    I think it's original, quality just looks too good for a fake
    The question is if 3010 bracelet and 511 endlinks is a correct combo, let's hope someone will chime in with a table or smth
    Chaos is my focus

    Bracelet looks ok (even tho I cannot really tell if the beads are polished as they should). End links are correct too, there are actually quite a few of them that fit the 3010 bracelet, it all depends on which case they are going to be used. Also, 3010 bracelet is the modern replacement of the 1036, 1502, 1040 etc (again, quite a few ref for this same bracelet). I may add that yours is missing at least 3 extra links. Cannot remember how many were on it in first place.

    So the consensus is that itís a genuine, Omega made replacement. However, itís not vintage or NoS.

    I think you can tell for yourself that it's clearly not NOS. Scratches, scuffs, and dings are obvious.

    I worded that wrong. I just meant that itís genuine omega, but not vintage.

    Correct, genuine but came as a replacement from Omega for the old 5 rows BOR bracelets. Even ofrei had them for sale.

    I might add that is still a desirable item but you might want to take into consideration the overall conditions, the missing extra links and the fact that the end links are quite knackered (bent tips?)

    No doubt. The story is that I just obtained an all original 1959 Seamaster from a friend. After, he mentioned that he had bought a BoR bracelet for it, but he had to bend the end links back otherwise they stick out from behind the very slim lugs.

    He said if he could find it, I could have it. He brought it into work yesterday and gave it to me.
