Omega authorized dealer

by S.A
(U.S.A)

I recently inherited (sadly) an Omega watch. My father purchased it in 1970 in Mexico and it came from an Omega authorized dealer there (apparently.) It came in a 1968 Olympic box and it had receipt and papers. (Again, who knows.) The watch is stainless with numerals only at 12, 3,6 and 9 and it says OMEGA Automatic and at the bottom around the 6 "swiss made."

I couldn't find any info on it from the official Omega site. The serial number starts with an 8 and is 8 digits long. The ref number seems to be (from the receipt), 593. It was serviced by a seemingly official Omega repair center in Los Angeles in 1981. THat was the last record of service. It runs great. On the back, it is sealed solid and only says "waterproof" in all caps. around what would be between 6 and 7 if there was a clock face on the back as well.

My questions:
1) How do I find out if it is real?
2) How do I get it properly serviced and repaired? (It needs a new crystal and the second hand is sort of spotted -- looks like maybe moisture got in there...

Can you help me find out more about this watch?

Thank you,

S.A

Dear S.
From your description it is very difficult to determine what you have. The reference number (593) does not sound like a typical Omega reference number. Overall, from your description it does sound like it's a genuine piece, but it would really help if you could send/post some pictures of the front and back, the box and the papers you have. From this information I could probably let you know what you have, how much it might be worth and where to send it for repair.

Thanks for your reply. I ended up finding a local Swiss trained horologist who serviced the watch. It turned out to be an authentic 1954 automatic. My dad had bought another watch in 1970 but it wasn't the one I inherited, my mom just put it in the Omega box to give to me.

So it's fixed, it's beautiful and all is done now. Thanks again.
