    Hi all. I've been watching Omega for a while. And I found two. I need your help to decide because I do not know which one I should go with (I'm desperately want one)

    Omega Seamaster De Ville - CAD 1,200
    - 1967
    - solid 14k gold case that is has not been polished
    - Inside is a cal. 550 automatic movement featuring 17 jewels.
    - Omega signed crown.

    Omega Seamaster - CAD 675 (from local Charity Thrift Store)
    - 1960 approx.
    - working condition

    Could you guys kindly advise on which one I should go for or I should stay away from the both of them
    Thank you 01717_d1RniHcl6pG_1200x900.jpg 01717_d1RniHcl6pG_1200x900.jpg 00m0m_cUZ1222znNo_1200x900.jpg 00p0p_iWgJVfC0b0Q_1200x900.jpg 00r0r_2mTAqkTzPqv_1200x900.jpg 00d0d_hdGVK4QpzJl_1200x900.jpg 00w0w_7jNeXjsTbvC_1200x900.jpg 00p0p_8cQhO2PSSS6_1200x900.jpg 00I0I_gzRZxZ2vMHy_1200x900.jpg 00K0K_59HfJFlOi76_1200x900.jpg

    Pics of thrift store watch are not good enough to tell anything. Any way to get better pics?

    Looks like the thrift shop watch may have gold hands and markers? That would be a bit off putting.

    I do love that hanger S though. And can’t beat a subdial second hand IMO. All that said, there have been plenty sold on the forum between those prices I like much better.

    Hi timseyeon,

    I was actually out at that Thrift store yesterday to take a look at that one. It's Okay, but not wow. The markers appear to be rose gold. The dial is clean, case is decent, but will need a cleaning as there is a lot of build-up. They are pretty firm on the price, it was evaluated by a jeweler who prices "higher end items" for them.

    Be patient, I have seen nicer ones out there locally.

    Cheers!
