    Since researching straight lugged 300s is rather difficult, I would love to have a thread dedicated to pics, research, and other members watches for reference purposes for the community.

    With the general 300 thread being awesome, for those trying to find out about 2913, 14755, and 165.014 it can rather challenging to dig through the archive to get to relevant information.

    As the Omega train continues to gain speed, I think that we will see more and more 300 Frankens pop up, and an easily sourced thread will help current and future members as they research these watches.

    The amount of knowledge on bezel alone is invaluable to the community.

    My 14755 (confirmation to come after @Pahawi delivers his opener) FAP.

    If you open up a thread for every club you could be in it would become quite frustrating to be here. I mean for the rest of us :)

    I'll start with my recently acquired straight lug CK14755-61. This is one of the earliest production of 14755s with the 61' caseback. This early 14755 uses a straight second hand which was generally reserved for CK2913. I believe that this watch came out of the Omega factory looking like this. If true, this also supports some theories that Omega never wastes any part. Will snap a pic of the archive when I get it.

    No extract? Does it mean you didn't order one? Or it doesn't exist?
