    Well the dial is not original, the font of OMEGA and AUTOMATIC isn't right.
    Also the second hand is too long, it should just hit the dots, not the edge of the dial.

    Furthermore SWISS MADE is missing at the bottom of the dial, this isnt always there but on this model I'd assume it to be there.

    It is a redialed, overpolished victim of bad rehab. Not a watch you would collect.
    "Forever is composed of nows." - Emily Dickinson

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

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

    I agree with the other guys about not wanting it in my collection because of the dial, but the price seems to be reasonable to me (not cheap). There are plenty of those out there for that price range, some cheaper.

    IMO The Seamaster looks good to me. I checked the Omega vintage database and the case numbers and movement numbers match up and the crown looks right.
    It is possible the dial has been redone. I would put this watch in my collection and I would certainly wear it without hesitation. But again that is my opinion.

    not just possible, definitely repainted. It's not the worst job I've seen but it's not the best either.
