Omega Speedmaster Watches


Omega is a Swiss made watch based in Biel/Bienne, Switzerland. Omega was worn by NASA and was the first watch on the moon in 1969. It has also been the watch worn by James Bond since 1995. Along with it's popularity, it has attracted many reproductions. Look at the steps below to help determine if your watch is real or counterfeit.

The first thing to do to authenticate your watch is just an overall quality check. Make sure everything looks perfect. There should be no flaws, alignment problems or misspellings.

Next, look at the subdials. The real ones are recessed into the dial. As you can see in the fake, some of the counterfeits are not recessed at all. If you have one that is not recessed, it's a fake.

Next, look at the length of the minute hand. It should extend to the fraction marks on the dial. On the fake, it is too short.

Next, look at the motion as the second hand moves. It should not move in one second steps. It should move in a motion of several steps per second which makes it look like it is moving in a continuous motion.

Now you need to check the luminosity. Start by charging your watch. Place it in front of a light for at least 15 seconds, then immediately go to a dark place or shelter it from light. You should see all the lumes clear and bright.

And last, a real Omega will be stamped with their name on the inside like the picture above. You probably don't want to remove the back yourself if you're not a professional but if you have the time to take it to one, they can verify this for you.
