    I can't tell from the caseback pic but, if it is a Seamaster, the caseback should so indicate. I suppose it would be more like some of the Constellations based on the dial and what I can see from the case.

    The Calibre 1348 movement is an early 80's Omega created movement. It appears to have IC upgrades over the 1346.

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    what do you mean upgrades it says the calibre is 1346 and the productionnumber says its from 1977 but does this effect the pricing of the watch?

    Looks more like an eight than a six in your pic...are you sure it reads 1346?

    It is not a 1346 according to the component layout. And I do see an "8" too...
