    Serial number and watch date mystery

    Hello all,

    Recently purchased a 2531.80 and I am stumped when trying to confirm the date of the watch.

    The warranty card states it was purchased in 2002. But when using a serial checker online the serial returns 2006.

    How can this be?

    Serial is in the range > 80130000

    Thanks

    Omega serial numbers do not always meet the date criteria on those serial number checkers. I know my seamaster does not.

    It's not a Seiko, it's pretty hard to determine the time out of production outside of decade-blocks.
