    Hi OF,

    I’m a 30 years old french guy, with compulsive mechanical watch issues. After almost 7 years of reading (long-time lurker you said ? :D ), I finally dare to participate.

    On a personal level I’m a plant biologist, coming fom France (which explain the bad english skills, but do not excuse it !).

    I have a preference for watches from the 40’s through the 60’s, and not only Omega(s). I have awful photography skills, but I’ll post some pictures in the appropriate threads, starting with my favourite one... Be careful, radium content :D

    But for my first pic here, needed to be an Omega, so be it :

    Omega .jpg

    10 points for the person identifying the watch brutally cut by my post-prod photography skills ( Told you ! :whistling:)

    Thanks everyone for the amount of information here, it’s a true goldmine !

    Welcome! That lovely piece could also be shared on the thread “small things Radium and Beautiful...“ for some reason, I am not able to copy thread links anymore - maybe my new phone :cautious: but you could do a site search if you like looking at these pieces

    Thank you all for the warm welcome !
    @OMEGuy There's a connection to the waterproof and the sea.... But not Omega :whipped:

    Longines Marine Nationale, ref 5774

    @DaveK Unfortunately this club is only for 32-34mm watches, and this Omega is a little too big with its 35 mm case... But I've shared other pieces in this thread :whistling:

    @Lacazema Nous sommes partout ;)

    Welcome from another plant-person! Lettuce is my primary but I do some tomato and melon work also. I go for a bit more modern watch as water resistance is key for me.
