A strange incident.. “Omega” buys a “fake” watch for millions of dollars

The luxury watch manufacturer, Omega, has admitted that it was subjected to a scam after purchasing a rare, expensive watch through a public auction, only to be found to be “fake”.

The strange thing is that the Swiss company bought the watch that was of its own production and was introduced in 1957.

The company decided to buy that watch for 3.1 million Swiss francs to put it in its own museum as a “rare piece”, before discovering that this watch was fake and that its former employees were involved in the fraud.

The watch was offered by the “Philip” auction house in 2021, when it was estimated at $ 87,000, but it was eventually sold for $ 3.4 million.
