Omega authorized dealer
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.
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?
