How to Spot a real Omega Watch

There is no watch collector or luxury watch lover who doesn’t know Omega watches, and no wonder. Omega watches are the most popular watch brand, with a history dating back from 1848. They have adorned the wrists of many famous stars and professionals across all fields, remaining the most sought-after watch even today.

Self-authenticating a pre-owned Omega watch

With its risen popularity, it is no surprise that there are many replicas to be found in the luxury watch market, making it hard to spot an authentic omega watch. Do not worry though, as our expert team has your back.

We put together some easy steps to follow to authenticate an Omega watch:

Examine the Dial
Pay meticulous attention to the dial. Authentic Omega watches exhibit flawless printing with clear markings. The dial is the most important part of an Omega watch and an emblem of art. Ensure that the font, alignment, and spacing of the brand logo, model name, and other inscriptions are precise.

Quality of Materials
Genuine Omega watches boast impeccable craftsmanship, with high-quality materials. The materials that are most widely used for Omega watches are stainless steel and gold. Assess the weight, finish, and feel of the watch. Most authentic omega watches employ nice finishing lines, unlike counterfeit ones.

Movement Verification
The heart of any watch lies in its movement. Omega Swiss-made movements are famous for their precision and reliability. Authenticate the movement by observing its smooth and consistent sweep. You may also want to consult a professional and ask for their guidance.

Look for the Serial Number
Every authentic Omega watch comes with a unique serial number engraved on the case back. For new watches it can also be found on one of the lugs, as well as inside the case or the movement. Verify this number with Omega’s records to confirm its authenticity. Real omega watches have a serial number which presents information about their manufacture year or model number.
