In general, I'd say (from your pics) that things look OK overall, but I can't give you a guarantee. That being said, you could try searching sites like the following which have Omega catalog scans of that general time-frame:

safe to say very nice, and very real. The common sense issue here is I have never seen a fake vintage omega like this. They do not make them.

My eye says definitely real. Not being familiar with this specific model I can't be sure about the print on the dial or the hands.
The case and movement are definitely real omega items.
