The Watch Appreciation Thread (Reviews and Photos of Men's Timepieces by Rolex, Patek Philippe, Breitling, JLC etc...) - Page 217

I am 20 years old and just purchased my first watch, from a secondhand dealer.

Here is a picture of it before I receive it, this is just a teaser pic.

A big purchase at my age for $600...

Hard to find an Omega with more than just hash marks for the hour markers, and I wanted a white/steel toned watch to be more versatile, and I ordered a cotton strap as well for more casual occasions. I am very excited for its arrival, fingers crossed that it makes it through customs at the US/Canada border.

What do you guys think?


more pics to come when it is received

It's a 1958 18kt Omega with a chronometer-rated movement, hence the red star.

Thanks. It's actually one of two vintage Hamiltons I have, the other being 1941 Endicott. That one still needs a trip to the matchmakers.

Here's my 1957 in 14K...I left the patina on the dial intact:



I'd would love to have an 18K electric Ventura, but I think that they made fewer than 100.

^^Actually, I adjusted my monitor and could see it is a black skin of some sort. I initially thought that it was some sort of navy, woven fabric.

Still a good look.
