Interesting Omega for sale in Holland (€12,000.00):

Omega Railmaster / Seamaster ref 135.004 Pakistan Air Forces. Ultra rare Omega military watch, rarer than any FAP or UK military Omega. Second generation reference, it uses the case & movement from the Railmaster but caseback engraving & dial script from the Seamaster.
The PAF did not like the Railmaster name so Omega made a very special dial equal to the Rail- and Seamaster 300 but with only Seamaster on the dial.

Interesting and thanks for posting. It seems to be a theme that Omega would modify certain models at the request of a specific military. Another example is the 2914 Railmaster - Flightmaster made for the FAP. They basically used a Railmaster and and changed the dial and back to read Flightmaster.

Here is an original 1961 Railmaster for comparison:

I'd call it a franken: the dial may well be authentic Peruvian, as might the case, (Admiralty Geneve perhaps, or just the angle?) but the two together. I'd say no.
It's a pretty dumb franken if it is.
