Hi everyone! Let me begin by saying that I am completely new to the world of fine timepieces. I'm hoping to buy a modest "starter" watch for my boyfriend (hoping to spend under $500). I know he loves the Omega Seamaster Deville, and yes, the only reason I know that is because we were watching Mad Men and he commented. It seems as if you can find nice vintage Devilles for under $1000, but that it takes patience and knowledge to avoid fakes and frankenwatches. Am I better off just buying a new lower-end watch this year and saving the real deal for next year, once I have more time, money and knowledge to work with? He's not a huge watch guy and I don't think he'll ever collect, but I do want to get him something nice. This is the dream item, but this is what I'm afraid I'll have to settle for. Is there anything in the middle? I found several Seamaster Devilles on ebay, but I'm worried I just don't know enough to make a good decision: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Auth-OMEGA-...?pt=Wristwatches&hash=item4185548296#viTabs_0 http://www.ebay.com/itm/Rare-Collec...555351519?pt=Wristwatches&hash=item3ce5e9efdf http://www.ebay.com/itm/OMEGA-SEAMA...es_Watches_MensWatches_GL&hash=item5b03be9916 My apologies if this is a dumb question. Any advice is greatly appreciated! Thank you!
