    Behind the dazzy speedmasters and flashy connies, there is a small paradise.

    It all depends on your definition of “ lesser” of course, and I agree - to some (many?), these ( and other so called “lesser” brands) are just as interesting and collectable, than the high end Omega sub brands

    Of course, if you are collecting on a tight budget, these also allow you to build up an interesting collection

    I agree wholeheartedly, perhaps these are 'lesser' references, but with the addition of hard to find, interesting and textured dials they make for a very satisfactory collection I'm sure and certainly one which won't break the bank whilst putting it together.

    There are no lesser Omegas.

    Thats a really lovely collection and I certainly wouldn't call them lesser. The grey linen dial is beautiful.:thumbsup:

    Yes! Great thread!
    I love seeing some lesser-known Omegas, particularly the Seamasters which come in a vast array of varieties... 20180323_161006.jpg

    I dig the linen dial. I want to find one in immaculate condition one day. Definitely on my collecting bucket list.

    All Omegas are "GREATER" than a bare wrist.

    Odd for me to say now as I don't have an Omega in my collection...

    A shift to watches that were more versatile for my lifestyle (lots of sand, dirt and grubby hands) and also slowly going down the military route...so an Omega will appear sometime if this set is to grow :whistling:

    Those “lesser” Omegas are what gets me excited. I’m not as interested in what the crowd is clamoring for. And your collection is aspirational for me. I love that dark grey dialed Seamaster 600.

    I am fond of my Connies and my 30T2, but this one is so dear to me.
