    Questions about a specific Omega

    I'm very green to vintage watches, and I only know what I like visually. I was looking around for a certain style and discovered that I like the vintage Omega look...of course I do!! Anyway, I found one for around $300 on ebay that has been serviced by a shop in England, and I didn't know if the price was right or not... I found a few in the past that had sold for a similar price, but not sure if they are the same value since they look slightly different. I will do my best to provide more information, so please let me know what I haven't included here.

    edit: not looking to get a value or appraisal..I just want to make sure this watch is worth that price or if I should hunt around more and find one for cheaper. I love the look, but don't like overpaying for anything.

    Hi and welcome
    Glad you checked
    Pretty sure its a reworked dial and not well done either. Thats a good reason not to buy.
    I expect the movement is Omega OK
    Crown looks a replacement

    Regards
