I have a question regarding a 50th birthday present for my father and after searching the threads have been unable to locate an answer to my question. I was hoping that a member in here could help me out with a vintage Seamaster question regarding price and authenticity. I saw the sticky that asked price not be discussed on the open forum so I would appreciate it if an interested member could PM me or give me the ok to PM them to possible shed some light on a new enthuesist.
Thanks in advance.

Your best bet is to post a picture or link to a watch in question then people will be able to give more info like no don't touch it or yes ok if you don't mind redials or yes great piece and maybe then if people wish to pm you then that's upto them.

If it's stated its been service then ask for some proof. Always buy the seller so check out his feedback from others. If the person can give a receipt saying it's been serviced then you can take the price of a service off the cost this will depend on who serviced it lets say omega that's $600 or any other non authorised omega service $200-$300. For some reason it says deville but does not say it on the dial. At work at the moment so hard to check through the omega database so let others comment. You can also check eBay for others previously sold to give a good idea of price.

A little high. A nice piece. I don't think the crown is original to the watch. This price point is what id expect a 14k rarer date caliber 560 in pristine condition to fetch. Nice to have b&p but that doesn't add 2 bills. Do you have movement pics?
