    First post in here. Have two vintage Omegas on the way so trying to get some wear out of my Longines Master Collection before those arrive and steal all the wrist time.

    iPhone pics, forgive me sah.

    Love that Seamaster. Is it a redial?

    It is admittedly a redial -- original case, crown, etc. otherwise though. It just looks so damn pretty and I bought it more for that reason than to be a collector's item. I am putting a black croc strap on it and designating it as my formal watch. Or whenever I wear my black Barker Black Archdales, really.

    Quite a bit of travel lately to some good watch destinations (HK, Singapore, London). Had the opportunity to try on the new 41mm RO and RO chrono; I find the new cases unnecessarily big and the dial balance off, with the chrono registers too far spaced from the bezel. Even though AP was a primary driver of the big watch, in 2012 I almost find the upsizing of their cases to be a cynical yet delayed reaction to the general upsizing of cases. I wish they had maintained a more pronounced demcarcation between the RO and ROO lines.

    In related news, I just pulled the trigger yesterday on the new 15202... will take delivery in 2 weeks when in the US. :)

    Hey guys, I'm really liking the look of the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean but stumbled upon this watch by Christopher Ward,
    http://www.christopherward-usa.com/men/view-all-mens/c60-cosc-sks.html
    I'm wondering if the difference in quality is worth the difference in price or if I should keep saving up for the Omega. Any input is much appreciated. Thanks.

    Details? This would go nicely with my Gaddafi chonograph.
