Hi everyone, I just want to work out some pre purchase jitters here from an Omega newbie.

So the watch I'm looking at is a 1959 Seamaster caliber 591, model number 14704. It has some dings and some patina on the face, but is in overall good working order and keeps time well. It has recently been cleaned and lubricated with a new o ring installed.

The genetman is asking $350 for the watch. I know it's difficult without looking at great photos, but I did attach 1. So as a ball park is this reasonable? Expensive? Good deal?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts. I'm just a nervous newbie who thought he'd ask the experts.

Clicking on that link, all I got was a "Invalid Attachment" notice.

Sorry, I'm new here and probably screwed something up. How about this:

Hopefully that works. It looks like a nice watch, and I don't mind the more common 591 movement, as long as it's still serviceable and somewhat reliable.

Any thoughts or comments before I pull the trigger would be appreciated.

Looks like a nice vintage watch to me. I've got two old Omega's and both are very accurate daily wear watches. I can't comment on the price because I got great deals on mine. If there are no issues with it and you like the watch, I would say pull the trigger on it. You can always negotiate the price if you think its too high. Ebay's got a ton of these and you can probably gauge the correct price from there.

Good luck.
