Hello all - this is my first post. I am new to the watch collecting scene and wanting to get started with my first nice timepiece. I have found MANY things that I want, and am trying to get the best value for my starting budget ($2k - $3k). A local jewelry store recently lost their status as an AD for Omega and have placed all their new Omegas on sale at 35% off retail. The selection is pretty good, but one that catches my eye is a Speedmaster Date (I believe its a 3210.50.00). It is marked at $2275 which seems to be about the going rate for a used version on many of the usual sites. I've read many good reviews of the watch, and a few that say to 'get the Pro' which seems to be a mantra for purists. But I plan to buy what I like, so not terribly worried about those types of opinions. I am more interested in whether its a quality piece at a reasonable price. Looking for feedback from owners on this one. P.S. They have a new Moonwatch for $3400 and I'd be all over that, but I want the sapphire crystal (this one is hesalite). Thanks in advance for the replies.
