    Smart first buy. I was also considering purchasing it. Solid piece you don’t see every day, at a bargain price, from a well-established, trustworthy seller. Unlike some of us, I don’t think you’ll be experiencing any buyer’s remorse. Cheers!

    Welcome aboard! I also have looked at that watch several times so I'm glad you bought it and removed the temptation.

    You are a lucky man- that’s the way to start a collection! Keep stalking the classified’s here and skip the eBay street bazaar until you really know what you are looking for and you can save yourself a ton of frustration, time and money.

    Thank you.

    The reason I joined Omegaforums was due to searching eBay, Etsy, and Chrono24. I saw to many scammed. Additionally, I learned individuals will buy true Omega’s, take a certain piece out and replace it with a knockoff piece. They will then return the piece to the seller and receive their refund. They do this many, many times, and, in a short period of time, they end up with a nice collection of authentic parts of the movement.

    I heard many good things about this site, so here I am.

    Thanks everyone!

    That sounds like way too much work to be fun, or profitable.

    I cannot nor do I want to understand the reasoning behind it.

    I had such a great experience here, which is why my next timepiece will be purchased here also.

    Did you see the black dialed one that Norman has? All of us are in a tizzy over that one.

    Rosenthal,

    That is a handsome time piece. Very nice.

    I am scouting for a Speedmaster and DateJust.

    lol! James please,
    If that’s in your list- perhaps you should wait until after you no longer need those services to acquire a Speedmaster and Datejust ;)
