Omega Seamaster £3200 Goldsmiths sale

Found 2nd Apr 2017
Obviously not for everyone, so please spare the 'who would spend 3 grand on a watch' comments. Great price for the seamasters from a reputable retailer that very rarely (almost never) discounts Omega. This is the price you would normally get from grey imports/unauthorised dealers.

Many other luxury brands reduced to up to 50%.

Omega offer 4 years warranty on movements with a Si14 balance spring. (which this model has)

I would love to understand why people love such watches, but I don't. If I regularly dived to 600m (and HAD to wear a watch while doing it) then maybe but otherwise for appearance and everything else it just feels like overpriced status symbol. All it says is that I can afford to wear a pointlessly expensive watch.

Help me out here. But without the usual nonsense about brand, legacy and movements?
I prefer to just pay the local muggers by direct debit, save a lot of time and bother that way.

Why do people eat out rather than eat in the house? Why do people bother with a car dearer than a Dacia Duster? Why do people bother buying a bigger house than they strictly need? Why do people buy branded clothing rather than getting everything from Primark or jumble sales?

Think of it as a piece of jewellery (which it is). If you wait until the 70% off sales to buy Argos' or H Samuel's finest offerings when buying a ring or necklace for the missus, or have persuaded her that the 15mm brass olive from the plumbers merchants is really Gold then this deal isn't for you. A £20 watch will do the same job, same as a Dacia Duster will get you from A to B just like a Bentley will (in far less style and comfort).

I have what I would consider to be an expensive watch (Omega Speedmaster 57), but i'm sure there are plenty of Airline Pilots and Tony Stark types that would consider it a cheapo.

I don't wear any other form of jewellery than a watch, so where's the shame in having a nice watch if you can afford it?

Personally I don't like the orange bezel of the one shown, but there are a few other choices around the same sale pricemark in the same range.

​but these are the exact reasons why people pay these prices. obviously not for everyone but for those who like such items, these are damn good watches at a decent price.
I got a seamaster 35yr ago when I graduated
Still fine just costs £120 to service at omega central
best to do that as they reseal it all properly
I'll have half a dozen then

​Beyond my price range but my dad has had rolex, omega etc before. They do last forever, so could become a nice heirloom to give to kids. And some of the models go up in value over the years, so could argue its an investment.

I have bought the cheap watches in the past and they've broken in a few months, so compromise and get 'slightly' more expensive models, citizen or tissot. Definitely not in the same league as omega and the rest, but have given me years of good time keeping.

Either it's not that expensive to the person (compared to the Patek Philippes, Rolexes etc. some people wear at work, £3,200 could almost be seen as good value), or they just like it more than other things they could spend the money on. Why do people get custom made Hugo Boss suits when you can get a decent off-the-rack Moss Bros one that looks sort of similar from a distance? Or Made-in-Northampton leather shoes when you can get a perfectly decent pair of Clarks from the outlet for much, much less?

Yeah, I agree, if you just wanted 'something that looks presentable and tells the correct time', you can get a Casio or Citizen or whatever else that will last for years for a fraction of the price. But it would be kind of a boring world if everyone did that, right?

Dry pressure testing machines are pretty common at a lot of jewlers these days.

Was quoted £40 for a battery change, pressure test and seal if necessary.

The test is only to maintain the depth rating for diving. Pretty pointless for someone who only uses in bath etc but if spending this amount I'd probably get omega service until warranty out.

Why do people like any things?

Should just all buy bread and water and nothing else, that's all we need.
im heat for the price totally agree with op these never ever get reduced
I bought one yesterday to replace my Tag.

Buying an Omega over, say a Seiko is like why somebody choice Ford over Mercedes.

who would spend 3 grand on a watch
I love watches and I understand why people buy these but I'm very drawn towards Seiko watches. For £400 you get a reliable watch and good brand. I have a few from the 80s and they all work perfect.
really for a plain, boring watch
lol
Pretty decent price. Omega watches are real quality items, I've a couple, a Seamaster (the one posted above is a Planet Ocean) and a Speedmaster Moonwatch that is primarily for my son when he's older.

I recommend iconic watches if you want a cheaper option for getting a quality watch. Me and a few of my mates have used them for Omega purchases with no issues at all.
That orange bezel looks nice.
Cheap for a planet ocean

Dunno, just buy the **** you can afford and enjoy it. It really makes no difference to anyone else.

Got the time on ye cock?
Probably still better off buying used. Chrono24 prices within the EU for £2700 upwards.

Don't buy the orange bezel, get the black bezel versions, they will hold their value much better.
does anybody think it looks crap

I tend to prefer the blue myself.
Shame they dont have the waves on the dial like they used to have on the seamaster.
Appreciate the comments, but the obvious response is with a car you get a much better experience, leather heated seats, a smoother ride, etc etc up to a certain value. With food or clothing you just simply get a better quality of food or a finer piece of cloth. With a watch though, there isn't really anything in it? UNLESS it really was jewellery and had diamonds and whatever else. The problem is, these expensive watches dont' have anything over and above what a £100-£250 watch has. And for those who say it's simply jewellery, it's like really? Cus it looks a bit crap. I could find a watch with exactly the same aesthetics for a fraction of the price and you wouldn't look twice, urg garish orange frame. But because it says Omega we're all over it. Do you get me?

Even lastability really I mean, do you really think the ones built today are meant to last 100 years? I have a citizen ecodrive, doesn't require servicing or batteries and I'm pretty sure will last just as long as this Omega. Actually even as an investment perhaps if it was a Patek Phillipe Calatrava but not a random bog standard omega?

However, I remain open minded to a convincing argument.
If only you could buy Goldsmiths sale products with Tesco vouchers, like you can normal-priced items...otherwise I am not a buyer

As a possible pension investment, to redistribute any savings restrictions, it does have its value.
you can get 30% off most watches except Rolex if you shop around or have a friend who works at a Jewellers .

Good price though and a nice watch.

For those who don't "get it " carry on using your £600 phone !
I ran into one of our suppliers who wears a Rolex, he said his watch has gone up in value by 10 percent over the year, i think he spent a few grand on it, like 7k. Anyone know if this watch/brand will increase it's value over the year?
