Nice, Richard, very nice.
Does this mean that there's going to be a bit more variation in your contributions to the "Non CW of the Day" thread? :D

A great morning.

What a great catch downer. That is a lovely watch and at a cracking price too. You have done very well with both your omega's, two stunning watches.

I have to agree with you that Omega do make some outstanding watches and the attention to detail is second to none at their price bracket.

Wear them in good health :D

Nice pick-up Richard. Good example of ying yang there. The ability to pick up the AT and appreciate its excellent detailing led to the right decision being made on the C90. Still not sure on the recessed crown on the AT but the dial detail is exquisite.

You've done it again Richard, another lovely watch to add to your impressive collection. It's my favourite Omega in the current range. Congrats.

Very true. It all helps. I'm considering selling a few others to build a new fighting fund. :)

Early days yet. I don't have any 'must' sells, but there are a few that I rarely/never wear - C3, C4, C40, C6, Oris Worldtimer, Steinhart Military, possibly one of my C8's. No rush though. I'm gonna enjoy what I have for a while. :)

My daughter moved to Chester last year, so I've haunted a number of the numerous watch shops there 8)

It's very dangerous to the plastic to wander round there for long - I have to pretend I'm only interested in street photography whenever erindoors and I go! It is quite a good town for that, with lots of people milling round distracted by historic buildings, street performers and watch shops...

Actually I did get a Suunto Core in a shop-soiled box for a very keen price last time we were there. I look on this as a sort of insurance policy so I'm not tempted to wear my nicer watches when doing anything involving yomping across the land- or sea-scape, so it was a virtually guilt-free transaction :twisted:

It is a very nice town. It's not the closest one to us, but it is where we most often end up.

Here's a couple of pictures from a thread we did a couple of years ago...

And a link to that old thread in case anyone is interested. :) Link
