1955 GUB 'Q1'

Cal: 60-2, 18 jewel.

Delighted in being able to acquire this example some years ago, fortunate that it was in original & unadulterated (but still legible :D ) condition...

Women's Omega Geneve Dynamic blue bullseye.

Today's pic, but wrong date - unlike the men's version where the date can be quickly advanced by repeatedly pulling the crown out to position 2, the ladies' version requires winding the crown back and forth from before 9 to after 3 o'clock. Too much bother.

Owned this for more years than I care to remember; at 35mm it’s been too small for me, but I thought a Bund might help with that.... still undecided.

Bund sorts it nicely Gary. :clap:

I have the same issue with my C5 BoB which, at 39mm, is smaller than my norm. Sorted it with a Bund strap. :thumbup:

Although my C5A MkI, at 38mm, looks fine on a regular strap. :? :problem:

strangely but I have no issues with watch size.

I actually have watches from 33 mm to 49 mm and wear them all.

Thanks Guy. Interesting that you have two watches, very similar with such a different feel... odd isn’t it.

Generally speaking, I’m only comfortable with the range from 38/39mm to about 43/44mm. I have owned a 46-47mm Seiko Sawtooth which was fine, but the very short lugs with a strong downward curve really helped. This 35mm one just looks way to small on a normal strap for me to feel (mentally and perceptually) comfortable with.

Vintage Leonidas chronograph...not wearing the oldies quite so much these days! :(

The half minute which we daily devote to the winding-up of our watches is an exertion of labour almost insensible; yet, by the aid of a few wheels, its effect is spread over the whole twenty-four hours.
