    It is an Omega Calibre 625, a thin 17 jeweled winder. A good reliable watch made in the '70s.

    The caseback indicates it is a 20 micron thick gold plating... unless it is white gold, this caseback went to another watch.

    The band is not original.

    If they are claiming it is New Old Stock, they are not telling the truth. But it looks to be a nice example... Factor in an additional $100 into the price for a service.

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!
