    Some of the best dealers are over in the Watches for Sale section. Private sales are always good too.

    Also, starting 200 threads with idiotic questions won't get you the necessary 200 posts to sell a watch.

    I think it's more the quality and not the quantity is being called into question. Some of these are quite literally "Let me google that for you" questions, leading people to question your motives.

    Do you have something specific in mind? If you don't know the market, you might do well to get acquainted, then settle in and hunt for one you want.

    As a New York Football Giants fan for over 50 years (attended my first game in October, 1967 btw), it is my sincere pleasure to help @nygiants in his quest for a 321 Speedmaster.
    NO, DO NOT DO THIS

    Are you located in the NYC area? Member @Kringkily (George) is a very respected seller here. He lives in Manhattan. He has supplied many members with quality vintage (and new) Omegas at fair prices

    Haha, worked for me Gemini...only took like 5 years of close to daily hunting...I've become very patient sniffing out vintage amplifiers...the virtue stood me in good stead this time around :)

    Yes @Don Bocadillo, your 67 was truly a great find but Craigslist is not the place to acquire one's first vintage 321 watch. For a newbie CL is, at best, a waste of time and , at worst, a ripoff waiting to happen

    @gemini4 I think my trained nose for vintage gear and love of 'The Omega Speedmaster Professional' certainly came into play here..I smelled blood and went in for the kill how ever I'll advised it seemed at the time...being British the SAS motto springs to mind...'who dares wins'

    Besides this 145.012-67 CL pickup, have you bought any other 321s over this 5 year period?

    While it is truly outstanding to source a single 145.012-67 for a 10th of its FMV, do you realize that 321s have probably appreciated 500% in the last 5 years. As an alternative (or in addition ) to your CL strategy, had you simply purchased a few quality Speedies in 2012, you would be way ahead in appreciation vs your single CL purchase?
