Re: Omega speedy 7751
In Response To: Omega speedy 7751 ()

If I understand you correctly and the watch you want to get from the pawn shop, I think you are talking about the triple date speedmaster (the one Harrison Ford wears)? Anyhow, I have that particular model and it is fantastic. Looks like a moonwatch although not a manual wind. It has evrything I or even you may need as practicality permits...month, day, date, chronograph, time, and ruggedness. I would suggest that you look at the watch more closely and try to compare it with the real one you see at an authorized dealer. Check for serial numbers, omega logos, etc. For the price of that triple date the pawn is offereing at is a great price considering I bought mine for $2 grand. (black on black with calf skin bracelet.) warmest regards, Louis

: Hello,

: Congratulations again on the site:, I have a few questions that may need your
: advice, hope you don't mind

: Here's my story, I'm considering to by the speedmaster with the 7751 in
: black, all black dial, and black leather strap. I found one here in
: Thailand at a shop which I can trust (pre-owned) They offered it to me at
: a price of 891 USD. The watch it self I would say is in a very good
: condition (approx. 90%, it should be about 9 months old, with some minor
: scratches on the case and brezel There is still evidence of the plastic
: sticker on the date setting button on the left hand of the watch.. I
: always like the look of the speedmasters especially in black and white.
: the watch looks great. However, my major concern is that, it comes with no
: warranty and no boxes, since it came out from a local pawn shop

: My questions is this: 1. Base on my assumption that the watch is in very good
: condition, is this a fair price (in your opinion what should be a good
: price for this watch)

: 2. Should I go for it or not ( Because the watch does not come with papers
: and warranty)

: 3. By the way what do you think of the seamaster GMT when comparing it to the
: seamaster bond. In terms of price per value what should be the best bet.

: I have a problem in chossing these Omegas, They are all find watches but but
: I'm a sucker for Chrono's therefore, it would help to get a secound
: opinion

: Thanks and regards

: Kris Chantanotoke
