    Hello all,

    I just joined the forum and wanted to say hi. I own two Omegas. a 1970's Geneva Stingray 166.122 and a 1990's Seamaster 300M 2532.80. Always been a fan of Omega's and glad I found this forum.

    Thank you,
    Sam

    Thanks, that's top photo is very interesting! I´m no Omega expert (I just like most of them) and to be quite honest I´d never heard of the Geneva Stingray...but I like it! A rather unusual watch! Cheers and welcome!

    Thanks, yes it's an odd duck but interesting. I don't have the original bracelet or strap so that's an aftermarket. I just had a full service done to it and it works perfectly, just shows it's age.

    Thanks and good question, but tough one to answer :)

    For Omega a 1950's speedmaster would be perfect
    For Rolex a Milgauss
    And in general, I'm an engineer and fascinated by mechanical devices so a vintage tourbillon, any make is fine :)

    Welcome to the forum. Agree with all who've said you'll learn a lot and start down the rabbit hole. :thumbsup:
