How to spot Fake and Frankestein Omega? vintagewatchespt Views 60 Like 60 Likes Comments Comment Like if this guide is helpful Please sign in to like this Guide. Share 10 July 2014 The purpose of my guide is to let you learn with my experience, instead of making the same mistakes I purchasing my first Omegas. To make a long story short, I spend a lot time and money understanding the value of original items, the value of an old vintage watch working with its original pieces. Today, I collect Omega, and this guide as the goal to give beginners a couple of tips to understand how to properly choose a Vintage Omega - before 1975. My first Omega Watch was offered to me by my grandfather, in 1988. A beautiful gold Genève from the 1960s. I was 18 and loved Swatch, Hamilton and brand new watches, so I never wore that watch. In the late 90s I tried to wear it, but it didn’t work, it was completely dry. I went to a so called “specialist” that charged me 120 € - 150 $ - to clean it, change the glass and the original crown for a non branded one – never understood why he changed the crown. My second Omega was a 30T2, gold plated, very big, with 38 mm. Beautiful watch with a small problem: only the mechanism, dial and hands were actually Omega; the case was a stunning Cauny, the crown from a Certina……. There are far more watches than you think, and many seam perfect Omegas, including their case, dial, hands and mechanism, but were never designed or made by Omega. So, how to spot a fake or a Frankenstein Omega? Both fake or a Frankenstein Omega are bogus watches, but the main difference is the fake, or replica, will not use 100% original factory parts. They will use similar parts to the original ones, with different materials or design mistakes; they will use different movements: quartz instead of mechanics or a white label mechanical movement instead of the original one. A Frankenstein Omega is far worse because it uses 100% original factory parts to build a watch that was never designed by Omega. For instance, you can have a case from the 50’s with a movement of the 40’s. That’s when things get tricky. The only way to be 100% sure about what you are purchasing is to ask Omega. But there a couple of rules that a beginner should know about before buying a Vintage Omega: Mechanical movements The mechanical movements let the sweep second hand glide around the dial chapters, so if you see a sweep second hand that ticks every second is made with a quartz movement and a fake. Almost every watch before 1975 was mechanical, mining that the sweep second hand will glide around the dial, the Omega exception is the F300hz, in this case it’s an electronic movement and it will make a small buzz noise, instead of the usual tic tack. This is not a fake. But in the dial has to say F300hz. So, you should observe the sweep second hand and analyze the way it ticks, and if it does what is supposed to do, according to the movement that equipped the watch: mechanic or quartz Serial number and Caliber Never buy a watch without seeing and confirming if the serial numbers match. First you have to check if the serial number is stamped on the watch movement, this will tell you the production year and the caliber. Have a look:     Serial Number   Date 1,000,000   1894 2,000,000   1902 3,000,000   1906 4,000,000   1910 5,000,000   1915 6,000,000   1923 7,000,000   1920 8,000,000   1934 9,000,000   1926 10,000,000   1944 11,000,000   1947 12,000,000   1950 13,000,000   1952 14,000,000   1954 15,000,000   1956 16,000,000   1958 17,000,000   1959 18,000,000   1961 19,000,000   1962 20,000,000   1963 21,000,000   1964 22,000,000   1965 23,000,000   1966 24,000,000   1966 25,000,000   1967 26,000,000   1968 27,000,000   1968 28,000,000   1969 29,000,000   1969 30,000,000   1969 31,000,000   1969 32,000,000   1970 33,000,000   1971 34,000,000   1972 35,000,000   1972 36,000,000   1973 37,000,000   1973 38,000,000   1974 39,000,000   1975 omega-seamaster-aqua-terra-james-bond-review-rid-0.html. omega replicas suizas     Source: OMEGA - A Journey through Time - Marco Richon and Chuck Maddox website.

This way you can know if the watch has the proper date. Example: caliber 564 began production in 1966, the serial number is 25.728.669 with as the estimated production year: 1967, you can establish that they coincide! Caliber Color Another technique is to change parts of the caliber, especially, the bridges that have the serial number or caliber number, this way you can “make” and older or newer caliber to fit a case and sell it as an original. Normally you can check this because they age differently, and the parts colors are different. The first thing I do, after receiving a watch that I purchase, is to check if the color of the mechanism seems even. In my case, I prefer to sell separate part than to sell rebuild watch, because the value for the buyer is not the same. Case Reference Also, cases will indicate if they are the correct ones or not. Check the case number located inside the back case: This is how it works: data for case numbers goes back as far as 1946 and case numbers are still used in model present day Omega watches, you can see a digit case code number: Source: OMEGA - A Journey through Time - Marco Richon and Chuck Maddox website. So, if the case is 168.017, it means that: ·         1st Digit is a 1 – then it’s Gent's Watch ·         2st Digit is a 6 – then it’s Self-winding centre second ·         3st Digit is a 8 – then it’s Water-resistant chronometer with calendar Remember that these rules are not “bullet proof”, there are a lot of other things that can go wrong when buying a watch, so always do your research before spending the money. Swiss, US or Argentina Made During a period of time, third party companies manufacture and assemble certain components for Omega. Companies like JB Champion or Star Watch Co in US and Industria Argentina in South America. I believe it was made under Omega license, but I´m still checking thoroughly which to be 100% certain. This occur for many different reason like economy, taxes or demand and supply time. I would say that these watches are no Frankenstein, if they were made in agreement with Omega, but the fact is that they are not 100% Swiss Made, and for a purist Omega vintage collector the value isn´t the same as the one´s manufacture and assemble in Switzerland. This doesn´t mean that they are bad collectables, there is a proper marketplace for them. They are also part of Omega´s history together with the history of countries where they were assembled. If you have any doubt, please don’t hesitate; fill free to drop and email, and I will use the following tools to help: Omega Watches: A Journey through Time: written and designed by Marco Richon, former curator of the Omega Museum Omega Designs: Feast for the Eyes author Anton Kreuzer Omega Official Spare parts catalogue Omega Watches Brochures, Catalogues, Adverts & Owners manuals Different websites of collectors and sellers, including spare parts suppliers. That’s why I only buy with Ebay and Paypal; if it’s a fake or a Frankenstein, you have the buyer protection program. I hope this was helpful, please let me know, just tick below. Good luck.

The Omega Seamaster is an internationally renowned model of the Omega family. Originally manufactured in 1948, during a period regarded by AVW to be the company’s finest hour, stretching from the end of World War II to the early 1970s. The Omega Seamaster is currently the oldest line in the Omega collection, with the newer models having adorned the wrists of silver screen heroes from Pierce Brosman all the way through to Daniel Craig in James Bond films.

So why buy an Omega Seamaster vintage watch? What gives it such a durable appeal? Having supplied wristwatches to the British military since 1945, Omega were used to producing watches built to perform in hostile environments and it’s from this lineage that the Omega Seamaster was created.

At the time the concept of a waterproof watch was nothing new. Many other watch manufacturers, such as Rolex, had produced successful waterproof watches. However, with the Omega Marine in 1932 and the Omega Marine Standard in 1939, it was Omega that produced the first watches that would withstand the depths of diving. And it’s from this start that Omega went on to perfect the design of the rubber ‘O’ ring seal, to replace lead and shellac seals, that gave their successor, the Seamaster, the ability to withstand even greater pressure at extremes of temperature, carving out a niche for the Seamaster as the dive specialists’ watch.

In 1955 the diver Gordon McLean reached a depth of 62.5 metres in Australian waters while wearing an Omega Seamaster, providing the Seamaster with its first ever diving-record. And in 1957 when Omega introduced the Seamaster 300, with its simple but stylish black watch face, it was held in such high regard that not only did it become the choice of watch for the underwater expert Jacques-Yves Cousteau’s team, but also for military divers like the Special Boats Service.

Omega continued with this ability to diversify in response to the demands of the day when in 1962 they introduced the Seamaster 30 – the “30” referring to the size of the watches movement – to great popular demand. The first Seamaster 30 had a forty two hour power reserve and 17 jewel movement with the details of the black dial based on the W.W.W. (Wrist Watch Waterproof) watches used by the British armed forces.

Omega’s readiness to push the limits of endurance kept them at the top of the game. The greater the depths divers ventured to, the more Omega responded. In 1970 Omega produced the“Ploprof” (PLOngeur PROFessional or “professional diver” in English) Seamaster 600. Used extensively by the French underwater and research company COMEX in their test dives of the late 1960s. In September 1970, again in French waters, the Seamaster 600 was worn by the three divers of Janus II who spent four hours per day over a period of eight days, at depths of 253 metres, setting a world record for underwater exploration. And later still, Cousteau’s divers reached depths of 500 metres off the coast of Marseille while wearing the Seamaster 600

Omega took on board the results of the performance of their watches in such testing conditions and worked seriously to develop them accordingly. Nothing shows the endurance their watches were subjected to more than the words of an advert produced at the time: ‘ In pressure tanks the watches are subjected to the equivalent of a leap from the bottom of the sea to twice the height of Mt. Everest; and this leap is repeated for hours on end.’

An adventurer’s watch, over the years, the vintage Omega Seamaster has rightfully established itself as a worthy lifestyle symbol.
