Styles mentioned in this thread:
I have no idea of the model. I bought because I liked its simplicity and the nice layout as you observed. Also, it does not seem they are all that rare in Brazil. I may buy other models if I find it.
I am not knowleadgeble about watches, but now I am curious to find out more about it. Thanks, sir.
Next, in the spirit of the gmt discussion, here's a GMT Roadster.
A bit louche, but it's a nice sports watch / travel watch alternative for me.
I saw a similar Cartier in person. I love the romans and dial color, I just don't like many of the case shapes Cartier has to offer. I mean sometimes I see them on other people and think they look great but I personally wouldn't buy any I have seen.
Now that FC, that is hot and for sub-$5K that is a great choice.
I saw one in person and the blue seemed slightly darker than it looks in that pic. That said, I still hate that model - never understood the appeal of a 50/50 bezel, especially on a 24 hour clock. I don't mind it if the bi-color ring is small, but when it's that big it seems excessive.

This prompted me to check their website, where I found this beauty Omega...
That's a (badly done) dial refinish. Wrong fonts, uneven printing - look at the uneven minute markers.
If its declared as refinished and priced accordingly, then I have no problem with it OK. The problem is that many sellers surreptitiously refinish or franken a watch without declaring it, and then charge primo prices.
Vintage Omegs are a minefield if you don't know what you should be looking for!!
