    Offered at 605 dollars (550 euros). Is this a good deal or should I offer less? Any extra information on this watch is very appreciated!
    Cheers

    Hello and welcome. Some friendly advice from a relatively new member too. The quality of the responses here get exponentially better, friendlier and more helpful the more information about you and what you are looking for you provide :) - so I’m sure people would be interested to hear a bit more about what you are looking for, like/dislike and your own assessment of the watch (however basic) based on your research.

    The watch dates to 1973/74 and the cal. 1012 movement is a series 1000 movement that is not considered to have been Omega’s best work. There are fans of the TV case and the dial in this one looks decent. There is some pitting of the case, discoloration of the movement and minor damage to the bracelet. All in all a decidedly average example. For around $600 you can find more interesting Seamasters or even a Constellation from around the same period. Like any vintage watch - does this one move you and can you see it on your wrist for years to come?

    Hi guys,
    First of all apologies for the very brief starting message. Was in a bit of a hurry writing this but thank you to take some time and reply. I really love this type of watches with rectangular casing and a bright colored dial. So I can definitely see this around my wrist for quite some time. I'm very new to the vintage watch game so really trying to learn a lot in short time to make the right buying decisions. I guess with this one I'm gonna go for it. Wear it a few months and sell it for a little profit perhaps (thinking 700-750 dollars). The country where I'm from, Belgium, the vintage omega are priced fairly high. You can't find any Constellation or Seamaster for under +/- 900 dollars.

    For my own education, where's the pitting? I'm practicing my skills for a future purchase.

    Have a close look at the outer groove of the back of the case - where the gasket should be - you will see pitting. It is not fatal but doesn’t help in making this a compelling buy.

    Ah, yeah, pretty obvious now that you point it out. Still lots to learn. Thanks!
