Well this is a pr0n thread after all
The movement itself is less loud than the other watches in my possession (Ebay acquirements of Slava, Zim Pobeda and Vostok), but the movement of the rotor is surprisingly loud.
That is the new one that was just introduced on Hodinkee huh?
I am not sure I would go for the Hamilton over just picking up a nice vintage watch somewhere...
Vintages scare me. I am way too anal to deal with that.
You read my mind! I am still weighing the pros and cons, but a nice vintage omega/rolex would have more character than said hamilton methinks.
Dilemma - I have yet to try either on my wrist (Tuesday), but I love the aesthetics of the DateJust from the 90's more than the modern ones which have a bulkier looking dial.
The reason why I'm not completely sold on the older? Well, I want a jubilee band and hear all about the stretching. So, if I find a 90's DateJust in mint condition, should I not worry about the Jubilee band? Or should this be a serious concern of mine?
ya sometimes the vintages can be problematic.... but there are pros and cons to both options here... FWIW I do like the Hamilton!
I think you just have to budget appropriately or just have a good relationship with a watchmaker who does some vintage selling as well.
+1... definitely. My local jeweler has been dealing with my family for years (3 generations). It's very helpful to have a good rapport with someone whom you can trust... makes buying vintage MUCH easier.
there is one of the USS Omega's for sale in my small time paper today!
never heard of it, now this post...coincidinky
Picked up and Oris Artelier Small second date, with gold hands on the weekend.
