Hope you get your money back. If not, name and shame the seller although I have a feeling they'll just disappear and pop up again under a new name. They knew what they were doing. Those fake watch sites make me sick. Pedalling utter crap under the guise of "replicas". OP, please keep this thread updated
A common thing I hear is that fakes look more like the real thing on their photos because they are edited. If Omega's movements can be cloned 1:1 with decorations and all like some people here believe, then this is the end of the luxury watch market. I really hope this is not a fake... OP, we all need to know the answer to this question... It's possible that there is a movement underneath that looks nothing like the Omega's and the top part of the movement that we see with the bridge and rotor is non-functioning. If this is the case then it will be easily discovered when a watch maker opens the case back, but even this is high end scary stuff and more than that (if it really functions) is too much to bear for the watch market. Like I said, we need an answer to this question for peace of mind or to prepare for the watch apocalypse...
Other than the rotor bearing sticking out more on the fake and the finish looking fake, this is horrifyingly close. The 8500 clones (and equivalents) even have the independent hour hand function. I'm not buying any watch from a personal listing after seeing this. I didn't think this stuff was possible.

What’s even scarier is a lot of these sellers on eBay that are selling fakes have good feedback. I think there’s a large percentage of people that buy and don’t even know they bought a fake... from the ones I’ve seen they go to the extra effort of buying real boxes and getting everything but the warranty card. I think they can keep their feedback rating because if there’s any issues they just offer full refunds right away and the buyer is probably just happy to get their money back. I’m not sure how much a good fake cost now but I’m guessing $500? And these guys are selling stuff for at least a couple grand. Probably enough profit in there to cover any customer service costs if someone catches it and wants to return it.
My question is how did you buy a black good planet if Omega doesn't make a black good planet. That almost seems willingly gullible for a person on a watch forum. I don't know if there's a black one or not as I'm not a fan of the model, but if you were looking in to buying you should research it more.

This case speaks to the immense knowledge value of the forums and of being active enough to benefit from others’ honest insights. I’m not saying this about the OP but a lot of posters seem to use the forums only when they’re either buying a watch or seeking confirmation that what they already bought isn’t a fake, which most of the time it is. There’s a lot to be gained all the time.
We may be lost but we're making good time.
This is what happens when people impulse buy watches like this online with no research, no info, no nothing. It sucks for OP, but unfortunately the internet is filled with fakes, some very convincing too.
Buy the seller not the watch …… right ? I research everything!!!
Dude, you seriously need to stop buying random low-priced crap off eBay and hoping it's real. Eventually, eBay/PayPal's automatic system will flag you as a risk for opening too many claims and you'll be perma-banned, even if you are opening legitimate claims for receiving fakes.
