    I posted this watch in the what i purchased section with the sellers pic and I picked it up today from the UPS shop. To say I am happy is an understatement as it is way better than I expected from the sellers pics. OF even played a part in the purchase. I purchased of eBay on an make an offer deal, the seller came back with a counter offer of 1 cent more (go Figure) but I bought the watch. When it came time to pay the shipping was under the eBay shipping logistics and added nearly $120 to the cost of the watch. I arced up, the seller arced up and the deal almost fell apart. I suggested that he forget eBay and sell direct to me and he said that this was not possible because he could not get my email to send me a Paypal invoice etc. Cut a long story short I had a brain wave and googled "barking mad" no good, googled "barking mad omega forum" bingo. Sent the seller a message and he contacted me via the forum. End result below:D Sharp as, I doubt it has ever been polished:)

    "collectors" used to rag on this reference but I've been watching prices and the jokes on them. This ^^ and the Sub are Rolex.

    It's probably one of the 2 or 3 most perfect wristwatches ever created. No watch feels more balanced on my wrist.

    Btw - hot dial /Paris

    Until I'm disabused of the notion, I will remain convinced Geno has a hot tub time machine.

    Have you no shame, man!?!
