    Vintage Omega authenticity question. All original or franken 64 Seamaster DV

    Good Morning
    I am interested in purchasing this listed 64 Seamaster DeVille with a 610 movement. It looks to be in excellent shape for me but i am wondering if it is indeed all original. Movement and type seem to appear so. here are some of the listing details

    Case: Monocoque stainless steel case - Ref. 136.020.
    - Crown: Original signed crown.
    - Crystal: Signed acrylic crystal.
    - Movement: In-house calibre 610 adjusted 2 positions. The serial number 21543333 date it to year 1964.
    - Dial: Original vertical brushed dial with tritium applied baton markers.
    - Hands: Original tritium baton hand set.
    - Dimension: Approx. 34.5 mm across without crown - 37 mm with crown - 40.2 mm lug to lug.
    - Service history: Recently serviced by us: Case is cleaned with ultra-sonic cleaner. Movement is cleaned - oiled & calibrated.

    some pictures attached, Does anything scream warning here walk away? This would be a overseas transaction, not preferred but i have had successful transactions to date doing so.

    Any Omega oficionados here who would like to comment, it would be much appreciated

    Thanks

    A bit off topic but I have purchased two non-Omega watches from this seller (I can tell who the seller is from his pictures) and both watches were a 100% legit. This is a beautiful watch, hope others can chime in and share their thoughts.

    I assume that you have already looked at the OVD entry:

    Edit: I don't see any major red flags. The lugs have been polished a bit, but I've seen a lot worse. There is some damage to the dial near the center, but that's obvious in the photo. The case-back engraving is sloppy, but that seems to be uneven with Omega for some reason.

    It looks largely correct, at first glance
    https://www.omegawatches.com/planet-...details/14860/
    The dial looks authentic, the movement matches the case.

    As to the case, I'm not sure if it was only cleaned- I think it has been polished, but there is one more thing that has me worried. That would be the reference number. It's engraved in a sloppy way, with an obviously different tool and technique than the rest of the markings. Then again, I have been able to look up another SMDV top-loader case made by Piquerez (like this one), which had the reference number done in a much thinner font than the rest of the markings.

    Edit: Dan posted while I was typing, but it looks like our observations are quite similar.
