Thanks for all the interesting opinions on the 321.
I will be meeting with the seller next week to deal.
As this is the first time I am getting an Omega, anything I should look out for?

I know the case number, movement number and the warranty card must match.
there is an omega imprint on the centre of the watch.
does omega come with any tags like the rolex?

TIA

Watches come in a coffin separate from the official box. Coffin has the watch, price stickers, tag, red cards. The watch has plastic film on both crystals, the bracelet, etc. Omega has shifted to paper coffins from plastic. Both have a sticker with the watch model and SN on the side.

Presentation Box is the old standard moonwatch case/box (loupe, medallion, two straps, changing tool, etc.). There is also the big red manual and a small booklet on the 321 movement history.

Agreed

Mine didn't come with the hang tag but the OB might have just forgotten or chosen to keep it

If you haven’t tried it on, I’d definitely recommend doing so, as you might be quite surprised how it wears on the wrist.



I’d always discounted the regular Speedmaster, as I thought it would be too large at 42mm, but I’ve just bought the new white-dialled 3861 and I’m really happy with the size. I actually think it seems smaller on the wrist than the 321!
This is spot on actually I also find it wears bigger than the specs (whereas the standard moonwatch wears smaller) but it fits my 7 inch wrist really well.

The AD kept my hang tag from the Silver Snoopy I picked up on St Patty’s day of last year. I so want a 321 next. Whenever I receive a call or text if I do that is. Beautiful watch.

Just collected the omega today. Looks fantastic and great. Came with the transport box and white tag as well. Only thing was the caliber 321 booklet was missing. Seller will go and check. But this watch is a very early batch, so may not have included the 321 booklet?

The watch is definitely bigger than expected at 39.7mm.

You could contact your local boutique to see it they have a copy of the 321 brochure that they could send you.

it’s a nice resource to have and completes the full kit

Oh cool. But I am not the original owner and it was from a boutique overseas. I was given the original receipt though. Not sure if the local Omega Boutique will entertain me

It’s worth a shot

FWIW, I didn’t receive one with mine either, but since I bought it from our boutique they were most helpful in sending me one.

Seems that it’s one of those things that aren’t necessarily sent out each and every time

You could also check eBay or other online sources.

Congratulations again on the 321, it’s a work of art (on the wrist)
