    We don't do valuations... read some past posts to see why.

    I fear you have a redial. That is what it looks like to me. The dial is too clean. The lettering is uneven and smeared. It looks like an 'amateur' job from India or the Philippines.

    If so, this diminishes the collectability substantially... but a redial makes for a better wearing watch often so the watch can be said to be more useful.

    We need pics of the back and insides to say much but, based on the style and sweep second hand, I assume this is from the '60s or there abouts.

    Thanks for posting and for the Rolex pic... Vintage doesn't get to see many Rolexes...

    Thanks Eeeb. I recently got the whole watch cleaned so maybe the dial looks clean. And for the smeared lettering, it might be the camera. I've been looking at other dials from the Vintage omegas, and it looks a little shaky too.

    If you see, the S looks bigger then the rest of the letters, like my dial. Anyways, thanks again

    Of course there has been a lot of inflation since this watch was made... it probably cost as much as $180 new As to what it might be worth today... we are pretty firm in not making such estimates... it is really impossible to do without the watch in hand.

    In my other thread, Eptaz also believes the watch has a refinished dial. I kind of think so too, because the back of this watch has the back of the constellation. The tick marks on this dial look a little uneven too. But the good thing is if I don't like the watch in 2 weeks, I can always return it and get my money back.
