Need advice on Speedmaster and Seamaster

#1 Post by sdd7820 » Sun Aug 26, 2018 6:30 pm

Hello all!

New to forum here, so great to be with you. Looking to buy a vintage Omega, and wanted to get the forum's opinion. I'm looking at getting either a Speedmaster or Seamaster with cal 321. I've seen a couple on eBay which to me look good and priced reasonably, but I am not very savvy when it comes to vintage Omega. Any info would be much appreciated. Links included below.

I don't know anything about the 321 Seamaster.

Of the two Speedmasters, the first one (1965) is more appealing to me. Has correct Dot over 90 bezel and correct dial. Case looks fairly sharp. Dial and hands are a little spotty, but these things may not bother you... it is a 50+ year old vintage watch after all. I think this watch has been listed a couple of times without selling, you might email the seller and make a lower offer.

The second one (1966) has a replacement bezel (should be a Dot over 90) from a later, 1970s or 1980s version of the Speedmaster and this greatly affects its value. Case on this one has seen some wear also. Personally, I wouldn't buy this one if you are concerned about correct parts... it might be hard to easily resell later if you decide not to keep it.

Nevertheless... the more people you ask, the more differing opinions you will get on correctness, condition, and value of these Speedmasters. My advice is to shop around, but ultimately the person you want to please is yourself. If wearing it will bring you pleasure, then buy it and wear it!

Be sure to check out the Omegaforums.net for more info.
