    Seamaster Co-Axial Chonometer 150m/500ft Speedmaster Broad Arrow back

    My second attempt at posting ... apologies to the admins ...

    I recently received a Seamaster Co-Axial Chonometer 150m/500ft with a Speedmaster Broad Arrow back. Pictures below/attached. I've not had it opened and aside from the clasp being a bit dodgy ...

    It's the nicest watch I've ever worn, but I have two questions:

    1. Is it authentic ?

    2. If yes, what are the particulars (specific model, year of manufacture, etc) ?


    thanks in advance and greetings from Swiss-land

    I'm sorry to say, I think you have a few issues here.

    The case back says "Speedmaster", the dial says "Seamaster", and looks like an approximation of a 2500 Aqua Terra. However, the hand set is wrong, and a few other things, such as the logo, seem off.

    Possibly a frankenwatch, more likely a fake, I'm afraid.

    No worries about the news ... makes total sense and you know better ... anything I can learn is great news for me ... the watch must be (afaik) from the 1960's-1980's and the Aqua Terra (according to what I read just now) is from circa 2000's ...

    "frankenwatch" - new word for me, but I see how the Seamaster on front and Speedmaster on back are not normal ...

    Hoping others also pipe in to the conversation ...

    QUESTION: if I go to an Omega shop ... to ask about the watch ... will they confiscate the watch ??


    Thanks again

    SOLVED: it is *not* an Omega or a Seamaster. Confirmed by a watchmaker in Zug, Switzerland.

    Gift from mother-in-law whose husband passed away a few years ago and she wanted to be kind to me ... I've not told her ... I'll wear it when she visits :)

    Hard to tell without opening the back. I would post photos of the movement.

    Well, it looks pleasant enough (if someone's going to steal a design, why not steal one of the best?) and she'll appreciate the gesture. No harm at this point.
