Post by namor » Tue Jul 06, 2021 6:16 pm

Being sold as a military issued 300 - does it look correct?

See the lume marks the minute mark behind each lume mark should not be there we call them Stubbies . So a fake dial. Avoid it. The crown is also wrong.

Good reading on fakes Maybe this one should be put into scuba watch hall of shame. From refresher course of fake Omega 300 from link the 9 and 6 with closed loops another sign of a fake dial. They normally have a gap.

A new fake dial out read this at the Omega forum here is the link for more info on fakes. Be careful and do your home work if you don't have a lot of experience with vintage.

Another "too good to be true" looking case. Mike's looks rounded from two lifetimes of use. This one looks new by comparison.
