    Can you help me determine the veracity and age of this Seamaster?

    Hey guys, I came across this SMP. It looks pretty legit and it is coming from a seller with good feedback, but my main concern is age. It's sword hands and wave dial with what looks to be a stainless steel bezel insert. I don't know when it was made and I haven't seen one like it before.



    Any help would be appreciated.

    This one is generally referred to as the "elaectric blue" due to it's dial, this one seems to be the quartz variant.
    A nice watch, i have never seen one on the Bond style bracelet before only the Speedie style.

    That is an electric blue 2265.80 I believe. Full-sized 41mm quartz it looks like. I could be off with the model number as the 2265.80 has the speedy style bracelet and this one has the bond bracelet. I'm not sure if the model number was different for the bond bracelet variant.

    You're looking around late 90's to early 2000's. The earlier versions were on bonds I believe, and the later models shipped with speedy bracelets.

    The electric blue is one of Omega's nicest designs and with the sword hands it's also one of the easiest to read in low light.
    That one is completely authentic.
    The blue dial is sevearl shades of blue depemding on light and the viewing angle.

    Shame it isn't on the Speedmaster bracelet! I think I like that one better, though the Bond bracelet feels like such an icon.

    I think that's a mid size. I would confirm the dimensions with the seller. Nothing wrong with quartz if that's what you like!
