Hi folks, I have a big birthday coming up next and I would like a good watch to celebrate it. My original thoughts were that as it will the 50th anniversary of the moon landings Omega will issue a anniversary Speedmaster, but I don’t think my budget would reach the asking price. So I had another thought, why not buy a vintage 1969 Omega (any model), this is how I have stumbled across this great forum and I’m hoping it will be the first in a collection, or should I maybe look at getting two watches for my money. I have about £3500 to spend and I will be totally honest and admit that my knowledge on watches is weak, but I’m wanting to learn. Talking to friend at work he said that I should be careful of vintage watches that contain a lot of O-rings as they can perish and even turn into a tar like substance, this happened to his Speedmaster mkII. So any advice on models to look for and the best place to find vintage Omegas for sale would be greatly appreciated. Cheers.
