  1. Hello everyone, I posted this in the Dating watches thread first but there doesn't seem to be much activity. So I hope this is okay. Because I know absolutely nothing about watches. So I inherited this Omega Automatic Seamaster Big Seahorse from my grandad when he passed away. At least I think it's the Big Seahorse but I'm not sure. I would like to open it to find out the date myself but I'm afraid I'll damage it. I post a link to Imgur with pictures and a short video on how it looks like. I would like to find out as much as possible about it. For example if it's solid gold
  2. 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 th
  3. 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
  4. 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 lit
  5. 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 the
  6. Could anyone tell me what this watch is and what it may be worth?. I think its from the 1970s.
  7. 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?
  8. 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 i
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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 h
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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?
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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 apprec

  23. 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.
  24. 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!
  25. 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
