    Sweet! Makes me feel like I need to buy a Submariner.

    Thanks - I'm very happy about my vintage sports Rolex lineup...

    I am 20 years old and just purchased my first watch, from a secondhand dealer.

    Here is a picture of it before I receive it, this is just a teaser pic.

    A big purchase at my age for $600...

    Hard to find an Omega with more than just hash marks for the hour markers, and I wanted a white/steel toned watch to be more versatile, and I ordered a cotton strap as well for more casual occasions. I am very excited for its arrival, fingers crossed that it makes it through customs at the US/Canada border.

    What do you guys think?

    more pics to come when it is received


    Hate to say it, but this Omega looks like a fake or a franken-watch...

    It has a Dr's dial and Omega made some of those. A little research would be in order.

    The watch is circa 1950's, so a little older than most of the vintage 70's Omega's floating around.

    What is a Dr dial?

    The picture is really washed out, the best I could muster right now.

    Quick question. What materials are commonly used to make the dials of watches? I know that porcelin is used on some dress watches, but what about sports watches, like a Rolex sub or Seiko monster, for instance?

    What is a Dr dial?.


    Dr' s, i.e., Doctor's - as in medical doctor - these dials typically have the 60 second hash marks - for taking a pulse, I suppose. Many manufacturers make or made such a dial and they're often decscribed as Doctor's dials or watches.

    These are doctor dials - one counts 30 pulses and reads what pulse rate is on the outside markings
