What sets this apart from other vintage Omega is the original black dial. At the price of this watch I can't see anyone losing any money if they was to sell on in the near future.

The movement (engine of the watch) is wonderful to look at. Very clean and working as it should.

The reasons why Omega vintage watches are good to buy:
1. Value/Investment. They hold their value brilliantly and should actually increase in value over the next few years as they become rarer and rarer. Buying a brand new watch is like a car, as soon as it leaves the premises the prices drops by at least 20%. A vintage watch like this in excellent condition and serviced by a Omega specialist is very difficult to find.
2. Stealth Wealth. A leading American news commentator wrote an article regarding "Stealth wealth" - where this watch type is purchased by gentleman who tend to purchase things that are discrete and very sophisticated. Basically a subtle way to show off the exquisiteness of good taste.

This design usually commands a premium price and seen in the Constellation & De Ville models.
