Hi there ... I am brand new to this... My husband is about to turn 40 and has expressed a wish for an omega sea master. Do you think I should be looking at new ( expensive but lovely) or looking for a vintage 1972 version as this is the year of his birth. What are the implications of this?? Is it a good year for sea masters?? Totally out of my depth and I really want to make it a special much loved gift. Thought s / afvice hugely appreciated x jules
Hi and welcome to WTF! You're very considerate to take the time to join here and ask about buying your hubby a nice watch for his birthday.:thumbup1:
As to your questions, the short answer is get the new Seamaster. The reason why I say that is you seem to be looking to commemorate the occasion and a new Seamaster will have a bit of heirloom quality about it since they are desirable. The same can't be said of the Seamasters from his birth year. While not bad, they certainly weren't considered to be the top. The Seamaster of the '50s and '60s on the other hand were considered the pinnacle for Omega.
Best of luck and let us know how it turns out.:thumbup:
