    The Tintin model was the watch that got me into watches - I was browsing the Omega back catalogue and saw thi color pattern which reminded me of the Tintin comics I grew up reading. Being new to watches, you can imagine my surprise when I found out how impossible it is to find a Tintin, never mind the crazy rise in price it's seen over the last couple years (used to be 3-4K and now in the low 10's).

    I gave up on the idea of owning one and bought a 3861.

    Months later by chance I found someone selling a Tintin dial and I picked that up, along with a 1863 (I would scratch a hesalite every day I'm so clumsy).

    After a quick dial swap at Manfredi, I'm a happy camper with my new daily!

    You were very lucky to find that dial, congrats on a nice mod. I like the tin-tin and racing dials for the splash of color, like wearing a bold tie with a grey flannel suit.

    Nice... I’ve held fast to the idea that if I were to acquire another speedie ... this would be it.
