Objectively they aren't worth that much. They do one thing: tell time, and they do it worse than i)your cell phone or ii)an 18 dollar Casio f91-w, and if you let them sit for 3 days, they stop doing that entirely and need to be reset. But they're pretty astounding to look at. The mechanical precision and quality of manufacture are to a standard that you don't come across very often. The movement in this watch is an industry unique co-axial movement, which, without getting too nerdy about watches, utilizes a pretty revolutionary escapement design created by a man named George Daniels who was considered to be the world's greatest watchmaker while he was alive. Some people (mostly men, I've always found) are deeply inspired by the mechanical aspect of these types of watches. It just touches something in many to have this amazing bit of clockwork ticking away, powered by nothing but a spring,a bunch of gears, and a winding stem or oscillating rotor. And, to be fair, for many people, it's just about flashing some bling. If that's your thing, I'd say your money is better spent on an old Rolex Datejust for the same money, as that name is much better known, and even watch fans would struggle to tell a 20 year old Rolex from a new one at 5 feet. That's not a knock on Rolex: they know their brand and their market and they are genius at preserving and growing it, and they do it far better than any other watchmaker, including Omega.

Craftsmanship^

You can easily get an automatic watch that still has a ton of gears, levers and springs that are still hand assembled, but the level of fit and finish is not going to be comparable. Look at the movement of entry level autos (Seiko 5, orient, miyotas, etc) and then compare to things like this Omega (or even grand Seiko, Patek Phillipe, A. Lange, etc). These watches aren't for accurate time telling, as a cheap $10 quartz at Walmart is probably more accurate than this Omega. These watches are status symbols, jewelry, appreciation for the arts and engineering. Some of them are heirlooms, which may not be worth much from a utilitarian point of view but they are fine examples of human ingenuity and engineering.

Nice watch. A little on the small side. I like at least 40mm or larger. How's the warranty w this seller. I've heard some mixed reviews.

Just curiosity from a watch noob: Is there a reason this watch is $4K? Is it built with gold, silver, or some other precious material? Surely it's not worth $4K in parts.

A new Lexus doesn't contain more than about $1000 worth of steel either, but they sell it for a hefty markup over the raw goods price. It's more about craftsmanship, brand value, exclusivity...

I think it has to do with the name. Omega is pretty big, not Rolex big, but still popular. It is an automatic watch and Omega (I may be wrong) unlike other high end watch makers, create all of their movements in house and dont out source parts. I am sure there are watch people who will chime in.

also, these do hold value like Rolexs. They are sort of an investment and usually passed between family members.

Omegas don't hold their value as well as a rolex would, but they do hold some value.

It's jewelry for men. You don't buy an Omega to be able to accurately tell time. You buy it because you appreciate the engineering and design that went into it - it's hard to make automatic watches - and because they look great on the wrist. $4k is relatively low for an automatic watch.

Eh... for that money I would get an Omega Seamaster 300M or spend a little more and get a Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M. I just don't love that watch face.
