The last year and a half have brought huge changes in my life. I moved from Chicago to Vancouver, left my practice as an attorney and after a great deal of time and sacrifice, finally became a barrister & solicitor in Canada. All the while working under the limitations and complications of the pandemic. To commemorate the occasion I'm naturally wasting money on another watch I don't need. I mean of course I need another watch, doesn't everyone? My collection consists of three classic Seamasters: (1) the recent 126.96.36.199.03.001 in vibrant blue with a rubber strap, an absolutely beautiful watch, but a touch large for my wrist; (2) the 2nd generation (depending on what you consider the first generation) Bond 2531.80.00, which is a timeless collector's piece but I find looks dull at certain times; (3) the wholly underrated 2264.50.00 "Ray Donovan", probably my favourite, the dial is so cool and its thin and light and dressy and I never thought I would love a quartz but I do. My contenders are as follows: (1) Obvious reasons - Vancouver, the red and white is totally different, thinking a 36 mm for a change. I know some people absolutely hate this watch, and I vacillate from adoring it to meh-ing it. Is it a sleeper Omega like the "Ray Donovan" or just lazy hack work to acknowledge the 2010 Olympics? 2. Abandon the Seamasters and go with an unusual, though oversized Speedmaster Broad Arrow, reminds me of an Explorer II but less than half the price. 3. A classic and generally underrated Railmaster. 4. Screw Omega, jump up in price and invest in a no date, no frills, Rolex Perpetual Oyster. Honestly I've never seen myself as a Rolex guy.
