    This could be the dumbest question, given that the watch comes with a full set, but could I please get some opinions on whether this current version (311.30.42.30.01.005) Speedmaster Professional looks legit? It is advertised not through a shop but by a private seller an hour’s drive from me, asking $5200AUD but negotiable.

    Many sincere thanks in advance for any opinions. I have no confidence discerning an authentic Omega by myself yet (this would be my first one).

    Actually team, the seller isn’t budging on $5200 AUD, so please disregard, as I’m inclined to pass at that price.

    Oop... the seller is now open to 5K AUD, so my mental wheels are spinning again...

    $5k is the best you will do in Australia. Worth the drive in my book.

    @SRB88 has been looking for a while and they have all been over $5k

    I second @STANDY here, I've been following modern speedmaster prices in Aus pretty closely. Only last year it wasn't too hard to get a big box for $4500 and a 3570.50 for less than $4k. Come 2020 and the used speedmasters have all dried up! I think you're not going to do much better than $5k for the big box. Watch and kit look fine too.

    No just been trying to help someone else get one and not as cheap as this one. Low Aussie $$ is not helping....
