I've had my eyes on some vintage speedmasters, thinking maybe I would look for a birth year watch of 1976 but not wanting a birth year watch so badly that I would either spend the premium to get one in great condition or get one that was more beat up than what I was interested in.
For some reason when I try on a Speedmaster, the new ones just don't do it for me with their crisp white on the dial. Then I try on one that has the tritium that has patina'd and I have a completely different experience with the watch.
Here's a photo of one on my wrist, but that's not the one I'm inquiring about. These other two photos are a serial 48.26m, dating the watch to the middle of 1991.
For those of you who know a whole lot more about this than I do, how does the watch look to you, cosmetically, for its age? I mean it looks really good to me, but I don't know what to be looking for with the lugs, being over finished or polished, the correctness of the dial, hands, bezel, Etc.
I'd be interested in your take on this example as well as what you think the fair market price would be for this specific one. Again, I'm not referring to the one that's on my wrist shot, that's just an example to see the watch on my wrist, but the other two photos in question.
Thanks a lot!
