No.

Indeed, not one but two red 1680s are at my workplace; I understand the temptation all too well:


I posted this earlier in the thread but it seems relevant. :|

However, I'm more than happy with the 1675, so there's an alternative with the bonus of insert colour options to consider.

What does it mean to be a red sub? It has the red "Submariner" text? Sorry... I'm new to this.

You are correct!

@dopey What ever happened to your old Speedmaster? Did you end up sending it to an independent for service?

Dunno if you saw this: http://www.hodinkee.com/#./undefined?&_suid=143619527849708436116416602216

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Omega just doesn't get it. Just have Bond wear their watch and it will become a classic. Limited editions are probably reducing sales.

I'm pretty sure Bond wears the standard watches in the movie and then Omega makes a special one. The blue AT he wore in skyfall didn't say anything about bond on it, but it sold a ton based on being in the movie

Awesome choice. A real beauty. Looks like it ticks all the boxes. Well done. And I like Austin Kaye - bought my Speedy there.

 

Wishing you many years of pleasure with it. :cheers:

There's something in me that just loves this sort of filthy high-end car. One day I want to have not just a daft sports car, but a real 'f-ck you' works version Lambo or something like that Ferrari, which I assume is some sort of Scuderia variation of the Italia, with logos all over it. I'd own it for about six months, rag it as much as a could, then sell it in shame and have a good shower.

Thanks - they gave me a good price (I was waiting on one for a long time) and gave me a decent part-exchange price on an old over-sized Glycine too.

Never get sick of it. How are the PCLs holding up?
post #44923 of 48312
thanks man.

As for PCLs, I baby my watches hehehe.. When I had my SS Daytona for almost a year, I only had some very light desk diving marks on the clasp.

BLNR has almost zero hairlines as I got some experience with previous PCL and don't rest my left wrist on the desk LOL. I think I will get over it, when I had my Pams the bezel was a scratch magnet.

You're the same as me. The AD and my friends constantly comment on my watches looking brand new after months/years. #teamocd

Yes you are correct. I guess the limited editions must sell though.
