Closest I have been is my 358 Jubilaum that I sold a couple of years ago - and slightly regret.

Image

It was very well made, very clear and one of the few watches i would consider buying again - given the chance.

I've always liked the look of the copper dial one they used to make.
Like this one?

Thanks Richard :thumbup: I think it was seeing your regrets thread that reignited my interest in the 356

Yep. I'd like to see one in real life, but I've always been impressed with the look of pictures of them.

I know it went to the Moon but is the Hesalite ok for the rigours of desk scratches and earthly life?
Interested on views but I presume you 2 are Hesalite or nothing ?

Sapphire wouldn't be a deal breaker but I prefer Hesalite and that is what they have in stock.

That is what they all seem to have in stock.

I went into the AD in Plymouth and Exeter last week and both only had the Hesalite, so I tried Ernest Jones in Exeter where the 'Omega specialist' didn't even know a sapphire sandwich version existed and had to look it up in her '2017 big book of Omega' (which I tried to steal but got caught :oops: :lol: )
