    Other than it being a Schumacher edition I'd say that's a pretty good deal provided it's in good condition inside and out

    I would be really cautious. The price seems too good to be true and I found fakes of that exact model online - so fakes of this model are plentiful and easily obtained.

    Was the picture you posted the one the seller sent you? If that's the case, I'd ask The Old Watch Shop if they could give you any details about the sale of the watch since it passed through them at one point. I'd ask them when it sold, what the sale/asking price was, and if the sale was local or abroad. Any answers to those questions may help you with your decision, but they may not give you any information.

    And you can ask the seller the same questions.

    And if the sale is going to be in person, ask the seller to meet you at an AD.

    Just based on such a low asking price for a freaking Omega, I'd be super, duper cautious. I could be dead wrong since I have never been in the market for an Omega and this model could be an anomaly. But I would approach this with as much rigor and skepticism as possible.

    As it states in my sig, this is just my two cents.

    Your 2 cents is probably about as dead on as it gets..;)
    Time is all we have.Might as well be as precise as possible and depend on Swiss mechanical movements.

    Also consider...if the watch is authentic, you can expect at this price you will likely need to sink several more bills into a servicing.

    Something smells fishy about this. I doubt that photo is the actual watch, as it looks like it was probably poached from the 'past sales' section of The Old Watch Shop. Somebody local to me has the exact same watch advertised for sale for $3,500, so the price you're quoting seems far too good to be true. If the seller will meet you at an Omega AD to have the watch inspected, and it turns out to be real, then you've found yourself an incredible deal.
