Hello guys, looking for a little advice here. I've been looking into buying an Omega Seamaster for quite a while, this will be my first Omega purchase so I'd like to get it right... I'd be quite happy with either the blue face or the black, not fussed about age as long as its 2000 onwards, I would go for the 007 50th anniversary, but as a massive bond fan I don't think I could bring myself to wear it. Anyway I digress, here are some shots of one I'm planning to go and look at, but being as I've never owned Omega's or had much contact with them, I'd like some feedback as to wether it looks legit. The seller claims the watch is unworn, and it still has plastic on it, kind of makes me wary as I've seen tons of replicas covered in plastic like this. Heres the pics provided by the seller:

I see the pictures. I'm no expert. I do own a Planet ocean XL. This looks pretty good to me, but I'd wait for Andrema to take a look. He is better at spotting a fake then I am.

The pictures are very hard to tell anything.

Where did the seller buy the watch? Did they purchase at an Authorized Dealer? If yes can they produce a sales receipt. That would be key if they they can prove they got it at an AD

Still waiting on a response from seller, as soon as I hear I'll be asking for closer pics of the back plate, and thanks TvDinner I'll try and find out where he bought it.

The reps I've seen are quite accurate. Definitely make sure you know what you're getting.

Spoken with the seller, and he says it was bought from Goldsmiths (high street jewellers in the UK) he says no receipt, but garantee that shows where it was purchased. Asked him to email me some pictures of the documents, and the back of the watch, I will post back if and when he replies. Thanks for the feedback!

Meet him at Goldsmiths and have it authenticated prior to sale...

Yeah thats an option, but its a three hour drive to his location, so I need to be sure before I go. Seller has just emailed some more pics, and its screaming replica at me. Hes provided a picture of the documents, after googling the ref number it appears to be for an Omega Constellation, also there is a hong kong adress, he claims to have bought in the UK. Here are the pics, let me know what you guys think.
