Tried on one again yesterday in an AD and other than the current Hulk, this is probably the one that I like best, as a halfway house between the old and the new, a 2-line 14060M.

Not really as black and white as that at all is it. I would think it is easier to argue that the current 114060/116610 are the start of a new modern era with the bracelet and bezel and maxi dial whereas the 14060/16610 are indeed the last of their kind (aluminium bezel, lightweight stamped clasp, lug holes (on the no date) etc.).

I agree WS. I think OM is just trying to build the price of his rather nice 168xxxxxxx non cyclops thingy for when he flips it. :)

I would only get it if the view comes as standard, Richard.

More prosaic perhaps, but still nice. When is it arriving? :D

It's a tricky one. If I consider resale value, I'd say multi-function Quartz is probably not a great idea, so I would have to be prepared to take a big hit should I ever sell it - even when buying at a decent price. Would a watch such as this turn out to be a keeper? Unlikely....

But, it is very nice...

No, I think I'm back on plan. An Alt1-ZT/51 in the summer and the possibility of a GS from the states at the end of the year. No room in the budget for this Omega.



















Unless I sell my Nomos.

Remember your own rules. Only buy at a 'nice price' if you would have bought at full price. :silent:

Good advice, Guy. :)

I have decided. No Skywalker for me.
