    I don't think he needs to go to Geneva, the watchmaker was telling him his speedy would have to be sent to Switzerland for service directly from Omega. At least I think that's what the listing is trying to say.

    Original bezel looks lovely, it's a shame they want to change everything :(

    I think the two cases and guarantee of original parts & papers is what has this auction so high.

    While it might seem crazy to bid without movement shots, consider that with papers you can compare the serial # on the movement to the one on the papers once the buyer receives the watch.

    If they don't match eBay will let you return the item for "not as described" as long as the seller said it was all original.

    If the movement is correct but beat up, well, yes that would be unfortunate and leave little recourse for the buyer.

    I agree that the papers and original parts are intriguing, but the seller is very clear that the watch does not run at all. I think that is a little troubling as he also states that the most recent repair work was done in Switzerland only about 6 years ago. I know that these watches require servicing at approximately that interval anyway, but it doesn't speak highly of the watch' treatment recently that it has completely stopped working since it returned from Omega and a complete overhaul.

    'Completely stopped working' may be due to something like a broken mainspring, right? if that is the case it would not speak at all about recent watch treatment, and might just indicate the service 6 years ago did not include replacing it.

    Without a proper inspection (beyond just a picture of the movement) it is impossible to determine why the watch doesn't run.

    The main spring could be broken. A screw could have shaken loose and wedged itself between one of the wheels. Or (hopefully not) the balance could be completely borked. Or worst of all the whole thing could be rusted and seized.

    Quite the gamble.

    Ah never mind found a thread on this. Saw that this is definitely a bad watch. Is it so hard to find a decent 321?

    There are actually two different threads on this one, that's how wild it is out there these days! $8k, crazy I think.
