    Hello im Norm from Canada.
    Been lurking for a while and love the info and nice people everywhere. (Especially the vintage sections)
    My humble collection so far: omega speedmaster pro 861, omega speedmaster triple date, rolex datejust, tudor blackbay, armida a7, seiko srp461, TAG aquaracer chrono, WWII hamilton vintage
    Looking to add more omegas to my collection eventually like a x33. Also want to start going into vintage.
    Thanks for the read!

    The triple date Speedmaster doesn't get a lot of love around here but I'm a fan, here's mine...

    Hard watch to photograph!

    Its a shame theres so little love for it. Great watch with an interesting combination of complications.
    I had to take a page out of teenage girls and their instagram obsession to really bring that blue dial out. The contrast between the high polished case and dark dial really gets me.

    Hello all!

    I'm Sean....decided to finally create an account and start participating instead of just lurking. Only have one watch so far.....Omega Seamaster 300m I got last year. Love it! In fact, my wife gets mad at me for staring at it....

    I'm not as good at photography as you guys...but here are a few pics I have taken with my phone.....

    Welcome to the OF Sean! Very nice SM 300-your photo skills will improve if you continue to post here!
    Are you also a Canuck like Norms? (everyone say "NORM!") You had mentioned elsewhere you were a Habs fan...and of course, you supported Canada when it won the gold medals in Olympic Hockey?

    Thanks! Already making plans to take some better photos!

    Grew up in the states right on the canadian border...45 minutes from Montreal. Fell in love with the habs as a little kid and have watched them religiously ever since. I was torn for the olympics...wanted USA to pull it off but seeing Price and Subban win gold was hard to complain about!

    Hi Barry here.....
    Found this forum because I just bought my first Omega. I'm retired and live in Canada near Toronto.

    There's the Omega

    [​IMG]

    Before this I bought this Longines because I like the looks and also the history of the original owner (Lt. Col. HGB de Kruyff van Dorssen)

    [​IMG]

    This is what I bought to wear at my daughters wedding (Dec 2013)

    [​IMG]

    That's all I could afford over the last 12 months. There's more but I think that is enough.
