It definitely takes a lot of homework, but if I manage to find a legit pie pan constellation at a decent price, I'll be psyched.

i want a constellation too, and I'm so frustrated trying to figure out what's legit and what's a decent price. maybe it's not worth it. Quite a beautiful and classic looking watch though. if you find a legit, solid source please post where.

When it comes to buying vintage watches, one word of advise..."Buy the seller not the watch". Reputable sellers will try to disclose to the best of their knowledge if a vintage watch has a refinished or original dial. Vintage watches are known for their original dials along with the aged patina. Anything that looks new, is probably a redial. Redialed vintage watches are significantly less desirable than their original dial counterparts.

Try not to buy on L'ebay, and seek out a vintage watch dealer. Sometimes it is very hard to figure out if a dial is original or refinished. If it's too good to be true, then it usually is.

Vintage Omega watches are really cool. Here's my one and only and all original Omega Seamaster Automatic Day Date, caliber 1020, model 366.0845 from 1977 ...........

It should be less than $300. Its just a simplistic watch that tells time (I know because my dad used to have one).

Never did. In the 70s I replaced it with a Timex as my every day watch.

I recently listed a vintage SEAMASTER on ebay and was hoping you could shed some light on the value...I've had several offers right off the bat. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
