    I recently purchased this Omega Geneve for $455 on Ebay. The seller looked reputable and had a lot of good feedback. I was wondering if this was an overpriced purchase for a Genve and if it is a good watch for being the first of my collection. I'm a newbie and would appreciate any advice!

    Here is the listing:

    Great condition OMEGA Geneve Ref. 136.0102 made ca. 1975:

    Genuine, high accuracy OMEGA Cal. 1030 manual wind movement.

    CASE: Genuine, solid stainless steel, with glossy & brushed finish;

    CASE BACK: Genuine, stainless steel, signed and numbered, screwed caseback;

    SIZE: Width with crown 39mm, without crown 36.2mm, height with strap lugs 44mm, thickness with crystal 10mm.

    DIAL: Genuine OMEGA, never restored, "electric blue", in very good condition.

    HANDS: Genuine, white, never restored.

    CROWN: Genuine Omega signed crown;
    CRYSTAL: Genuine, armoured hessalite, signed with Omega logo.

    STRAP: New aftermarket orange leather strap.

    I never question if I paid the wrong price after buying something, it isn't productive. Your due diligence before purchase is all that is important.
    I have no idea of the market price of your watch, others will chime in. But if you are satisfied with it that is really all that matters. Enjoy it.

    Good looking watch. Great wearer, but it probably is due for a service, so factor that into your purchase cost.
    You can discuss price all day. If you overpaid for this, it wasn't by much.

    Brushing is right, sharp edges, original lume seems present...

    It's a nice enjoyable watch with a nice dial. Case is a little bit worn out and refinished. Movement has been a bit neglected.

    You should've asked this question before purchase anyways.

    I think I disagree with the case being worn out.

    I think it looks like a really beautiful watch that you could wear ever day. You could go out and pay the same amount of money for a modern watch but what fun would that be. I think you got it for a great price and health to wear. Good luck.

    You would struggle to get an example like that new, so if it is a 'wearer', you got a great deal.

    I think you scored nicely for an under $500 Omega that'll look great on your wrist.

    Looks good value. As others have said, get it serviced and just enjoy it.
