Yeah, same. Are you sure it wasn't a Cal 550; it looks like one, and it even appears to be the number under the Omega mark? If you are interested in the Cal 510, here is a fun link. Even if it's a bit of a frankenstein, it's still a very nice looking watch, enjoy it.
Thanks DL...That really helps.. makes me breathe easier, lol..its about spotting diamonds in the rough.. I have a jeweler near where I live that refurbishes older vintage watches so I'm hoping he will be able to make it look better..post #15814 of 4831211/29/12 at 8:42pmpost #15815 of 4831211/29/12 at 8:53pmpost #15816 of 4831211/30/12 at 12:53amQuote:Originally Posted by Kai
There are a number of very nice Japanese watches in that price range. I think you will get better quality from Japan at the under $1300 price point than you will from a Euro/Swiss brand.
And even better from China...
Just buy from the proper brands.post #15817 of 4831211/30/12 at 12:55amQuote:Originally Posted by Dino944
Price of a diamond isn't simply size...color and clarity are crucial to value. Also depends on where you are buying...a similar size stone, E or D color and internally flawless from Van Cleef or Cartier would be several hundred thousand dollars...a similar size stone H or I in color S1 clarity from a local jeweler a fraction of that.
Apart from those you mentioned, cut matters as well. eg brilliant or some rare cuts.
Rare colours such as natural pink from the Argyle mine will push the price up further.post #15818 of 4831211/30/12 at 12:57ampost #15819 of 4831211/30/12 at 1:06ampost #15820 of 4831211/30/12 at 1:42ampost #15821 of 4831211/30/12 at 2:55ampost #15822 of 4831211/30/12 at 3:53amQuote:
Yes, cut is extremely important however, in my example I left it out as its much easier to see the difference in quality and price comparing 2 similarly cut stones but with variations in color and clarity.
Yes natural pink, blue, and red diamonds significantly increase the price, but those are very few and far between.post #15823 of 4831211/30/12 at 5:07amQuote:
wow thats some crazy stuff, how much would it cost if it came from Tiffany's or Cartier? (Ignoring the cost of the ring it is attached to)post #15824 of 4831211/30/12 at 6:20am
