    Other than a few select models from high-end manufacturers, or rare, highly-coveted vintage pieces, watches are lousy investments.
    Instead, ask yourself this:
    Do you like it?
    Will you wear it often?
    Can you afford it?
    If the answers are yes, then it is the watch for you. To figure out if it is priced right, head on over to eBay and search for sold listings of similar watches to determine market price.

    Thanks, but TBH, I love this watch, and it is affordable, but I would like to hear whether will the value of the watch rise as the years goes.

    I don't think this is much of a risk. It's not rare but neither are Speedmasters. Wear, enjoy, look after it and you may get your money back. If you want to invest get something older.

    If you love it, can afford it, and the price is not out of line with the market, then buy it, wear it and enjoy it. As to future value, that's speculative at best. One thing to note is that this would appear to be the midsize, not the full size version of this model, but if it's the right size for you then that's all good. For your information, I believe the model is a 2252.50 (if you are searching the interweb ;))

    Serial number: 80635544
    Article ref: 22525000
    Version of movement: 1120

    Definitely the mid-sized, so case is 38 mm...

    Oh interesting, didn't realize that would have been the actual serial number stamped on the back for the watch.

    No one here can possibly know this.

    if i say yes will you buy it?
    if i say no, you won't?

    Neither makes sense.

    Midsize aren't as popular as the full size but the original owner already took the depreciation hit.

    That's about 1325 USD right? for a few hundred more and some patience you can probably find a decent 2254 which would be a better buy unless you feel it's too big for your wrist.

    This is a non-issue in my view - very common for sellers to mix up chronograph and chronometer...

    In my opinion the size is the issue, it may look and wear better on a smaller wrist but there is more demand for the full size version.

    Yes, of course. In fact I would go as far as saying that a mid-size has almost zero chance at all of being a good "investment" financially if that is important to the OP. If he means investment in terms of being a good reliable watch, and he is fine with the size, then by all means go for it.

    Assume it will need servicing. If done through Omega, look to spend upwards of $750.00. At that point, you are looking at close to what reputable sellers here are asking for more desireable full sized watches.
