    Knowing absolutely nothing about Omega watches, it can't seem to make it's mind up whether it wants to be a seamaster or a speedmaster... I assume it should be one or the other ?

    This looks a bit more like it. Even with yours saying 'Speedmaster' - it just looks like a much lower quality item.

    Pretty much. It’s also got broad arrow on the back which has a completely different bezel. The crappy blue tape on the bracelet is a give away too.

    It's currently on a reputable auction house in the North West, listed as designer watches and Jewellery.

    This intrigues me:

    Whether it's a casting defect or a major scratch, it goes underneath the black coating

    Don't Omega watches usually that rather naff (IMHO) legend "Officially Certified Superlative Chronometer" or something similar on the dial? Just checked my wife's Omega Constellation though and it doesn't have all that nonsense on it - got 12 diamonds though :D.

    @MrM, I'd advise just popping into any jeweller and let them take a peek for you. I doubt they'd charge you to find out if it's real or fake. An expert would be able to put your mind at ease in seconds I'd imagine.

    There’s absolutely zero chance it’s real. Stay well clear.

    No intention of buying at all, just surprised a known auction site is selling fake items, perhaps they have a disclaimer for this on their site!

    Who wants to have a stab at this Tissot, currently up for action at £102!!!

    @MrM if that was genuine you would see the workings on the back of the watch, it is fake.

    Easiest way to tell is to look at the luminescent markers. If they're done poorly, it's a good indication that more checks need to be done.

    100% FAKE, you only have to look at it, the quality of the casting is terrible, the fonts are all wrong, that could only ever fool someone who has zero interest in watches and has never owned an Omega

    Just read the terms of the auction, it does state that items authenticity have not been checked or confirmed. Appears they auction real and fake gear off, that's morally wrong if you ask me, choose a side!

    I didn't know it was fake until I gain a response from the community here.

    If anything, your response was pointless, as it had already been confirmed numerous times.

    Thanks
