    This one was found, in pieces, in a metal box marked OMEGA. In the box were 3 or 4 mid-50s vintage Omega bumper movements, all in pieces. This all was amongst the stuff I acquired from my late father's estate. So this watch had sat in that box for over 40 years. Surprisingly, it was all there, except for the case. I put it all together, and it sat until OB poster Tritium from Madrid sent me a PM that he had an extra (NOS) case. As to the bracelet? About 32 years ago, a local watch material supplier closed up, and I bought a bunch of older style watch bracelets, along with a truck load of other stuff. You asked about the kind of bracelet. I had to check. I found it in my stash, again, NOS. the trade mark on it says STL, and beyond that, I know nothing. Suits the watch, I think. I succumbed to temptation, re-set the calendar, and I'll wear it for a while.

    Along with the Omega, I'm wearing my 27-year old Rolex Date-Just which I serviced in November 2016. After one regulation and re-set in late November, as of today, it is 30-seconds fast. It gained 3 seconds in February!

    Since finding the hands all stacked up yesterday, I just had to put it on for a posed shot. Debating keeping it this way until the baby's born! ::psy::

    More so an occasion guy, but definitely find myself wearing two watches most days... even if the second is putting on my G-Shock once I get home (have two little ones...)

    Navitimer 01 LE from 2016.

    That's a nice black colored navitimer..I believe the traditional is 46 mm?Definitely a top 10 chrono watch of all time...Breitling has the hefty feel on the wrist which is nice for sometime but I simply can't wear it daily....Mine is a 44 mm which a tungsten ring and solid caseback which may contribute to it...don't know if u have that issue.
