Tissot Navigator on NSA bracelet today....
Love this watch (may have said it before 🙄😁) and the fume/sunburst red Omega... Its these (your pics) and the Omega Marui that started my search for a red dial, as yet unfulfilled!
Im also a sucker for the interesting larger 60/70s cases so the hunt continues to combine the two.

Did I mention I’ve also owned a red Marui Aqua Terra for many years? ;)

It might have come up on a thread contribution from you a little while ago, along with Mitsukoshis and various other of my ramblings 😉😜
I currently have only 1 Omega in my collection, the smallest watch I own

Yes I know the handset is not original, the rest is pretty spot on and movement super smooth.

^^ Very nice - I’ve had a long-standing love affair with Dynamics and a white dialled one is not only very nice, but also comparatively rarer. Even though I’ve owned quite a few of them, I have only one Dynamic these days - it’s not dissimilar to yours; it’s also a racing dial but in blue rather than white and is the earlier of the two oval models (as is yours). I’ve decided that the racing dial models tick more boxes for me than the bullseye or plain dial variants.

It’s surprising what a difference the bracelet makes to how they wear - it feels more substantial on the bracelet - like a larger watch ... even if the bracelets are fairly lightweight compared to modern ones. Decent quality aftermarket ones can be found on eBay for surprisingly good prices.

If the non-original hands bother you (and they may not), a set of dark grey or black Dynamic hands on yours would make it superbly readable, and a decent watchmaker could probably paint the second hand a matching orange for much less than the price of a replacement. Let’s face it, who doesn’t love an orange second hand? :lol:

Im a sucker for an orange second hand! It needs a service and some work anyway as the crown is a bit loose and can be pulled off if too much force, i know its a common 'feature' of these so I may look at the hands situation at the same time. Its actually not white white, more of a very pale silver, original but not as rare as white (think it was just reflection on the pic).
Had a bulseye dial and sold it as also love the racing dial. Also like the larger chronostop which i had and px'd.
I think the Dynamic is an underrated watch in enthusiast circles tbh.
Apologies to others for off thread chat, at least it is a vintage watch though

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.

That's a rather smart Jacket you're wearing Om. Everyday or special occasion?
