Well after months of searching and "cold feet" (I've heard many vintage watch horror stories), I finally pulled the trigger on a watch I've really been wanting - a vintage Omega Seamaster (see link below). Per much advise, I decided to purchase this watch due to the fact the seller provided decent pictures and the following detailed info (plus the BIN priced seemed really good):
1971 Omega Seamaster - 24 Jewels - Movement Serial Number 30705919 - Calibre 565 - Case Reference Number 166.067
I scrambled over to Omega's site and the calibre checked out ... only thing that is bugging me is that I cannot find informatio on the reference number - so now I'm a bit uneasy.
Was hoping someone could give me some insight to the validity of this watch and/or if I made a rookie move by over paying. Thank you!
