Connies, I've become scared of all black-dialed Omegas! What do people think about this one? The "S" in the Seamaster looks like the old style font. Unfortunately the seller appears to be a bit of a newbie, and didn't know the caliber or case number (and doesn't know how to remove the back....). He's told me it is a bumper. Would love your opinions!

    It's a case reference 2757 with probably a caliber 355. The only other date at 6 bumper is a 353 usually found in a 2627, but that reference has more pronounced notches at the outside of the base of the lugs where they meet the case.

    I can't tell for sure if the dial is original from those pics but I'd lean towards saying yes. The fonts look okay, the seem to be printed with the correct color ink to match the markers & hands, and from what I can see of the minute/second track it's in good alignment.

    Default What to check for?

    Thanks. So when I do get to see the watch itself, what should I look for to confirm its originality?

    If you can get us better pictures with less glare (tough with a black dial) we can give you more info.

    looks okay to me. I am more concerned with the hour markers. They look off but everything else looks good. So I would think it is okay.
