I need some help identifying a certain 42 mm Planet Ocean model number (see photo). It is going to be my first OMEGA purchase and a keeper. It is not the current stainless steel Planet Ocean model with the transparent case back (No.126.96.36.199.01.001), but the one just before that. It is basically the same watch but with the stainless steel case back, although I understand the newer model does have a couple of improvements to the movement like changing the hour without messing up the seconds or minuets, like a GMT).
I have seen this earlier model go for around $3500 online, but that might be the price on the gray market. Does that sound like a good price, and where is a good place or seller to purchase one? You can PM me more details.
Thanks in advance. I am looking to forward to joining the OMEGA club!
