    Please help verifying authenticity of vintage Omega

    Hello ladies and gents,

    So after collecting watches for a few years now, I have just recently started to purchase a few affordable vintage watches. While searching for my (potentially) next vintage purchase, I came across an Omega (according to the seller a 2493-8 model) which is supposed to be from the 50's. However I am not able to find any information regarding this watch and I have never seen a similar Omega with a copper coloured dial.

    I would really appreciate it if anyone with knowledge regarding (vintage) Omega's can chime in and tell me more about this model and it's authenticity. Thank you in advance!

    This is a redial. The excerpt from Omega is here

    https://www.omegawatches.com/watch-o...-omega-ck-2493

    This particular watch is all over the net from multiple physical locations so some are obviously scams.

    The "9" is a big problem for me. All of the watches I've seen have either applied indices or applied (not painted) number and watches of this era with painted numbers don't use this font.

    Thank you for your input! Too bad it's a redial, I was really into the look of the watch.
