Fake. That's why you have it.

Consider purchasing the one below as well to add the gold color, but I'm guessing it's better to mix it up with some other brands when starting a collection. It's just that the vintage Omegas seem to be such a great value and are really beautiful. Look at the picture below - what would you do?



Should I buy or consider something else in the <$2K price range?



very nice.

my only issue with these watches, i have one from the 40's, is that they are all sub 36mm... most of them 34mm. It's too small for me. They're very delicate too... not for a daily wearer... one good drop and you're replacing hands and crystals.

Omega would make so much dough if it re-issued the DeVille, Ranchero, etc... in a 38 or 40mm case. Maybe powered by a larger movement for consistency. I would buy a new reissue Ranchero right away.

I have small wrists, so the size was one of the major reasons that drove me to purchase these. The 35mm is perfect for me.

Heuer 1000 Dive watch (from pre tag days). Got the watch last week. Got the Bond Nato strap today. Sorry for the crappy cell phone pic:

One of the Omega's just arrived. Smaller than I anticipated, but I think it still works.

very nice looking watch.

I just bought a Tommy Hilfiger watch, it's not top of line watch compare to some of you guys, but it's by far my most expensive watch. I have a question: The watch manual said "The watch has a 1.55 vol silver-oxide batter. It is specially designed for watches and will last approximately 18-36 months under normal use. It is important to use only the replacement battery recommended by Tommy Hilfiger watches. Many "interchangeable" batteries(such as hearing aid batteries) will not work properly in your watch or might damage it.
"
Do you guys take your watches to a service section for battery service?

That's an understatement - lovely looking watch and it suits your wrist well.

Very very nice, perfect size. I have two Omega Seamasters with the white dials and in search of a nice one with a black dial.

Thanks for the compliments. It's actually a navy dial, but I like the color combo with the brown leather. It's a little small in person compared to the picture, but I'm pretty satisfied with the purchase.
