    Some people, myself included, like the classic look moreso than the blingy look of modern Omegas. I just missed out on a mint condition 2254.50 at a good price because I couldn’t make my mind up quickly enough.

    Its a great watch, classic styling, easily and affordably serviceable and bulletproof movement for the auto version (no coaxial complexity so most watchmakers have the expertise) and the Sword Hands model are quickly appreciating in price, especially now with the big watch craze over and people going back to reasonable sizes. Ray Donovan wears one

    I think it will keep going up in price and sought after. Ray Donovan's quartz version is why I bought mine

    They've definitely gone up in the last couple years, and also the 2541.80, the 2221.80 and its black version with the really long model number
    I got super lucky and scored a 2221.80 off the 'bay for only a thousand bucks about a year ago, couldn't click the BIN button fast enough. Now they're double that price.
    I think they've become sought after because they have the classic SMP look, exactly the same build quality as the auto's, and all you have to do is whack in a new battery and get a pressure test for less than a hundred bucks every 3.5 years. Just awesome!

    Mine...

    I believe now they are selling for more than they did retail when new

    I have the adjustable clasp on the bracelet, perfect grab-and-go watch.

    I remember seeing these brand new for £890 so they're definitely on the up. As Omega update the SMP range they slide further toward vintage territory and the sword hands are now a bit of a classic that hasn't appeared on a Seamaster for years. I dont like the new skeleton hands. At night I find it hard to read the time with them. The lume on those watches is fantastic too. Plus it has the better looking bracelet which they should have put on the latest SMP model. All in all, a brilliant watch and as you say theyre becoming harder to find nowadays and the ones that do turn up seem "well used" ie battered.
