Vintage works pretty well for casual wear, too:

Wow! Do you have any more photos of your vintage Omegas? Just beautiful!

If I ever get myself time-only dress watches again at some point, those Stowas will rank highly in the list of potential kops.

In the meantime, this one for this week's rotation. The Crown is often criticized for not being adventurous enough with trying out new designs and aesthetics. But when this one was released at Basel last year, it was far and away one of the instant favorites - and it's as classic as they come in terms of aesthetics and proportions, with modern conveniences like the glidelock clasp, sturdy SELs, cerachrom bezel inserts and the like.



I think one of the only criticisms for this one was that some wish it was released in 42mm to straddle the middle ground between the 40mm Submariners and the extreme bad assery that is the 44mm DeepSea.

I was very close and almost got SDc. It's an amazing reference and just stands out.

Hi Gents,

 

Any idea about the model of this watch?

 

 

Many thanks!

A common "battle" these days seem to be whether to get the SD4000 or the BLNR. I can see why that's a tough choice!

Congratulations - I guess. But then there's the sad face. Tough letting go of this one but had to?

I let the Stowa go because it gets little to no wear next to my SubC LV and 39mm.

And I'm saving for a third watch (a leather strap style) that would replace this one's purpose. So I needed the funds and it be redundant.

But it has sentimental value and was there before my two Rolexes so I feel a bit guilty abandoning it...Silly I know.

Oh man. Sorry to hear.  On the plus side, if she wasn't getting much wear (did you have to force yourself sometimes to wear her, on rotation), then hopefully she's moved on to someone who will appreciate her more. Best wishes on the third watch!

 

And hey, our love for watches probably seems silly to a whole bunch of people. :D

 

On a bunch of related topics, here's:

 

1.  A BLNR

2.  On a Rubber B

3.  In the water, where few dare to take it

 

Pic from a friend diving off the Palawan Islands in the Philippines.  Used a GoPro.

That's a nice way to phrase that, @no frills .......

I have to admit at 42 I would pick it up in a heartbeat, that being said - this is an insanely perfect watch as it is, and I'm just weird
