  1. Hello, one and all. I am new to this forum or come to think of it any watch forum for that matter and I would be looking a little advice from you fellow members regarding my Omega watch. The watches I am looking at are the below, now these watched will be secondary market used or as new condition box and papers I have researched these watches already and from what I have learnt is the steel watches hold their value more than the gold @ steel offering, the sped master is not unlike the Rolex Daytona I know it would not be in the same league but this is not the issue as I have read that the Omega are a better watch in some instances regarding the diver watches and the Omega are very accurate with better workings than Rolex and that info is from some well-regarded watch enthusiasts. I already own a Rolex Sea Dweller 126600 and would like to own an Omega just to see how it compares to the Rolex as buying a second Rolex would be out of the question but I could stretch to an Omega and why not. I would like some advice on which watch to purchase if it were you buying the watch which one would you choose not as investment but to wear and possibly in time it may gain in value so come on give me your thoughts my hears is set on either the speed master, or the steel Seamaster in steel I don’t know about the gold but that price on the gold Seamaster is rather tasty. Omega Speedmaster Racing 44,25 MM 329.30.44.51.04.001 £5207 Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Chronograph Steel/Sedma Gold 44mm 210.30.44.51.01.001 £5041 Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Chronograph Steel/Sedma Gold 44mm 210.22.44.51.01.001 £4950 Thanks to all who reply.
  2. Hello all Firstly, thank you for allowing me access to your forum. I've always liked to have one "nice" watch since I treated myself coming out of my apprenticeship in early 90's. Through the years I cycled through a few but nearly always one at a time .... until fairly recently. 2 things happened in quick succession which found me in receipt of 3 "new" watches. I inherited a gold mechanical wind Bulova from grandfather / father. I got burgled and splurged on a new Omega Seamaster with the insurance money covering my pinched Tag Aquaracer Calibre S. I spotted the same model Tag Aquaracer at an auction and had to buy again as my missus had actually bought for me. It has started a really keen interest in movements & history of the manufacturers. My small collection has grown a bit and I'm always looking for my next purchase. Look forward to discussing more on the forum. Regards.
  3. It's been a few months since my last "haul" so I thought I'd update because its lockdown and I'm that bored Plus I think it might be nice to have them posted somewhere so if someone ends up owning one of them they can see a little of the "history" (if you can call it that). To keep it tidy I won't list absolutely every watch, as I sold a lot and truth be told forgot about them (e.g. Tissot Seven Seastar, 50s Doxa, Lanco etc), just the more recent ones I quite like(d) or still have. I will put an asterisk* by the ones that I've since sold. 1952(?) Tissot Visodate Seller had very little info, I placed a low starting bid and no-one else did. I actually planned to sell this straight away for a nice profit bit the case is a nice style, incredibly clean and nice patina to the dial, have had it . Keeps okay time, some days its spot on, other days it runs a little fast. 9K Gold Omega*: My first ever Omega which was 9K Gold and came on a mint condition genuine Omega leather strap! Differently to the Tissot above, I actually planned to keep this and service it as buying an Omega had been a big milestone for me but truth be told, when I received it I just didn't like it. It simply wasn't my cup of tea and I soon sold it on. Medana Automatic* Nothing amazing, but a cool flip/story to it. Seller listed a job lot of non-runners and I offered less and said all I wanted was the Medana. They replied and obviously just wanted them gone and took £20 for the lot. To my surprise, another of the watches in the lot fetched about £80 with a new battery in it. Not taking fees into account I made about £120 on them all including this. The Medana itself didn't run, it would just run for as long as I was shaking it and stop immediately when I did. I shook it for about 5 minutes to keep it going just long enough to run on its own then manually wound rotor. A bit of regulating and I had it running well and keeping decent time. The downside of this piece is the case was a rather tacky plastic which I mentioned when selling. Omega Seamaster Cosmic* My second ever Omega and my first live non-ebay auction, part of a job lot. I had hoped to sell the rest of the job lot and get the total price down to put towards fixing this up but alas nothing else really sold (other than some pocket watches) and I ended up selling the Omega instead for an okay profit. It seemed to run but had no crown to test it and glass was the wrong size. Some damage to the dial but overall okay and original strap too! Well worth fixing up even at the buyers price! Seiko 6139-6002 Okay so right off the bat I know a lot of you will be saying "thats aftermarket" about parts of this watch and given the condition I'd be very surprised if a lot of it wasn't. It was my birthday, I was stuck in France as lockdown was just beginning and I wanted to teat myself. It was ridiculously cheap, non runner but has some life in it. A lot of fun to wear on a nice day, hope to get a proper bracelet for it soon. Seiko 7a28-7030 No sooner had I bought the above Seiko, the "quartz version" (or closest thing to it) popped up for the same price 'Buy It Now'! Evidently has had a battery leak but movement looks spotless and has the original bracelet. The seconds hand sometimes does a full sweep when inserting the battery but no signs of life other than that and minute hand is loose. Hope to get a replacement dial one day and have it serviced. Listed it for sale a bit high but only as I'm in no rush as I may keep it if it's still with me after lockdown. Neva/ Heba Nothing too exciting, saw it quickly and put a bid of 99p on, actually forgot about it. What I didn't check was the economy level postage extortionately priced at £7-8 and actually cost them about £2 and sent in an envelope. Ling 21 Prix "Chronograph"* Had seen these about a lot and always wanted to check one out for myself, however I knew the movements were cheap and not really worth the prices they sell for when sellers suggest they are "quality chrongraphs". In actual fact they don't function chrongraph, the buttons simply stop and start the seconds hand, no resetting. Apparently they were often used by conmen who sold them as the luxury watches they appear to be - this one even had forged 18K Gold markings on both caseback and strap. Nice to wear still, a bit of fun. Omega Megaquartz* Had seen this one sell a couple times and when it got listed again 'Buy It Now' for a bit higher I thought I'd take the gamble as a blue dial Omega had been on my list. After some research I found that these can be very costly to fix even without the battery leak issue and decided to sell it on to bring in some funds during lockdown. Dial looks really nice in person, a sort of metallic striped effect and a good feel to it. Andre Bouchard Venus 188 (Valjoux 7330) Chronograph I saw this pop up on eBay and quickly offered a bit lower than the already rather low starting price - a rather cheeky tactic I tend to use when starting negotiations to gauge where a sellers head is at regarding price. Seller replied to say they actually enabled offers by mistake but would honour that mistake by meeting me in the middle. After shipping and import fees I paid about their starting price. Wants a top pusher but runs absolutely spot on and keeps great time! 1940's Everite King Having just accidentally destroyed a similar looking 1940's Oris which I'd grown rather attached to, I bought this to replace it. Sold as a non-runner, have been well advised it likely just wants a new mainspring. It's in absolutely fantastic condition and came on nice vintage leather strap. Have been told some loose history about it which I've been asked not to disclose, but certainly nice to have a bit of a story to it and I hope to find out a bit more if I can.
  4. I'm a relatively new watch collector, but really like vintage Omega watches. I've tried to buy original and good quality from a couple of watch dealers/repairers that I've got to know and have even risked a couple off eBay. My collection includes Geneve, seamaster and constellation in 18ct and a seamaster in stainless steel. I'd really like to buy an original black face watch, but I've been warned that some that are for sale are standard faces that have been repainted (I was told that they do the same to make them look military?). Any advice on how I can find a genuine watch: were they limited to specific models that I could look for? Should I consider one that has been repainted? Many thanks for any info or suggestions.
  5. Could anyone tell me what this watch is and what it may be worth?. I think its from the 1970s.
  6. I've found an used Omega Speedmaster Day Date 3521.80.00 going for £1200, looking to get it for my old man & it looks like a bit of a steal for this price. Has a few marks of light wear but nothing too bad. What do you guys think? Steal? Overpriced?
  7. Hi, I'm trying to decide on a piece I can wear for everything. This is my first watch and at the age of 31 I am running out of reasons not to buy a watch for myself. I can't find a fiancé which comes with an engagement offering, or parents that will produce a graduation present. So I'm looking at either a more practical Bell & Ross BR02/BR03 Diver or a Blancpain FF (2200-6530-66) or a IWC. Any other suggestions welcome. All I know is I don't want something too recognisable . Would like something a bit different. The Blancpain FF with the black bezel is where I'm currently leaning, thanks in advance. https://ibb.co/Ypw8nL3 https://ibb.co/T0G0X9g https://ibb.co/8BYm5nP https://ibb.co/mGbkqfC https://ibb.co/7kYVg4g A D E E free online picture hosting
  8. Hey I have an omega Constellation and was thinking it would look great on leather. does anyone no of any sites that do straps for them and if not how to put a modded strap on and keep it attached? Below are some pics Many Thanks Kane
  9. Hello, I'm a newby, I have a circa. 1979 Omega Constellation DD 368 0855 with steel & gold bracelet. A small screw or bolt is missing from one of the link joints. I have no idea how to identify it, or find a replacement part. I will attach some Imgur images, the first couple show the watch, the rest show the bracelet and highlight the area where the missing part is. The adjacent links on this side of the bracelet have screw heads, I presume this is the same and just worked loose. I need help in sorting this out, rather than go to an Omega shop and be stared at. I have a small collection of NOS 1970s Omega watches, this is my hands down favourite. It is so 70s but also has the proportions of an Apple watch. All help gratefully received!

    Hi there. Looking for some advice from ones more knowledgeable than myself. I recently turned 30 and have threatened treating myself to a decent timepiece for years. But now it comes to buying one I'm struggling to decide. I ideally want one that won't absolutely haemorrhage money once purchased and maybe even one for a sound investment for the future. So looking for some suggestions or even warnings of what to avoid. Willing to push upto 6k mark at the very most at the time being. For a bit of context the watches I like at the moment are:- Bretling Superocean Heritage II Rolex GMT master, black/blue bezel Omega speedmaster Omega Seamaster planet ocean 600m Open to any suggestions or advice.
  11. Hi guys. I've recently developed a full blown watch obsession and whilst i have been reading/researching on the net, i have to admit i could do with some help. I currently own several quartz and one automatic (fossil), not including my jaeger vintage pocket watch. My next buy i wanted to be a swiss made automatic. I've picked out 4 and wanted to know people's thoughts on these watches and if they are worth the money. 1 - tossot pr100 powermatic 80, blue dial. £475. I recently saw the quartz version and it didnt feel as heavy or as nice as i thought it would for the price (i have a £200 diesel that feels loads better) 2 - TAG HEUER CARRERA CALIBRE 5 MENS 41MM AUTOMATIC DAY-DATE WATCH - blue dial. Looks really nice, but £2000 for a tag? Which made me think of number 3 3 - omega, de ville, blue dial £2550. But only 3atm for the price puts me off. 3/a - omega seamaster aqua terra blue dial £4000. Love this watch but i can by a rolex for similar price (what do i do) 4 - rolex oyster perpetual £4300, chanoagne coloured dial. I wanted the watch to look dress smart and that ruled out omega seamaster for me which was £2500. Cliffs, which watch is best value for money, best investment, best build etc, looks best? Tissot Tag Omega de ville Omega seamaster Rolex Thanks
  12. Hello Forum; Tim here - new member, so please forgive me if I haven't approached this query the correct way!! I have been bequeathed an "OMEGA Seamaster Cosmic 2000" wrist watch, and I am looking for any documentation / instruction manuals that may be available for this particular timepiece. It is a very early 1970's model, purchased in Switzerland. (We think 1972 or thereabouts) If anyone has this information available and is willing to share it with me (or point me to where I would find it) it would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks; Tim. (Victoria, Australia.
  13. Hi there! My grandfather left me and my twin brother two pocket watches. I've only got 1 picture of them at the moment, but can get more of them. I was wondering if anyone could tell me a little something about them. Best regards Mats Agbo
  14. Good afternoon all, It's my first post but I'm an avid reader of the forum and find the information and knowledge of the various contributors fantastic. I love vintage Omegas and have managed to assemble a small collection but am always looking to add to it. I have come across this Constellation but haven't seen a dial like it before so am wondering what your thoughts are on its legitimacy? Any information would be much appreciated. Regards
  15. Hello all, I am new to the forum so my deepest apologies if this is in the wrong place. I've recently purchased an Omega Constellation. I've been a long time lover of this watch and finally took the plunge. I'm going to take it for a little service in the coming days, but wondered if any of you wonderful horologist types could tell me about it? I know there are so many variation's on the constellations Thanks! J
  16. Hi, I have just brought a 9ct gold Omega Geneve. I am currently trying to work out if the dial is genuine. I have the manufacturer number :BL1325017 (this was with on the papers I brought the watch with). I have found a couple examples of pictures of this watch but none of good quality so I can tell the detail on the dial. So I have two question as to whether anyone has a picture of this watch or knows where I can possibly find one? and whether the two watches with the same manufacturer number can be different?
  17. Hello, First I would like to say, it has been very nice looking around your message board and reading the immense information and viewing a lot of fine watches. I've reached the conclusion it would be appropriate and polite to join as a member. I hope to be of some use, if possible. If just for someone to discuss watches with. My name is Alex and started acquiring watches when I was around 10yo. Primary sources were/are flea-markets, yard/garage/driveway sales, antiques stores, and outdoor markets. I had never bothered to learn a great deal about my watches, and I generally lack focus with anything I collect. I intend on rectifying this problem. I do antiques restoration at an antique store near where I live. Furniture is my specialty; wood-work, veneer work, structural and cosmetic work. However, with that said, I do occasionally work on items not related to antique furniture. Anything from antique pocket watches to modern big-case watches, and anything in between, have sparked my interest. Time pieces fascinate me to a great extent. I have always been abnormally obsessed with time. You willl likely never see me without a wristwatch on or pocket watch in my pocket. The only watch I have in the collection that doesn't run is the Omega Constellation Chronometer. It is my luck that the Constellation was one of my dream watches and the mainspring broke soon after I bought it. Oh well, perhaps at some point I will be able to send it to Omega for a repair and spa treatment.:) Anyhow, my primary objective in joining the site is, learning as much as I can about the watches I have and watches I'd like to have. Thank you very much for accepting my request to join and am looking forward to reading some more of your great information and data. And, so you won't need to ask, here are some not-so-great photos of my watch collection. Please forgive the poor images. I have a ruptured Achilles tendon in my left leg, which makes getting up and down somewhat arduous at best. Hopefully I will recover soon enough to take some nicer images of the watches. It appears as if my assertion that the photos would follow the post was wrong. Hopefully it is fine the way it is.
  18. Hi everyone, I hope you’ve been enjoying the bank holiday weekend. My name’s Nick and I’ve joined the forum today hoping to learn a lot from other members. Currently I’ve got a Michel Herbelin that was given to me for my 21st (10 years ago now) but my wife has recently uncovered her late fathers old Omega Constellation - still ticking but in need of a bit of TLC as it hasn’t been worn since 1988! It’s beautifully understated and I’ll be looking to get it restored as it holds significant sentimental value! Nick
  19. Hi guys just wondering I have a problem with my Omega Omatic Seamaster it is showing that needs a battery which I believe is rechargeable I have had on the watch winder for about 2 hours and it has now stopped then I wound it up 30 turns and it worked again then stopped isn't that why it has this rechargeable battery so when the watches power goes down the battery kicks in it has also shown the second hand skipping ever 5 seconds that the tell needs new battery if any of you know what battery and where to buy one it is and could I fit myself and best way to do it would be much appreciated. Thanks in Advance Peter

  22. Hello all I have an old Omega dating from 1965, can anyone ID it? It recently went in for a service repair at Omega (£400), I just ontacted them for further info and they said they would need it back! I'm hoping someone here can shed some light, I cant see anything on the back to give me a clue.
  23. Exciting day today - This old fella getting was getting serviced back home as a birthday gift from my parents: mmm, what could it be?? box looks promising.. Quite a bag of bits there.. There it is! My grandfathers Omega no less, acquired sometime late in the war. Had new crystal, crown and hands in this lot and that's a brand new Omega strap & buckle fitted, but the dial is all original and case is cleaned up but still suitably battle scarred in places. Love it!
  24. Hi guys, I'v been offered this nice watch, however I'm at a loss regarding the watch price as I specialize at our local Czech watches, Omegas are not my point of interest, but sometimes I venture out of my field of experience Tried eBay and various price, but no clue. Could somebody please suggest a price? Thanks
  25. I picked up a really nice Omega Dynamic today. Only problem is I cant keep a bracelet unscratched for more than about 45 seconds so I want to put a band on to preserve the original. Only now have I discovered that 19mm bands are only slightly less rare than Chicken lips. The new band is only a place keeper so dont want to spend more than £20 to £30 can anyone point me in the right direction. If you dont come up with any ideas I will stick it on a pink £1.99 NATO IMG_20180119_181448289 by Stuart, on Flickr IMG_20180119_181442641 by Stuart, on Flickr IMG_20180119_181420354 by Stuart, on Flickr IMG_20180119_181411740 by Stuart, on Flickr
