    Lovely!

    Congratulations on a terrific purchase. Out of curiosity, how much did you pay for it? (I like to keep track of market prices for this watch)

    Mine isn't a recent acquisition but when it was serviced, about 18 months ago, the hour and minute hands were changed. The new hands are the correct replacements for this model (and I believe other 1045s) but were different to the originals - the new ones are stubbier.
    I recently got around around to doing something about it by having the original hands refurbished and put back on (and I have been wearing it all week)

    'New' hands:

    Good move! Watch looks righteous now. Who refurbished them? Mine are a little dirty, some specs, I wanted to do it but was afraid to mess with it.
    Also, anyone know what the original box and papers look like?
    Appreciate a pic if you have. Where could I get an original box, anyone know.
    Yours doesn't have the Omega symbol in the hesalite does it? I have been told that
    theoriginal didnt have it, but the replacement hesalite does?

    Mine came with this box, which is supposed to be the original one. It also contained the original warranty card, of which I have no picture at the moment. Only thing missing is the "Mark V" manual usually associated with this watch.

    That's correct. Mine, still with its original crystal, doesn't have the Omega symbol. On the other hand, the replacement crystal I have in reserve does.

    And regarding the hands, I much prefer the original ones to those Omega installs now, that are the versions initially made for earlier calibre 1045 watches. But apparently they don't install the right replacement dials either (as the Omegamania auction demonstrated)...

    Thanks for the info Paschal!
    Would apppreciate anyone else that has info
    on box and papers to chime in. I saw one
    with a slide out box that was supposed to be original but can't find it anymore.
    Any info about hands refurb would also be appreciated.
    Are NOS long style hands available?
    NOS Dial available?

    I've seen the type of box you are talking about, and that is why I cannot be 100% positive that mine is original, though I have no reason to suspect it did not come with my watch. That being said, it is possible that the type of box was different depending on which market the watch was sold on, or the type of vendor making the sale. Maybe the slide out box was only supposed to ship the watch to the AD, the latter switching it for a more elaborate one like mine. Anything is possible...

    I haven't researched that yet, as the hands on mine are still pretty clean.

    Not from Omega, that's a certainty.

    But as I stated in an earlier post (with a picture attached), I was ultimately able to track a NOS dial down after a 2 year search. The seller had a second one which was sold to the late Chuck Maddox. I've also seen a couple pop up on eBay over the years, but those sold for more than $500 a piece!

    Hi pitpro,
    You have a great looking piece - I don't think the hands need refurbishing. I had mine done by Swiss Time Services, who are the Omega Approved Service Centre for the repair of older and historical watches, in the UK.
    As far as I know (and STS also checked) the original style hands are no longer available from Omega.
    My hesalite does have the Omega symbol, but it isn't noticeable and, more importantly, it has the correct profile (plus I still have the original anyway ).
    I can't help with boxes, except to say that it seems Omega wasn't particularly rigid when it came to what boxes went with what watches.

    I did a google search for "376.0822 original box papers" and
    spent an hour looking at what's out there. The more I look
    the more yours looks like the box they came in.(I saw 2 that looked the same) That's what I'll look for on eBay.
