I have still been looking but it will be a probably 4-5 months before i get one.

I just spent a couple thousand dollars putting in wood floors in my condo so between that and the $2000 I spent having my dads watched fixed i felt i spent enough money for the time being.

Those are stunning! Probably out of my price range though.

those are great pieces...

i just bought a two tone 18k speedy this morning and don't understand how Omega can put $6.5k - $9.5k versions of the speedmaster out there against other versions of the same watch that are only slightly different and yet cost almost half as much.

then you have the used market where the prices are often half MSRP anyways.

imho that speedy above should have been a new class of watch that competes more directly with the Rolex Daytona... they could charge more for it, not that it isnt expensive enough already.

Any watch you reach the law of diminishing returns $-wise. VERY few of us actually use all the functionally, would notice if a movement is slightly better than others, etc. I am wearing an Aquatimer right now and have literally never used the chrono. I'm about to pull the trigger on a Ploprof and the deepest water it's likely to ever see is 10'. That said buy what you like and what you can afford. Don't get all caught up on the "gotta have the latest model because it's better" bullshit because honestly most people are better off with last year's model and the extra $ in the bank.

Truth be told, there's not one practical reason to spend more than a couple hundred bucks on a watch. Buying the fancy and high-priced watches that are out there is strictly an indulgence. Some folks may choose to pamper themselves with one, but that's no different than folks buying pricey cars or expensive clothes or anything else. As I've long said, the primary reason people buy high-end things is because they can, not because they need to.

All the best.

The latest 44m CAL9300 speedy's are sweet. I just picked up a titanium blue face Planet Ocean the other day. Omega is making some nice pieces these days.

I typically buy used fully documented with box and papers. On average I hold a watch for 3 years. I have made money on the last 3 watches that I sold. The last watch I profited over 1k and got to use it for 4 years. Not a bad deal. I don't mind ponying up for a pricey watch as long as I can get out of it with a small loss or better yet a profit down the line
