    Omega watch real or fake?

    Hi,

    I have an Omega ladies watch and I am trying to determine if it is real or a fake. The face of the watch indicates it is an Omega Costelletion 21 prix. It has 26 stones (diamonds?) around the face of the watch. The back of the watch is stamped with the word Omega and the omega symbol within a triangle. It also indicates it is 18k 0.750 and that it is Swiss made.

    Can any one assist with this inquiry?

    Photos would be very helpful: dial, caseback-outer, caseback-inner, and movement.

    Hi Elisa,

    not worth the effort to make photos. It is a fake, absolutely free of any value.

    Omega never has the number of jewels mentioned on the dial, and the Omega
    signature and gold hallmark are always inside the back.

    Be sure that the gold hallmark on the back is not the only true detail of the
    watch, and that it is not made of gold. Even the gold plating is very thin.

    Regards, Roland Ranfft

    Here are some photos. I'm having trouble opening the back panel, so I can't get any photos of that. This is as clear as I can get it.

    Ronald is a true expert and I would defer to his judgment.

    hello elisa
    as was stated earlier, roland is your man, i too have seen one of these watches and they are very definately fake, the one i saw had a very lowly movement, although it was fully jewelled.

    sorry, john.

    Hi -

    Roland is absolutely, absolutely correct.

    The first thing that should make you doubt the watch's heritage is the misspelled "Constellation".

    Looks like a fairly vintage fake, probably from the 1970s, to me. Modern fakes are much, much better.

    As Roland said: fake and worthless.

    There are several 1970s Soviet watches that could be used to create such a watch.

    Confused Re: Omega watch real or fake?

    Hi Roland,

    I have a similar question regarding a Omega De Ville Vintage watch that I traded. Attached are three pics that show details of the watch.
    I would be very happy if some of you experts could give me their opinion ...
    Thanks
