    After posting a few failed eBay auctions trying to find a decent vintage Omega, an incredible forum member sent me a PM telling me about a 1958 he had. I was instantly interested in the watch, and after showing me some photos - I was in love. The watch is all correct minus a replaced Omega crystal. The watch has a gorgeous patina and is my first automatic and most importantly - my first Omega! As a bonus, he gave me an extra strap AND a carrying case! I am so happy I signed up for the forums, and I am absolutely in love with my first vintage Omega!

    If I had that watch, I would never sell it to anybody.
    Nice and rare seamaster with arrow head hour markers. Congrats.

    Love it, excellent start!

    Reminds me of my first, also a '58, and also bought from a fine Ω-F member 17 months ago...

    'Twas the start of a highly gratifying (obsessive :confused:) foray into vintage...:)

    Nice one, I do like the coathanger s on these, my favourite font and the dial is in awesome condition.
    Do you know the brand of the brown strap?

    Congrats on a great purchase! Persistence pays off, avoid the dogs and wait for the gems. I'm guessing this won't be your last post filled with vintage watch pictures of a new purchase.

    As soon as I get home, I'll take a peek. I believe it was four letters that started with T
