The movement itself is less loud than the other watches in my possession (Ebay acquirements of Slava, Zim Pobeda and Vostok), but the movement of the rotor is surprisingly loud.

Vintages scare me. I am way too anal to deal with that.

You read my mind! I am still weighing the pros and cons, but a nice vintage omega/rolex would have more character than said hamilton methinks.

Dilemma - I have yet to try either on my wrist (Tuesday), but I love the aesthetics of the DateJust from the 90's more than the modern ones which have a bulkier looking dial.

The reason why I'm not completely sold on the older? Well, I want a jubilee band and hear all about the stretching. So, if I find a 90's DateJust in mint condition, should I not worry about the Jubilee band? Or should this be a serious concern of mine?

I think you just have to budget appropriately or just have a good relationship with a watchmaker who does some vintage selling as well.

+1... definitely. My local jeweler has been dealing with my family for years (3 generations). It's very helpful to have a good rapport with someone whom you can trust... makes buying vintage MUCH easier.

I currently own a vintage Omega De Ville (1st pic) as a dress/formal watch that I wear to work a couple times a week and because its in pristine condition, I only want to wear it on special occasions. Therefore, I'm looking for a watch that can pull double duty with a suit or jeans. I have another vintage Omega manual wind with sub-second dial at 6 o'clock that gets some action during the week also.
Choice 1a is an IWC Portugese Automatic 7-Day (2nd pic) and 1b is the JLC Master Control (3rd & 4th pic). I haven't been able to find exact pricing on the IWC or JLC but from what I understand, the JLC is no longer in production so I may be able to get a better price. I'm not in a hurry to buy, since the watch will be a present to myself for a possible promotion at work this spring.
