Hello all- I want to introduce myself as a new Omega addict. There- I’ve admitted I’m sick with the disease for my therapy group. I came across this sight a month ago to ask what others thought of my $300 purchase of a beat up redialed Seamaster. The members here were very courteous in telling me I overplayed and made a mistake. The mistake Seamaster in now being restored so I am paying more for what it is worth but I feel like I am the new custodian of the watch and it deserves a 2nd chance. It will wear well on my wrist and be passed to my son or daughter. After being burnt on my first deal I am going to test the waters again but this time very cautiously. I have been actively researching Speedmasters. Especially on Speedmaster 101. I am fortunate enough to head to Hong Kong for work this week and will be checking out some legitimate vintage watch stores in Hong Kong. I hope to purchase my first 861Speedy. I have considered purchasing a new Speedy but my heart tells me to go with something that has character. I hope to come back and become part of the Speedy group. Wish me luck. -Steve.
