I believe it is a fake. The name 'Omega' is never written like that. There are probably a few other issues but that caught my eye immediately.
Which omega are you referring to? The one on the dial? Because all omegas have that same fontI believe it is a fake. The name 'Omega' is never written like that. There are probably a few other issues but that caught my eye immediately.
Look closely. Each of those letters are joined together. Omega doesn't do that.
This is from omega website. Letters are joined together. I don’t mean to be argumentative I’m sure you know what you’re talking about. I just don’t see that as a solid thing to go off of to discount it’s authenticity
Im a rookie when it comes to watches so i don’t actually have the tools to access the back. But I’ll get back to you on that. I’ll order a kit online and open it up.Judging the watch by its font won't work. I found the letters connected over on Onega's own website as well, so we need other ways to do this. If you can just unscrew the back cover and show us the movement, that'd be great!
The serial number you mentioned in your first thread is engraved on the movement, not the watch's exterior.
Besides- counterfeiters have gotten so good at what they do , we have given up on depending solely on a watch's outside details to determine authenticity!
Ordered the opening kit. Will have it open tomorrow and upload a picture of the movementSome of my fellow WTF'ers will probably shudder, but I unscrewed my first case-back using a pair of basic needle nose pliers. My second watch was unscrewed with a small ball of duct tape (sticky side out).
Well first off. It didn’t come with box and papers and I didn’t see a serial number in the back. I only bought it because it was still functioning and because of the weight and quality. Just feels authentic. Paid $150. Old man runs the shop and he doesn’t really know what he’s got lol. But he does know the brand and i think that’s where his price tag came from.I'm not an expert on Omegas that is for sure, but i only checked the used watches on a few websites and didn't see the name done like that. As CometHunter suggests, the best way to confirm is to view the movement and markings on the inside of the case back. I'm curious now though. When you mentioned you got it "for cheap", just how low was the advertised price that made you question the authenticity?
Lol! Now idk if i want to be showing it off. I mean yea, no one is going to want to pry it open to make sure it’s legit, but i was hopeful 😅What the hell. Wear it anyway and everyone will think you own an Omega.
