Doh!  All the prices are on NS's list a few pages back....presumably in Euros as it's in Italian.  So the Cellinis - white, rose and yellow gold, are 12.5-16k Euro.  Fack.

Anyone know anything about Timepiece Trader in FL? They're on eBay with 100% and have a site. http://timepiecetrader.com/

I bought quite a few watches when I lived in Tampa and went to the local Timezone and Panaristi events, and I never heard of them. I'll do a little checking and see what I can find out.

Edit- they have a Palm Beach phone number so maybe not in Tampa after all?

I do think however that the new Seamaster may finally be the Sub Killer.

not feelin it. its nice, but there is no sub killer like there is no iphone killer. just other options.

Nothing with polished center links can be considered a sub killer IMHO

Put a Speedy style bracelet with their new adjustable clasp, (all brushed no polish) give it a non cyclops date and I'd be in line.

As it stands now I like their 42 PO better. But maybe they wanted something different enough from that line..

I do think however that the new Seamaster may finally be the Sub Killer, however. I won't even mention the Milswatch.









I've always wanted to like the Cellini line and there have always been models I like, including in this lineup. But it is hard to get past the fact that behind the nicely made dial and dress watch case is a sport watch movement finished to sport watch standards. The carpet doesn't really match the drapes.

I love how the minute track goes through and splits the indices.

my Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean, with Omega 9300 movement. Please excuse the poor phone pics

Planet Oceans just hit all the right notes for me.  They're like my personal white elephant.  I can't wear them being a smaller guy because they're so big.  The crown just hangs over my wrists but boy do I always give them a longing stare every time I see one.

I love your comments Dopey. Always have a great perspective. Your day-counter statement still lives strong in these parts.

As for the new Seamaster... I really, really like it. I will have to see how the vintage lume works though. I am not sure if that was a good choice or not at the end of the day. Nonetheless, I like the direction that Omega is going. I don't like all of their decisions, but I think they are going the right way. In regards to the price, I think it is more than fair. You get an in house movement, great finishing, from an established brand, and you are likely to knock a grand or so off the price? In the price range, you can't do much (if any) better.

I have some more stuff to post later, if I muster up the effort!

And Frills--you have a hole in your collection. That hole can be filled with the Sea Dweller. That is all.

Also, loving some of the pics you have posted lately... big pics are beautiful.

awesome watch, Betterman. I thought about the POC long and hard but went with the 9300 Speedy instead. The POC still haunts me though even I admit its size is not for the faint of heart..

As is usual with Omega, there's supposed to be several different configurations of this watch. Hopefully they will have one with real lume, on a rubber strap. One can only hope.

Still waiting for your comments on AL&S, VC and simple watches from a few pages back. tongue.gif

This is a more eloquent expression for what I've thought. For Eur16K/USD22K you could get an AL&S Saxonia hand wound or VC Traditionelle hand wound...
