Heuer Carrera Re-Edition or Omega Speedmaster


I'm new to the expensive watch game, and was wanting a bit of advice on getting my first watch.

I done a quite a bit of reading, including the great history of the Carrera watch article, about the different watches and I've decided on either the Heurer Carrera Re-Edition or the newer Carrera, though from reading it looks like the Re-Edition has the better movement, or a Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch.

I love the look of both watches, though I do especially like the white/silver face on the Re-Edition, though I did fancy a braclet style watch. Does anyone have any other pointers, like re-sale value (not that I think I would, but it's nice to know), collectability, difference in quality between the two watches etc.

Also does anyone have any pros and cons as to buying a used watch, other than the presitge of having it new.

And then the other question is any recomendation as to where to buy it (preferably with a nice discount), I'm in the UK, but am happy to buy on the web.

Thanks for your help in making my decision
