    Well you know more then a lot of folks who buy these watches and you know enough to make sure you bought two nice genuine Omega vintage Constellations. :thumbsup:

    My decisions have been fairly easy, with all the advice and knowledge received from all you Omega veterans. I really appreciated :thumbsup:

    I'm sure Kommis will chime on it as he seems to have a few in his collection.

    Forgot to ask, what's your opinion of the F300 I found.

    F300s are not a traditional Omega movement, they're licensed from Bulova and carry a greater risk to reward ratio due to the fact that tuning forks are more expensive and difficult to service, there are some guys on here that have several and like them and know how to keep them running and maintained, then there are even more guys that wouldn't touch them with a 10 foot pole, consider it the Alfa Romeo of vintage Omegas.

    The ratio of maintenance expense to overall value is WAY out of whack with these. While interesting and a part of horological history, I leave them alone. Stuck my hand in the fire once with an Accutron Yellow Dot B and won't dare to get burned again.
