Actually had a nice messaging chat with the seller of these.

He asked some good questions and has ended the auctions after realizing they were fakes.

Mismatched WR on dial and case back, sub dial printing is off, sub dials are wrong, movement finishing is horrific and is incorrect movement from what I can see, wrong case back, wrong bracelet.

I spotted the issues on the Omega straight off, but I'm not that big into Tag (except of course the sublime Monaco) so I wouldn't have caught it straight out.
