Hello,

I am looking to buy a 6B 159 Omega/Jongness/Jagar Watch. Doing some research, there seems to be lost of different variants, my main concern is buying an authentic and original one, that has not been tampered with. I will put a link at the end to one that I am looking at, if anyone could give me and hints as to if they think its original and a good buy, or if there are any tell tales signs of it been messed with, as well as useful information generally, I'd be very grateful :-) Thankyou in advance. https://ibb.co/JH7WRYq

Back Case (2292)

Carrying on with my research, I believe it can be dates 1944-1947, however I cannot find another similar watch with the same face. 

 

The outer face of the back cover has no engravings or markings, however I read read on another forum that it was possible that these were sometimes deliberately removed?

My first impression when I saw the dial was that it is not the original dial or the dial had been restored / repainted

Without the military engravings on the back of the case it is more likely that it isn't an issued watch, although as you say the back could have been replaced. My view? Keep looking, you can expect to pay £2,000 to £4,000 depending on condition and provenance for one which ticks all the boxes
