Thanks Dachs smile.gif I was just setting the time, and hadn't screwed the crown back in when I took the photo.

Thanks Dino. I've been tooing and froing between this Sub and the Explorer. Eventually the Sub spoke to me most. It was a bit too extravagant a purchase for me, but I thought "Life is too short, just go for it." So I did smile.gif

I think the updated 1957 is really really nice. Too bad it's still just a little too thick!

So hard to get a good photo without glare. This is the best I could do.

Not sure it looks too big, but I don't love it with a suit.  But if it makes you smile and fits the 4 to 5 days of the week you don't wear a suit then go for it.

Life is short so its important to splurge every now and then!  You made a great choice wear it in good health and I hope it gives you many years of enjoyment! Looks great on you! :cheers:

The top one looked way to large.  I liked this one the most on you.  The RG with brown is beautiful...Snoopy for one daughter, this one for your second daughter ;)

Thanks Dino. Of course, I may never spend big on anything else again after this (good thing the wife got a Rolex before I did, though, or I may be heading for the divorce courts lol))...but I think this watch was worth it.

I think its 41.5 or 42mm. Friend had the blue dial for a while and I wore it for a couple days. The thickness is better balanced out on the 44mm DSOTM but on the 1957 its too noticeable.

I agree.  As much I love the watch, It just looks off to my eye with a suit.  After researching watches, I've come to the conclusion that I tend to not like traditional dress watches that would pair nicely with a suit.  I keep finding myself drawn to watches that straddle that dress/casual line that are versatile enough to wear with jeans on the weekend and business casual during the week but end up not being ideal with a suit.  So, perhaps you are right and I just simply need to get what I would love to wear four days a week.

Omega is its own company and has nothing to do with Rolex.  Tudor is a sub company of Rolex and until recently, it only used movements made by an outside company rather than movements made by Rolex (which kepts its costs down).  Tudor has now has an movement made inhouse for some of their watches.  

 

Yes, Omega makes some good watches.  There are lots of good watches on the market, it simply depends on your needs, taste and budget.

Just acquired a new watch box (12 count) so I can now go back on hunting/searching mode. No buys yet though; I promised myself not to buy another watch for a couple of months (weeks?) after my SMP. 

 

Still, a guy has to do some research, no?

There are a lot of watches out there in my opinion that straddle that line quite well. Any "sports watch" really. I could probably come up with quite a few options depending on budget.
