I was dragged into the battlefield, so on my behalf I say I knew I was paying a premium for my 2255.80 EB as I found one brand new, at the city I was traveling to with my wife for some work holidays so no need to mail or wire anything, got extended 3 yrs warranty, Omega Cap, Omega gulf balls, polishing cloth, mags, key holder, complete package and etc. It was a nice deal and the watch was a very nice NYC souvenir so that is why I decided to pay extra for it. On the other hand, my 2254.50 was bought new at an AD for 2k back in 2010. If you guys want to know the real price for this watches nowadays, you all should hear what our fellow Kringkly is saying on this thread. He knows this game. Chill guys.
