Pulled out the Omega dress watch today

I hadn't put this on for a week or so and thought I would give it a spin. Quick set date makes it easy to pick up. My favorite part of this one is the crystal is original and has the etched Omega 馃槏.

What are some of your favorite watches in your collection?聽

By god man, that's a pretty one. Love the classic, clean look.

This is one of my absolute favorites!

I originally wanted to get the Casino Royale Planet Ocean, but it was crazy heavy and flopped around on my thin wrist.

So, had to go with the titanium version. 聽It's crazy big and crazy thick, but due to the titanium, it weighs next to nothing and is super comfortable. 聽I wish more watches had titanium options!

Great strap pairing - look fantastic and timeless! 馃敟

Wow that鈥檚 a stunner. I really want an Omega just like this one day. Even though I鈥檓 a fan of modern Omegas, I think their designs peaked in this vintage era.

Also, who did you buy this watch from? Would you suggest them? As the saying goes for vintage watches: buy the seller, not the watch.

I agree that Vintage Omega design language is pretty amazing! Surprisingly, this one was from Ebay. I found it with some serious time left on the clock so I was able to dig into the research and verify a lot of the parts before placing a bid.聽

I have bought from Omega Enthusiast before and he does some great stuff. A little pricier though compared to some other sites depending on what you are looking to spend.聽

I've got the same watch,(manual wind omega geneve) it was my late fathers. I love it a lot but rarely wear it for fear of damaging or (heaven forbid) losing it. All i don't like about it is to change the date you have to keep pulling on the crown to make the numbers advance, definitely not a good idea? The watch itself is over fifty years old, i had it sympathetically restored and serviced a few years ago. Ive got it on a plain black leather strap but it was originally on an expanding bracelet. I don't know how my dad tolerated this as we both have very hairy arms and it was torturous!
