Here's an auction for a fake caseback:

  • Pointy "A"

  • "SEAMASTER" engraving doesn't
    look right. The "SEA" looks like a
    slightly smaller typeface than
    "MASTER".

  • The Seahorse engraving isn't quite
    right . Study and compare a few
    authentic casebacks with fakes and
    you'll begin to notice the differences
    in details. Pay attention to the details
    of the eye, nose, mouth and mane.

Here's another with all the usual clues:

  • "Stubbies".

  • Closed loops.

  • Fake hands.

  • Pointy "A".

  • "CERTIFED" is mispelled.

  • Incorrect cal 565 (w/ date)
    movement.

In this case the seller knows it's a fake
and states in the auction description
"THE SS SIGNED OMEGA CASE &
DIAL, DIAL AND HANDS ARE
BELIEVED AFTERMARKET/REMADE"

We're seeing a pattern develop with this
seller. This is their second entry in the hall
of fame (see page 1). The now obvious
clues are:

  • "Stubbies".

  • Closed loops.

  • No outline on date window.

  • The date wheel is "yellowed",
    everything else is bright white.

  • Fake hands w/ "ball" style second
hand.

  • Fake bezel.

  • The caseback engraving is fake. Issue
number A/254/67 is commonly used on
many fakes.

  • It also lacks solid strap bars,
which it would have if it were in
fact a genuine military issue.

In this case the seller knows it's a fake and
states in the auction description "We find
out that the case and second hand are
bought later and may be non-original but
the calibre movement 565 is ORIGINAL
and it's still a good deal for an Omega
Seamaster 300 Military."

Yeah, right.

Here's another seller making their second
appearance here. At first glance you would think this
is a re-listing of a previous auction (see page 1).
Closer examination reveals even though the watches
look alike, the movement serial numbers are different.
The photo's are also different from the previous
auction. They've done a better job this time
photographing the watch in a manner to make the
"stubbies" harder to see. But they're still there, as are
the usual clues:

  • Stubbies.

  • Closed Loops.

  • Fake hands w/ "ball" style second hand.

  • Fake bezel.

  • Pointy "A".

  • Certifed misspelled.

  • The seller states "100% GENIUNE 1960'S   
OMEGA MOVEMENT,REST OF THE WATCH    
HAS BEEN RECENTLY REMADE". They must   
think this language is enough to cover their ass
when the buyer discovers the watch is a fake.
