    Omega seamaster info

    Hello once again it seems I need much help with buying a watch, last one I was looking at I felt to uneasy about it so I don't jump on it but I'm now looking at this omega, does this look genuine to you guys? The guy says you open it from the front to get the movement out? Is this true? Here are some pics

    That dial looks pretty rough for a Seamaster! The case back looks a bit too heavily polished, I can't see the seamonster engraving.
    Yes, through the front access to works, and should run the cal. 1021.

    Cheers, Bob.

    Yes, it is Seamaster Cosmic 2000, 166.130, with cal 1012. Looks all right for me. Very good 70's watch, with accurate Lemania movement. Not all Cosmic 2000s had seamonster. As new a 100m water resistant. A special case by EPSA, opens from dial side. The glass gasget has gone beer color which indicates that it has not been serviced for awhile. Probs it needs a service, new glass and back gasget, so an official service needed. A new blue dial is still aviable (160€).

    Paint on dial isn't fading, it's flaking.
    Flaking paint on a dial usually means either poor re-finishing, or molto moisture ingress.
    The hour batons, at least ten of the twelve has awful flaking paintwork around them, I would say poor refinishing.
    I can see the seamonster on the case back when zoomed in, it looks a bit overpolished.

    ​caveat emptor.

    Common problem with these dials, Yeh I can maybe see something on the back when it zoomed in but can't confirm, don't no if can be replaced if not no problem looks pretty good for its age and great price
