    Does this look legit?

    After looking for a half link for my 2254, this popped up on eBay for a silly b.i.n price which I snapped up..anyway,after comparing it to my own bracelet the new purchase is in much better condition,clasp is crisper to fasten and it looks much newer.
    Seems it was cheap because it is a couple of links short but the cheap price has me thinking either the seller knew nothing about watches or its a fake.
    Anyone have an opinion if it's legit?

    Sorry for the crappy photos

    Looks good to me ( Im no expert on the newer bracelets ) older vintage beads of rice

    Fonts look good OMEGA pointed A different to the A in professional ect

    Omega signage and numbers on clasp pressed clean and crisp from what I can see

    Any chance of a return if a fake ?

    Ah,cheers. It's looks and feels like the original so that was the response I was hoping for.

    Well,wanted a half link and got a newer,crisper clasp in the deal. Seller (female)had minimum feedback and was selling a mishmash of items so maybe knew little about item so happy boy.

    Still the odd bargain to be had online but few and far between.

    Half link price I ordered ( and need to cancel) was £36.90..and a 4/5 week wait from the Manchester dealer....

    This was £26.50 delivered.it will be easier to take two links out of my original bracelet and put the newer one on.

    Complete bargain!

    Iím no expert but comparing to my PO bracelet it looks very good.

    Only thing to perhaps note is the triangle with omega looks like the bottom bit is not etched in or is this just the angle of the picture?
    Same for the 62?

    Normally the give away is the screws?

    You should've worn a mask at that price; well done.

    Yes,it's fully etched.
    My eyes aren't when they used to be so had to use a magnifying app to check..the more I look the more I feel it's kosher.

    Had a couple good buys recently,pure luck.
    But did miss out on a planet Ocean a few weeks ago that went b.i.n £1600 because I dallied.

    Luckily the seller had a 2254 on as well so didn't make the same mistake!!
