    Two of my watches: a Tudor that I bought when I was ten years old (I mowed some serious lawns, no kidding) and my great grandfathers gold Elgin from the 1910's.

    They certainly seem to be following some of Rolex's moves. Rolex comes out with the Sub LV with green bezel, they came out with the Planet Ocean with orange bezel. The famous "Paul Newman" Daytonas have become highly sought after and valuable, so Omega releases Speedmasters with dials similar to that of the old PN Daytonas (even a red dial schumacher edition that looks like the ultra rare red PN dial Daytonas). Rolex releases a revised antimagnetic Milguass with orange lightning bolt hand a few years ago, now Omega releases a new antimagnetic AT with dotted yellow second hand and with a bracelet that looks like it was taken right off of a Milgauss.

    Omega makes some very good watches. I think they should make watches that show their own DNA and heritage rather than mimicking Rolex on occasion.

    Exactement.

    "Do you", Omega, and just let Rolex be Rolex.

    The watch game is big enough for both of ya.

    Thanks. It has a lot of sentimental value. My great grandad was a tailor, and my grandpa is passing down all of his nice stuff to me. I now own his collection of cufflinks, that watch, his white gold bulova (with two diamonds!) from the 20's, and his hunting rifle. I'm a lucky guy.

    I thought the Bond-Vesper dialogue on the train was one of the best parts of the movie.
