Re: Worried I’m getting old!

I used to dislike gold watches but in the past year or two found myself increasingly drawn to them, even with the the full two tone bracelet (Rolex do a couple of nice models if I had a spare 5 figure sum).

Re: That feeling of excitement when a big heavy box arrives....

That was genuine joy and nice to watch. I do like that white OP36 having been tempted by a white OP39 114300 in the past.

If you count the rehaut, there's 9 lines, that's an essay :shock:

Re: C60 Lympstone

I quite like the new CW packaging, not only because it is environmentally friendly, but also that it is quite svelte and doesn't take up that much space....unlike some other brands where you feel like you need to build an extension onto your house to accommodate the packaging (Omega I'm talking abou...

Re: C65 Trident Yellow Limited Edition

Some guy has put an "unboxing" video on Youtube for the C65 yellow so might give you a bit more of a real world idea how it looks.

Re: Omega Speedmaster rumour

Surprising if they replace arguably their most iconic model with versions that are significantly more expensive, might make them somewhat less attainable. A more modest model evolution may have been a better strategy (akin to how Rolex have evolved the Sub over the years but never with more than mod...

Very nice, hard to beat a Black Bay. The Tudor claps are superb, they use ceramic bearings iirc.
