    I've been offered this Speedmaster, opinions please

    Hi,

    I normally browse the Oris and Seiko forums here but have been looking at Omega's recently.

    I am being offered a 2001 Speedmaster 3518.50.00 Schumacher - 2000 edition for £300 in good condition

    I'm guessing this a good price?? Opinions on watch??

    If that is a photo of the watch you are being offered then it looks legit. How much is it worth? Depends on recent service history, box and papers etc. Just be aware that the auto speedies can be very expensive to repair if they have an issue.

    300 pounds is a pretty nice price if its all working well. But as the poster above said, servicing my be expensive. I let my Speedy Automatic go a while ago for about $1000 and it wasnt the Schumacher edition.

    Buy the seller and if you cant see it in person;

    • Ask if he has an Ebay ID and then msg him via ebay and ask for a reply via ebay, helps identify the seller.
    • Ask for custom photos. Ask him to set the watch to a specific time and send you a photo. Helps know the pic isnt sourced from the net.
    • Ask the seller to send you a paypal payment request stating what the watch is and using words like 'authentic or genuine'. In the event you do end up getting a fake, you can show paypal what you paid for and also you credit card company.
    • Fund your paypal via your credit card.
    • Buy the seller before buying the watch...
