    Need help identify Omega Seamaster Ref - 135.011 Cal 601

    I have recently acquired this nice looking Omega. But it seems strange as there isn't the addition 'Seamaster 600' on the dial despite the ref nunber and cal 601. Can expert please help to see if it is a redial or fake :(

    Looking at the pics the font of the T swiss made T but may be due to distortion from the crystal, I always expect a bit of aging on the dial but this one looks clean. Its always harder to tell from pics you have aging of hand lume but cant tell aging on the lume of the dial due to picture. Its a nice piece with a good solid 601 movement inside but with caseback I would expect seamaster 600 on the dial.

    Ya the awkward distortion on swiss made is cause by the crystal. The dial is nice but under 10x magnifing there are lots of black dot dirts. As for the lume, dial lumes are all dead, hands still has some fading glow. That's what I thought, I googled the ref number and all have the seamster 600. Maybe its a donor caseback, fraknen?

    I am sure any movement holding a 601 cal would have seamaster or other wording, most watches that did not have any wording were mostly from upto the 50s.

    It's anyone's guess here. The 6xx also was in Geneves I've seen not marked with Seamaster. So its possible that this was a production dial for the lower end of the line. The dial looks original and the dial style is correct for the period. You would probably have to get a watchmaker to assess whether or not the dial has been touched up but I'm leaning to more original than not. This is not a collector piece so unless you paid a bundle for it, you have a nice daily wearer.

    I have one, too! Album here https://imgur.com/a/dHG0Zh8 . Same situation. Dial has enough aging to suspect it’s not a redial. I’m guessing this is a lower end Geneve using the same case as the Seamaster 600. 34.5mm.
