Cali dials are cool!  But I don't care for this watch and the date just looks wrong for this piece.

Can anyone recommend a good place to buy a vintage Omega SMP? I am looking to go vintage, but I've really have my eye on the Apollo 15 40th Anniversary Ed. with the red/white/blue dial.

I bought my 3572 off timezone.com

Saw this one in the store yesterday. Nice looking watch. But I wish it were automatic instead of hand-wound. I know I'm in the vast minority here..

yeah, i dont know why, but with panerai i really like them to be hand wound. maybe since i think of it as a tool watch, and wanding it up is more tool like. sorry.

yeah I definitely get it. I'm sure one day I'll come around. It's just I feel naked without a date function, and although this particular PAM has a date, I've been drinking the "automatic kool-aid" a little too long!

i get what you mean, i do like my automatics, but with panny im all about the hand wind.

interesting you mention about the date tho. i never thought i would mind not having a date, but i find myself checking my 112 many times a day still, for the date. only to groan when i realize its not there. lol.

Aren't they all hand wound? I always associate that crown with a hand wound movement.

interesting question. i dont know if the crown is an indicator, but panerai definitely makes automatics. i wonder if all the models with the "onion" crown are hand wound.

That crown is found on the Radiomir models, which come in both automatic and hand-wound.

Example of the auto :

Same movement, different case and dial, here.
Has interest in these watches vanished?
I have the one depicted, as well as the white-faced version of what is described in the second link.
Also, an aviator dialed Pythagore.

Are you showing, or selling?

I was admiring them much, and wishing that they were just a tad larger in diameter.
