Hi All

I'm collected various brands so far but i'm always drawn to omegas, the yesteryears design.
any recommendation for vintage omegas?

Vintage omega vs vintage Rolex.

I will prefer vintage Rolex , the Rolex movement is always more better than omega.

I’ve been eyeing on vintage omega as well! Beautiful watches at reasonable price!
Would agree that Rolex is the better watch but their vintage watches just cost too much

Collectible vintages have really nothing to do with performance .... people buy & collect vintages purely because of rarity, provenance, historical significance etc etc.

It's so darn common to see everyone having a Rolex nowadays ... like AA .... now everyone can fly but actually not cheap  ;D

So yes, collecting vintage Omegas is definitely worthwhile ... prices are not as crazy but also gradually climbing.

Some of the sports watches are in atm.. but other than that it's a gamble..

Just buy something you enjoy wearing .. that's all the worth you need

I guess both vintage rolex and omega is worth collecting but you must be familiar with the watch itself to prevent yourself getting a fake watch. There are more fake Rolex out there as compare to Vintage Omega Speedmaster, can't say much about Omega Constellation/Grand De Luxe, etc.

I had a vintage seamaster before. (from early 70s). My father gave it to me to wear for like 4 months.

He sold it since a friend of his make some good offer. I miss it a lot, should've just stop him from selling. Then again, I'm not into watch at that time.

vintage Omega speedmaster is really worth collecting, especially the one with tropical dial.
