    If you pass on dibs I'll meet the high estimate.....seriously, I think these are intentional to drive bidding

    Yeah, I put in a bid beforehand - based on the Price guide on http://speedmaster101.com/price-chart-2/, I'd expect $5200 for a running example, so working back from that, £4kish for a running example. So I thought, it might take £1.5-2k to get it back to life and working well, so I figured £1600 would be the most I'd want to pay at auction...

    Don't forget, the chart refers to head only. This watch appeared to have the original 1506 with 16 end links.
    Plus I would expect STS to work their magic for way less to bring it back to life.

    But for sure the bracelet should be added on top of the price guide.

    So £6765 plus ~£1000 to get it up to scratch, for what is likely to be an average example patina-wise with quite badly scratched bezel. Seems too rich to me for a 105.012

    Crickey - I had a bid in at £2200. Well off the mark. Unless this is the new benchmark. In which case I better let my insurance company know!

    This was another original Omega surfacing in auction house close to me . I've been away for week and was panicking when I saw it and it's guide price and secretly hoped this would go sky high so I didn't feel I'd missed out. Personally I would have thought £3000 hammer was where it would be . Surprised auction house hadn't put more photos on the sale page. Nothing gets past the Omega. Hunters !!
