    Recently saw this Omega ref. 2505. Need a little help

    Hey everyone,

    I recently found this Omega Jumbo ref.2505 cal 266 on eBay. I really like it because of its blued hands and clean dial but I was unable to see other similar examples online and am worried about the authenticity of this watch. Is it genuine? Is it a redial? Is it a frankenstein watch?

    Apologies if I am posting in the wrong thread, I've only recently joined the watchuseek forum.

    I'd appreciate any help I can get.

    The watch in question is titled and its description is in Italian.

    "Omega Oversize Jumbo Dual Tone Silver Dial Ref.2505 Cal. 266 (30t2,265,267,269)" on eBay and its description is in Italian.

    If this is the watch you are referring to, I would say that most likely it has been re-dialed and that the hands are replacements.

    I would lean towards redial as well. The photos are crap but the alignment of the letters in “Omega” seem to be off. Additional I did not see “Swiss” or “Swiss made” on the bottom of the dial which I would assume should be there(might not be on this ref though).
    Addition the case is in rough shape.

    I would suggest holding out, saving a bit more and waiting until one in much better condition comes along.
