    My apologies for the crap image quality, I just snapped this with my phone. 1980 Omega Geneve on brown croc strap, just back from being serviced. It was originally my dad's. [​IMG]

    I'm deciding between the 42mm GMT and the 214 (below - its a 45mm) - any comments are welcome:

    I am a fan of the 42. I think in a few years, the larger breed of watches will be gone. 42 is a good, classic size.

    yes
    Switched my Chronoscope to a vintage green Zenith strap for something different: [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Meh on the band color. The MB is so sleek it almost cries out for a plain old black strap. Also, damn you for reinforcing how badly I want one of those damn things.

    is this a new model or vintage?

    Indeed.
    Longines, Double Pommes they were once called, IIRC.

    Do the large and small hands happen to perfectly coincide or how do you read time on that thing? Looks good, though!

    the markers are every 5 minutes and the single hand tapers very thin... it can be easily read to 1.5minute precision

    +1. Also, your wrist is too small for it; give it to me instead.
