Fantastic pictures. Thank you kindly, TC.

You guys are making me feel like my aesthetics meter is malfunctioning. Not hating (or trolling), just not loving in the slightest. Picasso does me like that as well.

The Royal Oak is an iconic watch. Aesthetically, it is also a divisive one. If you were to spend time on a watch forum, with people even geekier about watches than us, you'd find that more than half hate the way it looks, too. For whatever reason, it's become a TWAT darling.

Very, very few things that stir my soul are loved by everyone. That's what makes this hobby so personal and expressive. Next week should be interesting. smile.gif

Tell me what's wrong with the Omega Aqua Terra Co-Axial Annual Calander. I looked at it in 38.5m and thought it looked and felt great. And technologically, it is impressive. I would probably prefer no date at all, but day counters make me ill and I have no problem with annual calanders. Some pics.




I have two complaints, one of which you can't tell from the pictures. The one you can tell, I looked for in person and couldn't see but it is visible in the photo. Give me more.


Ooops, the version I saw at the boutiques is slightly different with an improved movement (might also be why the complaint I think you can see above might not have been in the watch I saw).
The current version is labeled Master Co-Axial - the primary differences are greatly improved anti-magnetic properties.

This would be for my wear-all-the-time-unless-I-have-a-reason-to-wear-something-different, watch. The bracelet, is fantastic feeling, though the polished links would no doubt get beat up - I don't care about that.

Not much wrong with it save that I have no use for a date function much less a costly annual calendar. I'd just grab the three-hander and save a ton of dough. The 8500 series movements are terrific. The new Master Coaxial versions with the fully anti magnetic movements are even sweeter.

I like the RO in pics, just not on my wrist...

Let's hope they can manage a miracle!

Roger, just curious, do you still have the Speedy 9300?

The annual calendar does add $, but is shockingly well-priced nonetheless. Full retail is around $8,500. The one with just a day counter is less than half, I think but don't rely on that.

My only real objection is the aesthetics. Like most Omegas other than the Speedmaster, it is a bit too blingy for my taste, what with the chunky hands and hour markers and flashy dial. But if you like the way it looks, that's all moot.
