    Help find my gift watch

    I everyone new here and growing my watch collection. I have always loved watches but could never afford luxury watches. Last year I got my first, a Tag Carrera caliber 5, from the outlet store in CA.

    This is my wifes and I 15 year anniversary and that means a new time piece for me. I am really fond of the Omega Speedmaster Race. We cannot afford new so preowned it is. I have looked at Crown & Caliber and they have several but am not sure if that is the best site to buy from. Local shops I have checked are very high.

    I appreciate any help pointing us in the best direction.

    I would definitely keep an eye out on this forum(WUS) as well as watch recon or chrono24. Speedmasters are extremely popular so I would suggest narrowing it down to a model and year your fond of and just keep an eye out.

    I second buying here from a seasoned seller here in the US. You may pay a bit more, but you will get a good one. Ebay is okay too if you do paypal with a CC and buy the seller. Meaning only sellers with lots of watches and great feedback.

    Thanks all for your feedback! Looking in the $2500 to $3000 price range so I appreciate the feedback on drilling it down. Saw a few “racing” editions that really caught my eye, especially one with a carbon fiber face.

    seems these all seem to be solid time pieces. I was looking at some Oris watches but am now set on the Omega.

    Instead of buying used, have you considered buying grey? Personally I'd be a bit hesitant buying an anniversary watch used, much less a chrono. I'd wonder how well the previous owner kept up with maintenance, especially since chronos are (relatively) expensive to maintain.
