    Some watches I choose to write about just because they’re extremely obscure, unknown and only exist in small numbers or in non-English speaking markets. This watch, the 131.013 is a perfect example of this, a limited production model only sold in Japan with a unique minimalist design. [..]

    That was an especially enjoyable and informative article on a small facet from class of Omega watches I admire very much, the 30mms.

    Was on the fence between adding an Oysterdate Precision or a Seamaster 30 till I read this article last weekend. Immediately searched online and much to my surprise found a pinstripe with beveled lugs still nicely intact on eBay! Pulled the trigger.

    It just arrived from Japan today. Absolutely fell in love with it. Great article! Inspiring. Thank you!
