    After about a decade of contemplating if I wanted to spend $225 on the strap and $285 on the clasp, I went to a local AD yesterday and tried them on and was blown away. The curved endpieces make a huge difference, no more gap between the springbar and the bezel.

    Loving it today on Throwback Thursday.

    Felt heavy yesterday. I am no lighter today.

    [​IMG]

    This pic is seven years old and both focus (or maybe more like - too few pixels) and colours are off. Still a wonderful and hefty piece of Omega history. Corderoy of course - or maybe i it was tweed... It was not a wet suit I am sure.

    Funnily, I don't wear this one as much as I should. So not likely me on IG, but the lollipop is definitely the draw to this reference.

    Hey, don't see it as you didn't win the auction. See it as I didn't lose it instead. Better? :)

    Next time let me know and I'll keep away!! :)

    I'll contend myself in knowing that I at least managed to cost you a few kronor ;)

    Anyway, I am happy to see the watch on OF. A lot of nice pieces on that auction, perhaps unsurprising that most of them went rather expensive in the end :(


    A recent discount buy here:

    Turned out rather well after some sanding paper and Brasso on the plexi and a good soak in warm soap water:

    A shame that the bezels for these apparently are unavailable :(
