    I was hoping I could get some advice on the link below. From what I can tell the case is correct due to the notches at 3 and 9, the hands appear to be correct and the crystal.

    After that it gets kind of fuzzy for an inexperienced eye. I feel maybe the dial is too clean and the bezel as well.

    What are your thoughts,

    Thank you

    The movement is correct - although the triangle design on the case back needs explaining. The dial looks legit but I think the hands and indices have been relumed. The bezel is in outstanding condition - suspiciously outstanding - however the aftermarket bezels out there are obviously fake, so I am unsure on this one you show us.

    Others might know more.

    Regards.

    I now believe it’s a fake, there are 120 dents on the bezel, and it should be 144, 12 between each marker. Bezel is 100% after market and the seahorse is etched too deep.

    Is soo hard to find one original that’s not roached.

    The search continues.

    Thanks for your take on this watch.

    144 sounds weird...means that wouldn't align with the minute marks.....

    This is what was told to me by a member of another forum. But after reviewing this to the fake omega 120 kit, it’s clearley a fake.

    How about this one, the seller said he bought it from Jack Wong’s collection and says it’s 100% original.

    Looking at the period advert - the manual wind 120 should have a white date disk. Far right hand image.
