I bought a watch hoping it was a real. Seamaster 300 is this authentic? I’ve never seen a fake like this so hoping I didn’t get burned

What jumped out at me was the condition of the bakelite bezel; it seems unreasonably good for a 60-year-old watch. There are other folks here with much more experience with this particular variant, but I'd be very suspicious. If you compare it to this one from a dealer with pretty good reviews, I think you'll see lots of differences. Look, for example, at the Omega logo.

The caseback definitely doesn't belong with the watch. British Military W10-6645-99 watches were supplied by Smiths, Hamilton, and CWC. Not, as far as I know, by Omega.

Updated to add: Apparently Omega did supply some of these. They are definitely pricey
