Hi all, somewhat new to the world of vintage watches and acquired this vintage Omega in a trade. The buyer already offered a watch I was happy to trade with and this was extra value that I thought my partner might wear. But if it's a total fake I would rather not give it as a present.
All the seller told me is that it was a Cal. 420 vintage Seamaster, but now that I have the thing in my hands and can do some more research it doesn't appear to resemble any watch Omega has ever made - Seamaster or not!
I opened it up and the caseback looks to be original, with 2667-1 stamped on the inside. The stem is also stamped. The crystal has clearly been replaced, the case has been refinished, and the dial repainted. It also looks like someone put the wrong indexes at 12-3-6-9 and re-lumed indiscriminately.
So, can anyone tell me what I just bought? Is this even a Seamaster?
Any information is appreciated!
