    BUYER BEWARE: Over Polished cases.. please... LOTS of sellers claim to have "the best on ebay" please dont take our word for it.. oh do take a look!.. Please dont fall for "Shiny" yes genuine EXCELLENT examples hold the highest prices and are most ferociously fought over by collectors but dont fall for the overzealously polished omegas

    Remember if you cant buy MINT or near examples go for a watch with a little wear a serious collector would prefer this to an over polished "shiny" piece

    Beware of the Words "MINT" & "NOS" so often this simply means "Polished" & shiny. You want that...
