    Hi there....
    What would be the top end of the market price-wise for such a watch? Original everything, movement perfect, condition near new. With or without a recent service. Thanks

    try ebay completed listing, watch recon, and search google. Watch is worth whatever someone is willing to pay for it.

    It isn't. But for valuation questions it is requested you post pics of the specific watch in question. One man's 'perfect' and 'near new'...

    If the forum was only for professionals, you would be charged for an appraisal.
    All that is asked is that you put in a little effort, provide some pictures and some information and folks will be very willing to help.
    Cheers

    Whatever. Read the stickies at the top of this subforum. if you don't provide the info it will be difficult for people to do any more then blindly guess, and they will recommend you search on complete eBay auctions and do a search at watchrecon.com.

    By your title and no picture all I could do was put your tittle into Google

    google " Omega 14 389 "

    Heaps of things effect a price. For all we know it might be a spruced up old watch with a redial and polished that makes it look new. In this case it would be worth showing us a photo.

    Pictures are needed for a true opinion from us. As most are only happy to help

    That is correct, when you give us nothing to go on, we have little idea.
    I would speculate about $500-600. If would stop being insulted and try to give more details we are always happy to help

    BTW, it is a model 14389
    61 is the year for the case production.
    You already know the caliper

    When it comes to value for vintage watches only three words matter...condition, condition condition.

    There is absolutely no way to judge this condition without pictures.

    If we had a dollar for each request that came in without any pictures, we all could retire. There is really not much we can do to help you without at least some effort on your part to help yourself.

    So as per your request, I will not answer.

    This looks really, really good. Clean, great dial, everything original. But its a fake. You want a proper assessment? Put in some effort & people here will be happy to help. Just like how doctors won't diagnose you over the phone... those that do are quacks.

    It's for everyone, except perhaps Strawberries with a hyped up sense of entitlement. Learn some manners, treat people nice, especially when YOU are asking for help.

    OK, so lets assume you see the watch I ask about in an Omega dealer, in pristine, recently fully serviced, new old stock, by omega technicians. Everything original.... still anyone assuming its a fake? It cant be that hard to suggest an upper price bracket for a common cheap end of the market omega...

    People have bent over backwards to help this arrogant demanding poster to no avail. She only demands and makes no attempt meet simple requests.
    This over.
    The poster removed.
    Nothing more to see here.

    Title of this thread should be "How not to ask for help"
