lol, i meant i picked it up from one of our offices, to bring it to a buyer. not a personal purchase, for work. we bought it a few weeks ago.

you were kinda close, that little rock is worth well over 100k.

paid about $250 for it.. I already know its a fixer upper, but I liked the simple design. I was not skeptical at first until I started doing research on the movement and being I cant tell what kind of Omega that it is, made it hard. Could not find anything out about the movement research wise so that made me doubt it after the fact. I know, not wise.

well I intentionally stayed on the low end as I know that high color and clarity could easily make it twice what I quoted... not knowing it wasn't personal I was trying to error on the side of "not being an ass" LOL! but ya a 5ct can easily be 6 figures... so what chocsosa said...

Hi Kid,

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.

I would assume you found Omega's database during your research, but if not, go here and you can search the number on the case if it's from 1946 or after.

Hi Stitch,

Always fun to look at diamonds. Just curious, what's the color & clarity?

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.

Nothing impressive, but looks nice to my eye.
I am a big fan of this as well:
Please feel free to recommend! Leather bands are preferred as I find them more comfortable.

That Orvis is nice!

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.

 Hi Stitch, thanks for the info.  I developed an interest in diamonds when shopping for an engagement ring years ago.  Nice stone, I'm sure it will go to a good home.
