    Omega Seamaster Professional 2254.8000 Project

    the rep ones aren't very good so best to pick up used insert. You could also try WSO for their black SMP insert.

    Sorry the title should have been 2254.5000.
  5. Been meaning to share this project but better late than never. Background on this is I found this watch posted for sale locally here in Australia - it came without a bracelet. It was a non-runner with damaged bezel, stripped crown and dial has seen some water damage. Picked it up for under U$500 so thought worth a fix up! Here's a picture pre-repair. As you can see - not in great shape. Here's a picture post-repair. Replaced the insert, serviced the movement (no real damage) and replaced the crown and tube and added a genuine bracelet. Hope you guys like it.

    HELP! Omega Seamaster 2254.50

    Only the closed factory ones actually get close to genuine. One of the biggest tells of the black SMP was the wrong HEV position and the pearl in the bezel. If you are not picky, you can pick up a used quartz Black SMP - they pretty much fit the bill

    Cartel bracelet for 5513

    No real good 93150 bracelet contenders to be honest. All have their flaws. Best to pick up a used genuine.

    Scammer: REPPIN

    @Nanuq Considering we have now confirm his is a scammer - why can't we name and shame him publicly? At least it will warn other members if they ever deal with him.

    Picked up this little submariner the other day!

    thanks guys Not hard to switch back - the lume on the new insert pearl is bugging me though since the dial and hands no longer glow!
  14. Happy with this pick up! paid just a bit more than what a "superfranken" submariner sells on these boards - bargain Came with an old tritium bezel that has some wear - replaced it with a NOS. Good as new!
