That sort of dial paint deterioration in an Omega usually means, that the watch got flooded at some point.

“Bubble effect?” I believe that’s more popularly knows as “damaged.”

Have sent the seller a message to that effect.

Update:

Seller said,
“Hello,
ive opened the watch and ive let it serviced by mu watchmaker. No water infiltration inside,no rust, no wet at all.
It more provably a sunburst came by a overstay behind a shop window.
I don t sell damaged watch.
The dial can like or not but the watch is ok.
Best Regards
Francesco”

"Me love you long time," she beckoned.

"Not today," I responded.

"Everything," she promised.

"No thanks," I said, and kept walking.

"Awesome bubble effect," she insisted.

It looks like Omega perfected the shitty crown seal before Invicta got around to it.

Damage it is indeed. I remember one arsehole on WUS' Omega Fake Busters, who turned out to be a seller of frankenized rustbuckets. He was selling a Ploprof with a similarly damaged dial as a "Moon crater dial", the prick. I think there is a thread here on WL, where I posted a link to that. Will look for that later.
EDIT: Here it is. http://watchlords.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=44&t=36528

Sunlight can cause fading, colour change, light cracks, but not bubbles. Similarly, if paint on a wall forms bubbles, this doesn't mean one lives on the fucking Sahara, it means that the roof's all leaky.

If it has been quickly attended to after it was flooded, it is possible that the movement could have been saved from damage, i.e. it didn't have time to corrode, if it has been handled by a watchmaker only hours after, and if it hasn't been kept on the wrist (high temperature acts as a catalyst for corrosion, obviously) before it has been repaired. Or it has a fuck-massive amount of replacement parts, if not an entire replacement movement. Omega dial paint, on the other hand, is extraordinarily susceptible to water damage. I remember Dr. Ranfft's water exposure test performed on an Omega dial - a few minutes of exposure to water did to the dial just what we can see on this piece. The paint on the date disk also tends to get all yellow-ish after water exposure.

"I don t sell damaged watch", says he...says he who fucking does, the fapping ape. Crooks, crooks everywhere.

To whoever here owns a vintage Omega: if you see the crystal fogging up, immediately get the watch open, and place it in a cool and dry space, preferably with a few bags of silica gel -'when you get new shoes or whatnot, don't throw the silica away! Keep it, it saves watches.
