    While browsing old Omega's ads, I've found the following from end of 50s
    >> look here
    I'm wondering if "troubadour" was a name ever used by Omega or just a fantasy of the local marketing departement

    To illustrate, my question or entertain people that are not interested by my question, here is a troubadour from a colouring book that you can download, print and colour to your taste

    Here is the ad in question:

    I will assume this is either a Swiss or French market ad. Never heard the model name "Troubadour" used before. It looks like a standard 18K 30mm manual wind Omega. Most versions never had names, at least not ones recognized in the Omega Database or A Journey Through Time.

    Probably just the marketing department.

    Thanks for the answer, so if I ever want to wear a troubadour, I'll have to look somewhere else

    To fully close the loop, here is a sample of my skills on colouring

    My favourite troubadour-based procrastination isnt in a colouring book, it's in a nerdy web comic:

    Quite another question is why on earth did they think that was a buccaneer watch.::confused2::::confused2::::confused2::
