    Opinion on "new old stock' and fit for Seamaster 30

    The case back on my Seamaster 30 is pretty scratched up. Rather than buff it out I would prefer a NOS back. I found this one on fleabay Vintage RARE Omega Seamaster 30 Model No 135 007 Case Back | eBay but I question the "NOS" part given some of the apparent scratching. Is the ~$150 appropriate for an actual NOS Omega case back?

    I can't vouch for it being NOS, obviously, but I suspect that it has some minor storage related marks. It happens. As to the price, everything is only worth what someone - you - will pay for it. It seems high to me; I think you could get your existing back refinished successfully by someone with skill and a suitably gentle touch. I know such people in my area, you may not have such contacts and so on.

    A few observations on that item: 1) This seller has many positive feedbacks on prior sales of NOS watch parts; 2) The item is listed as "or best offer", so you can get him to sell it for less than the asking price; 3) just two weeks ago the same seller sold a similar (maybe identical?) case back for $26 in an auction.
