You know, I originally liked the newer one... but I have yet to see a picture on the wrist that was very flattering! Some examples:
And this is coming from someone who was INCREDIBLY close to picking one of these bad boys up. I was very disappointed when I actually got to try one "in the metal."
Kind of scared to post in the plethora of Pams, and Rolex`s here but here goes nothing. This is my my 1971 Omega Deville, .711 caliber. Its my best friend, my beast, and my classy woman in one. Wear it everyday even though its supposed to be a dressy watch. Love these vintage thin-o-matics. I find it absolutely stunning and simple, and I think thats all that matters :D Thanks.
Well, looks like they fixed everything I might have objected to on the porto chrono in one fell swoop. As long as they didn't up the price by 50% or make it 18mm thick or anything equally dumb I don't see how I'm going to avoid getting one eventually.
They upped the price by a little over 50%. I think it will be retailing for just shy of $13,000. Only 14.5mm though, and 42mm in width.
Hate to break it to you, but it is much more than 50% more expensive. Closer to 100% more. The retail price for the steel version is $14,400. That is actually a fair price for an in-house, column-wheel chronograph with a flyback function.
I thought they'd just brought it in house. The columnwheel and flyback complication lend some legitimacy to the pricehike.
Let me be the first to say, they are going to sell the hell out of that watch.
No kidding. I guess that is one big advantage of having an in-house movement. Valjoux 7750 was too small I guess, so they had to put the subdials closer to the center of the watch.
