Dear Community,

I am interested in this watch, offered by a local watch store, who deal with vintage watches.
I noticed that the Omega signature has irregularities and contacted the seller about this. They explained that this watch was produced between 1965 and 1970 and that Omega had various suppliers for dials at this time. As a result, lettering like this would not be unusual.

I find this hard to believe, even though this seller always seemed very trustworthy, they also have a brick-and-mortar-store.

What would you say about this watch?

Square Root - I'd say with 99.99999999999999999999999999999999999999999986% certainty that this is a redial. The remainder to 100% is because it is possible that Omega farmed out dial making to a 2nd grade school learning to print letters.

No "Swiss Made" = redial

Thanks for your help so far!
Because I was interested in this model, I actually found the exact same watch again.
Amusingly, also with this model I am suspecting a redial. Could someone confirm this to me?
Now, this one does have "Swiss Made" printed at the bottom, and it also does have even lettering - however, the OMEGA seems to be slightly off-centered as a whole.

This could an original dial. The seller claims "all original" including original strap.

I don't see any strap change damage on the case, so it could well be all original.

The seller's other items seem innocuous. There is a Ramschladen on every corner in Ottakring. A Ramschladen is an Austrian cross between a antique store and a junk store.

Thanks! What about the Omega Logo though. The lettering does not seem to be centered under the logo. It seems shifted to the left a bit. i.e. the "E" from Omega is not below the logo, which it usually seems to be.

Could be the picture. If you're in Vienna then you could go look at it.
