Re: c65 range under my skin...Kip meds please!

Complete madness! :shock:

You need to book a therapy session with your personal watch councillor. :)

That said I do like the look of the new dark blue Super Compressor...

Re: Omega Speedmaster rumour

Apparently.

CHF 5,800 on bracelet.

CHF 5,500 on fabric strap.

Not surprisingly it looks remarkably like the current model, although the case back has even more text and the bracelet has a better taper.

DON bezel.

If it ain’t broke, no need to fix it basically.

Apparently.

Re: The things they write on watch dials

https://quillandpad.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/JLC_Reverso_Tribute_1931_2.jpg It’s interesting how JLC vary what dial print is included on a Reverso. Sometimes JAEGER-LE COULTRE Sometimes REVERSO Sometimes both. But no JL logo IIRC. Minimalist you say? This one ticks those boxes. F04B8AB5-FAD8-...

Re: The things they write on watch dials

As well as the Pelagos having seven lines, so does the Rolex DSSD. Can’t think of any that have eight lines. 5D59F966-7EFB-4F67-9EBB-58658E004C9E.jpeg The other extreme is this. CAF4BC49-EBB6-441E-99B2-8EB744C54B80.jpeg I think the reason that quartz tends not to feature on a dial is because quartz ...

Re: Worried I’m getting old!

My thoughts: :) - I think that version of the open Defy does indeed look much better than the non gold bezel version. Very striking and different. - To me the AT is just a normal AT with a gold bezel. I much prefer the Zenith. - They both have different colour bezels to the case material. Many of us...

Re: Accuracy checking systems

The timegraphers are tempting (given the in depth analysis) but I too can see little point in the investment if one is not going to make adjustments oneself. Being a wearer and not a collector, I've (so far anyway) passed. Yep that is where I am. :thumbup: It would be interesting and a quick way to...

Re: Omega Speedmaster rumour

^^^ Indeed Chris. :) I remember how much the price increase was between the Mark 1 (aluminium bezel)Trident and the Mark 2 ceramic bezel, but initially same bracelet) Trident 2.

Re: Omega Speedmaster rumour

I heard the same from a creditable source... :) About two years ago! I am sure it will happen sometime. To be fair more likely than when I first heard it. Once Omega have milked the Moon connection a bit more. Remind me how much was the RRP of a hesalite Moonwatch in about 2013/14 before big box syn...

Re: Happy Birthday Bahnstormer_vRS

The one I had in mind was a chronograph, with Swiss parts from a British brand, in a 42mm case.

However as you have said it’s a bicompax, my guess is certainly wrong.

Re: Yet another Omega lands...

No duplication at all Gary. They are completely different. A nice pair.

Much better than the more recent models.
