I am new to this forum and Omega Vintage watch. i have recently acquired a 1952 omega, bumper matic cal. 351 vintage. But i am not very sure if it is genuine. Or entirely genuine. I suspect some of its parts are genuine but some are not. My questions are:
1) which parts are not and is it worth it to change it back to an original?
2) is it advisable to use the watch as a daily watch?
3) how often should i service it?

Thank you all for helping me out. Please find the photos attached below View attachment 30772 View attachment 30773 View attachment 30774 View attachment 30775 View attachment 30776

1. Those luminous "dots" don't look to be original. They were probably added by a previous owner. I'm uneasy about the crown, someone else will likely speak more to the authenticity of the watch. Do you have movement and inside caseback photos?

2. As a daily wearer? Sure it is.

3. Have it serviced immediately, and then again every couple years.

Looks genuine, the crown looks like it's from a Constellation. Lume dots have been added, but it looks like an original black dial.
