    Help with 1954 Omega Seamaster

    Hello all. Am very new to vintage Omegas, everything I kinda know so far is really just based on reading forums etc. Any help is appreciated 🙂

    I've been trying to get my hands on a vintage Omega Seamaster and was just offered this particular piece by a local seller.

    He is asking for approximately $770USD.
    According to him, watch is from 1954. Recently serviced and everything is original.

    Below are information seller provided:
    Original and Authentic Sunburst Tritium Dial
    Original Indexes, Crown & Hands
    T SWISS MADE T Dial
    Omega Bumper 354 automatic
    Reference: 2767-6SC
    Unpolished Case

    Base on my very limited knowledge that I've gathered so far, I came to a few conclusions on my own but will appreciate if someone experienced may help me out here.
    - Watch seems original & authentic
    - Wordings on dial seems original, with the right logo, "A"s & "O"s.
    - Crown and case seems as described
    - Movement seems to be as described

    If anyone thinks otherwise, please do help to point out 🙂

    Here are some of my concerns though.
    - "T SWISS MADE T" dial seems to be only available after 1960s, which means this piece from 1954 should not have such printing on its dial. Is there a possibility of this? Maybe it's a service dial, is that possible? Or was this dial completely re-done/refinished?
    - I tried searching for this particular Reference number but can't seem to find this dial on any images.

    I guess my main concern here is just how original is this particular piece and even if it's possibily a Frankenwatch, should I pick it up for $770USD given that it was recently serviced?

    Any advice is greatly appreciated!!

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi,

    I stopped reading after "everything is original" because everything is NOT original like repainted dial and wrong crown

    Oh damn. Lol.. Glad you pointed out, I clearly have no idea how to spot them.

    One of the tips would be lume: it is marked as Tritium dial, yet has zero lume on it

    Was going to point out the dial on this watch, esp the S in seamaster looks wrong.

    Re-dial, as mentioned above. Also, I have a feeling that the lugs are over-polished, although the photos seem designed to hide them.

    Also has a hole in the side of the case by the crown, so to me it's a movement only
