hi.

the dial is an Original Service one.

very late, recent.

the Military Engraving is (bad) FAKE.

the Serial Number is very early for a ref 165024

just ONE Original (with Extract of Archive) was seen in that Serial Number Range.

the Bracelet is from a late Speedmaster.

do not buy it.



cheers.

I have an interest in these and hope to have one some day (after I pick up that Tudor snowflake, IWC 3227, Panerai 190, etc. etc.) so I'll continue this thread with more questions.

I understand this is a miss-match of Omega parts thrown together (new dial, old bezel insert and hands, case that is ether new or old and polished, etc.) but is the only thing actually fake (as in non-Omega) the military engravings on the caseback? Or is the entire caseback fake? Or are there other fake parts I am not seeing?

Just trying to get an education.

Thanks,
Michael M.

at worst: a completely fake case, dial and hand-set, with a genuine Omega movement fitted (very common scenario); or a a franken-watch made up with a mixture of real and altered Omega materials.

I have a very genuine civilian SM300on my website; original military issued SM300s are very, very, rare!!

To find a genuine and all original civilian SM 300 becomes harder and harder nowadays. I am not even talking about military ones, as I wouldn't put any buck in it unless I am 100 % sure of the buyer and the watch.

There are simply too many military SM 300 fakes around.

Regarding the civilian versions, most of the time it is a strage mixture of original and service parts, most of the time new dials, casebacks or inserts for instance.

Finding a 100 % kosher one becomes harder and harder. It requires a complete inspection and to check every aspect of the watch before buying or bidding. Not easy actually, especially when you deal with pics over the web.

This is the last one I found and I believe it is a correct example but you never know
