    This is what I wear everyday (I would have shot it on my wrist, but even with long arms, 50mm is pushing it. So, it got the star treatment [​IMG] ). I also have the Desire model on a nice black leather strap, but I'll have to post a pic of that one later. The next watch purchase will probably be an Omega De Ville. [​IMG]
    Excellent. I've got the black face with the arabic numerals. I don't think I've actually worn it once though. Probably should sell the bastard. It really is a fantastic watch.

    I also rock the Le Locle, albeit the white faced version.
    Hell of a deal at ~300 USD from Amazon. Nice ETA automatic movement, sapphire crystal and decent looks.

    Bought my first watch yesterday, from the Longines Master Collection. Im only 16, so it was hard on my wallet, but totally worth it. Hopefully it will last long.

    Beautiful watch-very classic. It should last you a long, long time. Great purchase!

    reposting for new page:

    Can anyone help me identify this Omega watch?
    [​IMG]

    Thoughts on it?

    Worth getting a nice leather strap?


    Late 50's/early 60's at a guess. Looks nice. Yes get a nice strap.

    I picked this up at the weekend - I dont know much about watches but it was definitely after the 1950's - Hand wind Services Watch

    17 Jewel Lever blah blah - nice light on the wrist, beautiful watch (imo)

    Anyone know any more about Services Watches?


    Looks nice - there's some detail on the brand here: http://www.thewatchforum.co.uk/index...howtopic=19335

    [​IMG]

    Vintage Record Geneve...dont know much about this brand except that they were bought by Longines in the 60's or 70's I believe. An ebay score from last year...listed as being from the 30's-40's. Not sure if that's accurate or not...but I was looking for a nice looking vintage manual wind watch and this fit the bill.


    Interesting dial. Nice vintage piece.

    Won't requote again, but great picture of a nice looking watch.

    why isn't the roman numeral for "4", is as "IIII".

    My Roman is rusty, but isn't it "IV"

    FAILwatch?

    'IIII' is usually (but not always) used on clock and watch faces as it is believed to visually balance better opposite 'VIII' than 'IV' would.
