    found this little guy and the edges are unbelievable. How detail Omega used to have in their finishing was beyond its time

    An absolute beauty. Did you scoop it up or was it already in your sock drawer?

    Lovely watch! And who knows its story.

    Hard to image it would be intentionally abandoned.

    Perhaps dropped off and the owner met some misfortune. :(

    Or if you prefer a happy ending, maybe owner won the lottery and retired to the tropics. ::psy::

    Seeing such cases always reminds me why I detest polished cases so much!

    Congrats to a fantastic find!

    Now sell me your A386, all you have to do is to send a PM. Easy-peasy :)

    The only thing amazing about this post is that it was the 4th reply. Why did it take so long? ;)

    That was my thought, too. It might be what happened. Impossible to forget a watch like this, gorgeous.
