Damn it Rich, I assume this real and affordable but I dont know whats original and what's been tampered with. Is there a guide to buying old Omega dress watches. My biggest problem besides lack of knowledge is wrist size at 8.25 inches I'm afraid a 38mm case may look small ...Please any advice or websites I can trust. I was also thinking about getting one of the 1962 reps but I think they have 8015s in them. Any help would be appreciated

Dunno, a buddy brought this over to me. It was his Dads 25 year watch at his company. 1972, never been serviced. I cleaned and polished it. Polished the plexi as well. Its a 36mm. Beautiful thing and its gained 15 seconds in 3 days on my wrist. That is impressive. They cost between $500 and $1500 depending on condition. I personally love the patina on this one. It was a work watch. He also brought this one over, which I am much more interested in.
