    Wolf winders are great, long lasting, functional winders with good after sales support if needed.
    Buy with no hesitation.:slayer:

    And now, it would appear that I am to embark on a quest fraught with the risk, or perhaps certainty, of utter ruin.

    its a damn fine watch, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder. either way, you aught to buy one for yourself.

    Stitches, you seem to work with watches (?). What are your opinions on an Omega Seamaster as a first better watch?

    I am not as informed as stitch, or most members active on this thread, but I will give you the short answer.

    It's a solid watch, especially if it's your first watch. As long as it does not hurt your wallet go for it, just don't buy the "007" version.

    I was going for the bond one 2220.80. Would you suggest I take a look at something else, too?

    I remember a lot of members disliking the "007" bonding, but a few liked it. (see what I did there, :cool:)


    Wait for stitcho, gdl, and the rest of the posse to give you feedback before you make a decision.

    Omega makes a solid product, but they have made a lot of goofy "Limited editions"...if one can can consider making thousands of a limited edition watch, actually limited. I find many of their limited editions cheapen the appeal of their watches. I'd skip the 007 editions and get a nice standard edition Seamaster. Just my 2 cent, but buy what you like.

    Thanks. I don't actually want the "007" engraved editions, but just the standard blue/blue wave SMP that's been worn in the films. One thing that worries me is that my wrist is 6'', and I don't want the mid-size. Gotta dig through the watch forums!

    Seamasters come up frequently on TZ for sale. You should be able to find them for under 2k. Consider a Planet Ocean?

    I am not a fan of the the Seamaster personally but think the basic 42mm Planet Ocean is a flawless classic diver - everything seems superior to the Seamaster to me: dial design, case, bracelet and movement. I know we all have different tastes but I can't quite see how someone would hold these two watches in his hands and decide to go with the Seamaster.

    Definitely skip the 007 if you go Seamaster

    im not a huge omega dude, but the seamaster is a fine watch. if you like it, go for it. i echo the opinions above on the 007 and other odd special editions. good luck!


    tehehehe you said tang.
