    Can someone help tell if this is a gen or rep? Looking to purchase but need some advice.

    Something feels a little off and it being sold as a gen but something is not sitting right especially with the bezel alignment. Can an Omega pro chime in and help me out? Asking for better pictures but this is what I got so far.

    Ask for a nice clear picture of the balance. This is one where the replica is extremely close to the genuine. I am concerned about the way the seconds hand is capped. It doesn't look right in the picture but it could just be the angle. Also I feel like the date wheel is sitting a little bit low. I don't like that the two movement shots given are at the same area and neither one shows the balance which would be your best tell of replica versus genuine.
    My wish list:
    Panerai OP VIII movement (7750 with GMT complication)

      OK will do, I also though the hands didnt look that crisp and not sure if its the angle but the bezel does not seem to be aligned either. But I will ask him for that also

          Looks like a rep to me because of the messy lume application. If you ask him for a video of him changing the date via quick set you will be able to tell if its a rep. Rotating the crown anti clockwise = Gen. Clockwise = Rep.

            Okay I was able to pull a couple of screenshots of the video clip he has. While the balance is not very clearly shown the glimpse that I was able to capture of it does not look right to me please see pictures below for comparison to genuine and replica picture from pure times website

              This is all of the evidence I need. I will go ahead and skip this as it seems like there is too many faults around it. Appreciate everyone's help!

                Endlinks protrude passed the lugs, dead giveaway that it's a rep.

                  Indices at 12 aren't straight.

                    Yes good move. The balance spring is a giveaway that it's a rep. Trying to work out whether it's VSF, but wouldn't we see a regulator on the balance wheel if it was?
