    MODEL NUMBER PLEASE

    That is the Seiko SNK381, I have it on metal but it looks much better on a leather strap. Chronograph.com or Roachman might still have some for sale.

    It's a great looking watch if you have the right sized wrist to wear it

    What is a good AD price on the classic Omega Speedmaster? Is there more than one kind of Speedmaster, and if so, what are the differences in aesthetics, mechanics, and price?

    You can purchase the 3570.50.00, otherwise known as the "Moon Watch" from an AD for about 30% off MSRP (MSRP = $3850, expect to pay $2695 new). This is the manual wind, hesalite (acrylic) crystal version, and is the most true (of the current line up) to the original.

    Other versions include:

    3572.50.00 (Hesalite crystal, sapphire display caseback, no longer in production)
    3573.50.00 (Sapphire crystal, sapphire display caseback)
    3576.50.00 (Sapphire crystal, sapphire display caseback, moonphase and date functions)

    I really recommend the 3750.50.00 simply because it's most true to the original, and the hesalite crystal is just beautiful. The hesalite crystal is more prone to scratching, but you can easily polish it with polywatch, or even toothpaste.

    Here's mine for reference:

    PM me if you'd like info on a reputable AD, or you can do more research on http://forums.watchuseek.com/index.php

    Random question: has anyone bought a watch from Lussori in the past? I'm close to buying one from them, but would prefer to hear of customer experiences before I wire them $$$.

    I'm not a big fan of chronographs but that's nice.

    Some vintage

    Absolutely gorgeous but too big for my tastes. If you've got Paul Bunyan forearms then go for it.

    If you don't mind buying used I'd go that route. There are quite a few on the watch forums. If you go retail you should easily be able to get 30%. I'd go with the sapphire version mostly because I don't like hesalite nor do I like having a scratched up watch face. But, I'm not a purist and don't really give a shit about being "true to the original" or whatever that means.
