So I am new to the world of automatic watches as well as this forum. I saw this: Nice Vintage Omega Seamaster Stainless Cal 1010 Automatic 70's Men's Watch P | eBay Omega Seamaster 1010. I like the watch, but... I am not sure what to look for to determine if the watch has been redialed ,if the movement is in good condition, or if the watch is even a real Omega. Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated!

Hi and welcome to the WuS forum!
There's a forum specifically for this question: Omega Fake Busters

They have much more knowledge about vintage-ish Omega's than I do. That said, I'd stay away from this one, it almost certainly is a re-dial job. That alone brings into question the originality of the remainder of the components - or as we like to say "how it left the factory". Unfortunately Omega is among the most copied watches out there, but you are doing a great first step by asking people who can help!

Good luck with finding a great watch
~D

This looks like a redial, but I am mostly concerned with the movement, that looks like a franken to me and is in poor condition.

The dial is described as 'original restored' but 'restored' almost certainly means 're-dialled', hope this helps!
