The case back doesn’t look quite right, either. The OMEGA writing doesn’t align with the bottom of the triangle, and also, I’ve never seen an Omega stamped on the outside of the case back like that. This should be inside.
I find the black Omega stamp on the movement quite amusing. Who will that fool? This is a Lorsa 238G, and it fits nicely into the case. So my guess is that somebody just modified the dial and case back – hey presto – an Omega.
And here is the calibre mark under the balance cock. A Lorsa 238G indeed.
What strikes me here is that this is probably the oldest fake I’ve seen. I don’t think that this was done recently, as this doesn’t come out of China. This looks very much like a European fake. Somebody just took a bog standard watch with a Lorsa movement, and “made” and Omega out of it.
And the writing is nowhere near to what it should look like.
This is where I stop my work on the watch, and it’s going back to the client free of charge, and taken apart. I don’t really want anybody else to get stung by this watch.
