Thanks a lot eric!!
Do note that this IS NOT a certficate of authenticity. It is a statement by Omega, that according to their records, a watch bearing those numbers left the factory on a certain date.

They make no comment on the particular watch you may -- or may not -- have in your possession, it's condition or its authenticity.

Anyone can submit a set of numbers and description to Omega . . . . whether they own the watch or not.

It is merely an extract of Omega's records, and that is what they call it, for the excellent reason that is precisely what it is.

I am merely stating the obvious, but calling something what it is not is a pet peeve of mine. Falsehoods repeated may become, at best, urban legend or at worst, commonly accepted knowledge.
