3. Inspect the dial.
As sophisticated as some counterfeiters may be, they still make mistakes. Check for any errors on the watch, such as spelling and engraving mistakes, which are quick giveaways. When you inspect the dial, also be sure to check for the following:
OMEGA LOGO – check the design of your desired Omega watch. In some cases, the Omega logo is a piece of metal attached on the dial, in some cases it is painted on the dial.
LUME – the hands and markers of Omega watches are equipped with reflective material for better legibility. Try inspecting the watch in the dark for about 15 minutes. A replica may still have lume, but it will not be as bright as an original Omega watch.
DATE COMPLICATION – This is one of the hardest elements to replicate because Omega watches use different kinds of magnification. Check that the date window is aligned to the center of the dial and that the numbers are stamped perfectly.
