    Crown and Caliber is reputable.
    There are reputable sellers on the Omega Forums too. Read the reviews and see who is selling frequently. I can give you the name of the fellow I bought my Speedy from. Great service, no complaints.

I have bought just about every watch through watchrecon.com, which pretty much searches the major forums for listing. But ideally you do a little background work after to make sure how old the sellers account is and how well trusted he is, et.

      If you're interested in a speedy 3575.20 or AT 8800 blue in 38mm, I have a friend who is probabaly interested in selling. If you need help picking out something or searching through the forums, feel free to dm me and I can help

      Thanks! I’ll look into those and will reach out if there’s interest. I generally prefer slightly bigger than 38mm though. Thanks for the site recommendation!

        Sure, let me know. Here's a shot from earlier today, Cold enough to wear a suede strap on a short hike!

          Greetings from the third-world state of California, where smoke fills the air and electricity is optional! Today I’m wearing my apocalypse compatible self-winding, lumed marker Seiko SNK805 on a rubber strap. Great for those days when you don’t have the option to charge a watch or use a light!

                I stopped in the Swatch store here a few weeks back. They have some looking watches. I didn't end up purchasing anything, but was nice to stroll around the store, looking at all the different and unique models.

                    My wife picked up a swatch from a swatch store while we were in mexico, of all places. I looked around too and they had some interesting stuff. Of course I gravitated towards the more expensive stuff.

                      I like to think that my 'thing' with watches started with really obsessing with a translucent Swatch from their Skin theories maybe 15 years ago. I eventually got one of those but have long since misplaced it. I really like how affordable they are with the Sistem 51. No need to worry about servicing at all. Although ironically this collab with Hodinkee is the cheapest yet the only watch I had to pay above retail for lol.

                      EDIT: actually wearing the same watch again today.

                        Of course you looked at the more expensive stuff. I'm in the exact same boat!

                        Keep in mind that battery replacements for Swatches are free. Just go back to a Swatch store with your watch and done. No need for a receipt.

                        I have never owned a Swatch myself. I did buy one for my Mom many years ago and believe it or not, she still wears the watch from time to time.

                              I thought I was done with the Crown... I was wrong.
