    Does the Omega Speedmaster look ok?

    Hi all,

    Apparently the buyer of this listing fell through, so I'm next in line. Does this one look ok? It looks fine to me but I'm a noob;

    https://forums.watchuseek.com/f29/fs-...3394922?page=1

    The only thing that worries me is no serial number, maybe it was blurred out or polished away?

    Thanks for all of your help in advance!

    I don't know the cutoff date, but older Speedys have the SN on the movement, not the case.

    Thanks windupp! That makes a lot of sense.

    If anyone knows the cutoff year that would be great.

    The Mega Speeding Master is not very popular on these forums. I would consider a better watch e.g Invicta.

    $2200 for a 15 year old speedmaster non sapphire isn't a phenomenal deal... service is going to require $500. For $3000, you should be able to get a near mint recent 3570.50 or even brand new without the bracelet.

    Actually the ad says 1991, so even older than 15 years, but I agree 100% with that point. Also, it's in Italy? Are you in the States or Europe?

    If you're asking if it's fake, you should post this in the Omega Fake Busters sub-forum (F441).

    Yes, I'm in the US. He has great feedback on ebay and apparently has sold here before, but it's moot since it isn't a good buy, but thank you for reviewing anyway. I didn't know that about the change in serial numbers, very good to know.

    Sorry about posting this in the wrong forum, mods please close or move this thread if necessary.

    Thanks again all.

    ...which has the efficiency of a coin toss in identifying fakes. About a 1990s piece I would ask the main Omega forum. For watches from the 1980s or older, the Vintage forum is the best place to ask.
