    Advice pricing a quartz Omega SMP 1988

    As title says, I'd like some advice if possible on what an appropriate price might be for an old SMP I want to sell.

    Its just not getting wear, largely as I'm not a fan of bracelets and it's not strappable (if that's a word).

    Pics attached if I can work the tech. Papers but no box.

    Models from 1988 but bought by a squaddie in '90 during first gulf conflict. i then bought it from Austin Kaye on the Strand just over a decade ago.

    Plenty of dings and desk diving marks, it's lived in, but still a beaut. Some lume left too, with a pic showing the hands glow in a dim corner.

    Picked it up this morning after a full service and battery change as wanted to make sure was OK before selling.

    So any and all useful advice appreciated.

    A couple of points to clarify:

    What size is it? I'm almost certain its the smaller 35-36mm, I have a bimetal full-size that's approx. 39mm, based on the position of the date window (closer to the minute track that mine) yours looks smaller.

    What was done at the service? was the movement fully stripped down, cleaned and re-oiled?

    These are factors that will affect the value. I suggest you look at completed sales on eBay and use that as a guide, but be sure you're looking at the same size. There were two versions of this watch, later ones have a slightly thicker bezel and dagger hands, I don`t think there's any difference in value. At this age condition is key.

    Thanks, very good points. Will ask dealer to confirm what service entailed.

    Its a mid size.

    Nothing to add other than I miss Austin Kaye.
