    in stitches> I love the blue bezel one you showed in the picture, had one a few years ago, might get one again at some point - if i find that pot of gold. I would never ever wear a planet ocean though

    Have you seen yet a new version of Seamaster Pro with ceramic bezel? It is really gorgeous.

    I have this one and I like it. I prefer this one over the black face model and the PO's.

    Would your plan be to put it up on B/S?

    if by B/S, you mean my wrist and my dresser drawer, then yes, absolutely.

    I generally find they look too dated too soon because they seemed to have a different style almost every decade and far too many 007 limited editions in batches of 10,000 (which isn't very limited). But for $500 its a no brainer, unless its in horrible condition I say go for it.

    Hoping to see some wrist shots soon. I've had mine for a few weeks and I love this watch!

    Not the best photo but here is a quick wrist shot taken before all the plastic was off.

    So many beautiful watches... you guys are feeding my addiction.

    I'll be able to throw a picture of mine in as soon as I receive it. At 17, I can't quite afford to spend thousands on a watch, so I started looking into vintage. I'm quite pleased with what I picked up.

    You will love that freakin watch! I stop and look at it all the time even when I don't care what time it is. I'm looking forward to hearing some good news about an AP arriving at your home in a few months! Keep saving its worth it!
    Vintage is a great way to go to start a collection. There are lots of possibilities and you are not likely to see the same watch on lots of other people. Good luck and I look forward to seeing pix of your vintage watch soon.

    I have the exact watch, it is kind of nice that as an additional feature Omegas actually keep time! It is my everyday and travel watch, very low key to the un-initiated also.
