I'm looking for a reliable source for an authentic and original Omega Seamaster. I prefer something from the mid-1950's in Stainless steel. It doesn't have to be mint but must restorable. Is there a trusted source for these vintage watches? I checked out www.timeman.net, but I was told to avoid Asian dealers. This guy's payment options include accounts in Singapore and Australia and an option to wire funds via Western Union to his girlfriend in Bankok. There are several on ebay, must from outside the U.S. One fellow sells beautifully restored pieces but they fetch prices that seem to be higher than price guides suggest. I was about to pull the trigger on a watch from India but was warned against that. Whats a guy to do???
Is there a way to compile a list of websites for trusted vintage watch merchants?
