True.  And I have ben treated very well by the local ADs I have frequented over the years.

That's the cleanest & sexiest vintage Omega I've ever seen.  The size is perfect, the clean dial, and that blue seconds hand .... simply sublime!

This isn't a great pic of the watch (overexposed at the case and dial) but it does shoe the strap a bit better:

I'll be sure to let you know if I do stitchy, but that size in a time-only watch is pretty darned rare.  Previously, the largest I had seen was this 37mm piece that I am about to send out to get demagnetized and serviced:

Nice Roger P! I would love to have that in my collection for a dress watch. This is mine.I showed this watch last year and another time wearing it to a wedding last year. Re-showing it because I completely revamped the watch.. replaced the bezel and the crown, all Omega as well as the strap. Then had it serviced and cleaned up. This is the result. Had it back for a couple months now. Showing a couple different views of the watch..

Nice strap.

How old is this watch and what is the thickness? Also, is this completely original, incl the second hand?

chocosa - that's a lovely piece - thanks for showing it again.  This thread is so massive that it's easy to miss a lot of worthwhile stuff.

Rooster - I won't know the exact age untill I have it opened and the serial number cross-referenced with Omega records.  The watch was certainly marketed by the most recent vendor as being original - and though there is nothing about the watch which suggests the contrary to me, I always retain a bit of skepticism given the number of decades and unknown owners that have passed since it was made.

 

Not sure of the thickness (and I have misplaced my calipers) but being a manual wind, it is very slender indeed.

Thanks RP. It looks great.

A customer in South Africa already received their new GMT. Now I'm unsure about the blue...





I was expecting a deeper blue and not this baby blue hue we're seeing above. Of course I will have to reserve judgement until I see it in person, but this is a little disheartening to say the least.
