    Omega Speedmaster 105.003-64

    Comes with 7912 bracelet, with No 6 ( Non Omega) end links

    Serial Number: 22824007
    £15,000.00 bank wire and delivery included USA / Europe

    1-P2030004-002.ORF.jpg

    Provenance:
    Bought by me from a Hong Kong Vintage Dealer in 2012.
    It comes with Omega service receipt from 2011.
    Comes with an Omega Extract dated December 2010.
    It has remained in temperature and humidity controlled environment since. When I bought it it had hand made endlinks, so I replaced them with No 6 endlinks that I am sure are repro because they lack the internal ridge.

    Condition:
    The dial is very fine, all original. Lume is original, and better than most 105.003's. 1-P2030001-003.jpg

    Original Lume, on a fine dial. This shape lume is normal for 105.003. The body of the dial is in exceptional condition, and the minute track is complete and undamaged.

    Dot Over 90 Bezel. Dent at "100" 1-P2030002-003.jpg Worst view of the dent!
    Movement is in good condition:
    1-P2030008-004.ORF.jpg

    And all correct for year.

    1-P2030001-004.jpg
    Healthy column wheel, screw heads undamaged.

    1-P2030010-004.jpg

    Inner case back with number, no corrosion, and correct dust cover.


    Correct Specification of pushers and crown.

    1-P2030002-005.jpg

    7912 bracelet is serviceable but slightly loose. In use I did not notice.

    What is wrong with this watch?

    The bezel, while excellent, has the dent at 100.
    The bracelet is original, but slightly tired. That said before I sell any of my older watches, I always wear them for a while to check everything is ok, and to be honest this bracelet is comfortable and serviceable.
    The endlinks are not Omega made, but very close. Better than none, obviously.
    Otherwise the only thing wrong is the price.
    But compared to the rubbish 105.003's sold recently, its so far away in terms of quality and provenance that I think that is right.
    This watch is honest. Unmolested.

    SALES TERMS

    I only sell to refocus my collection. I am not motivated by profit and so I have no reason to embellish or over describe. I have been on ebay since 2002 with 100% feedback. I have bought and sold a few watches on www.OmegaForums.net and you can find my feedback by searching my username. I am the author of Speedmaster101.com and protecting my reputation is more important to me than selling off a watch. I am not a watch dealer, I make my money elsewhere, watches are my pleasure.

    Price includes insured delivery in the USA and UK, and will include delivery elsewhere unless you have some expensive needs. I can usually help with delivery.

    Returns are welcome if you don't cost me anything to get it back to me and the watch is in the same condition as it arrived with you.

    I am a private collector who rarely sells. When I do, most of the time my watches sell very quickly, and to the first person that PM's me with the words, "I will buy this watch now at your price".

    In the past several people have been upset because although they are the first to reply, they ask if I can do a better price - meanwhile someone has agreed my price.

    I am not in the slightest bit offended by offers, but remember that they will only make sense if the watch remains unsold after a few days.

    Delivery can usually be facilitated almost anywhere

    Payment
    Payment by Bank Transfer is required for these larger amounts, I propose we both exchange ID copies and speak by phone to feel comfortable. Face to face is always welcome. Paypal is expensive, and leaves the seller vulnerable to chargebacks. If you feel you need this sort of protection from me, I completely understand, but will happily work with you until you do, rather than use paypal.

    watch looks great, except lume on the dial! If I found this watch somewhere for sale I would say it has been relumed! badly relumed!
    but I know that you are expert, so I believe you.

    I am not. It was hard to resist considering it as a possible purchase, which would have shattered the wallet like never before.:confused:

    Congrats to the buyer and the ever-exemplary seller! :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thank you for all the interest - this watch was agreed sold in a few hours of posting and now completed.

    (And yes, buyer used the famous words that makes sure he gets it...)

    Thanks to all for interest and OF for a great trading environment that introduces like minded people.

    I keep eying ebay, and then I remember how easy the people here are to deal with.
