    Omega bracelet question

    Hi, I'm going to try this here since I got no response on omegaforums.net. Thanks in advance!

    I did a bunch of searching and couldn't find any mention of this. I recently bought 3570.50 with a 1499/842 bracelet. Today I was doing some close-up examination (I was sitting on a conference call) and noticed a small engraving near the clasp. As you can see, it says "HBD" and is slightly crooked. Does anyone know what it is? The only thing I can come up with is it was a birthday present or initials.

    That's strange. I figure it has to be some sort of manufacturing label, but mine doesn't have it. (TBH - I don't even know if I have the same bracelet as you - it looks like it, but I do have the 3570.50.) You should ask the gang in the Omega subforum.

    edit - I just checked and my bracelet is 1498/840, so not the same as yours.

    Agree. Repost this request in this site's "Omega" sub forum. Lots of smart Omega folks there.

    Good luck.

    I THINK it’s just a production code that is used in the Omega factory.

    Quite odd, can you take it into an Omega boutique? That might be the easiest way to get an answer.

    I have the same Speedy and bracelet combination that has a similar mark in the same place. My link reads “GBD”.

    That definitely makes it sound manufacturing related, but it's strange that I can't find any reference to a marking there, especially considering how much info is out there.
