Saw this today in the $3000 range. I'm more of an Omega person but this watch speaks to me. Real or Replica?

There are a few things that give me concern about this watch. The stamp on the buckle is very poor, but buckles get replaced all the time. Of more interest is the boldness of the date wheel font, the thickness of the minute hand and the proximity of the subdials to the minute track. The differences are only slight, so they could just be manufacturing variations, but I'll defer to those that have a better eye for detail than me before declaring it a replica.

100% fake. The date font is wrong and common known fake serial number, 503959, etc
