If that's what you thought then why did you ask? I mean this is a forum for sharing information I'll grant you but that doesn't preclude you (or anyone) from doing the most basic groundwork for themselves. Had you done so you could have actually posted an informative post about why it was a fake instead of yet another request for help.

Here are images of the real deal..... from, yes, none other than... Google

Cannop is always willing to lend a hand and offer advice and information, but he has so many of us asking about the 62mas, myself included, he is hard pressed for the simple. He is a class act and one of better ones on this site.

That huge "1" was also a big tell.

There is the Schumaker, in fact there's three different versions that I know of, none of which had a moonwatch caseback. The one you have pictured is the Schumaker 3519.50.00 speedy reduced automatic with a date complication and a diameter of 39mm. The speedy moonwatch is manual wind and 42mm diameter and the reference is now 3570.50.00. The simple fact remains if the caseback says "the first watch worn on the moon" then the watch should be a manual wind chronograph with subdials at 3, 6, 9 and no date complication. All speedy pros from the 105.012 to the current models are 42mm diameter, pre-105.012 models are about 40mm diameter.

Hope this helps.

Bit dubious on them so called gens aswell, omegas have their serial numbers on one of the strap lugs, really finally stamped into the metal, so neat its almost like a laser has cut the numbers, and their size is approx half a mm in height if that.
