I think they're both fakes

Crown on bottom pic is odd

Bezel numerals seem to touch bezel dots on bottom pic

Bracelet end link fit on top pic is sloppy

Date window frame on top pic isn't sharp along bottom edge

Date wheel numerals don't look right to me

Bottom fake. The bezel is sloppy. If its real, the photo is just not crisp.

this sure would be easier if I could hold the watches

top real but older
bottom fake - hands not right, crown guards too short, lume too thin

I think....

I've never seen a Bond era Seamaster with a black handset. The bezel is not faceted correctly on the bottom piece. Flat over the pip and markers. Could be the pics. But the bezel color on the bottom piece seems to dark.
Otherwise, I'd need to see the back to check if the lugs are laser coded.

The hands aren't black, that's just a reflection

Well then its the bezel. The face ring was not installed correctly.The bezel ring is flat above the markers when it should be pointed.

Outside of the numbers on the bezel and the extension of the crown, Ill say that it is a good replica

So is it something we all missed ? Or are you being coy ?

the wave pattern on the dial of the top watch is centered the bottom one is not.

The text on the bottom watch 'f' in feet is not uniform in height

I suspect the top watch was re-lumed though

in conclusion I can't tell because its an Omega. Need to know what model each picture represents as there are so many variations with the same name.

Both probably real.

I'd say bottom is real. Bezel has nice luster. That's hard to fake. I think the misalignment is a camera angle thing just like it is in the first set of photos

Nice catch on the f... But there is no way that bezel is correct.

I think the wave pattern looks okay on the bottom. Look at the 12 position and the date window compared to one another. The waves seem to match up. I still say the bottom is fake. If you look at the lugs the inside seems to have a bit of a curve to it that is bending the light differently than the real photo comparisons do not have. Though that could simply be lighting... The "f" is damn close too. That bezel still looks sloppy, but again, could be the photo.

The top of the hands shaft is too shiny too. Should have been blackened/darkened.

I'd take it to an authorized dealer.

For my money, I'd say the bottom is fake.

Lume application, bezel insert alignment, dial pattern & printing don't appear correct.
