    Found an original advert. Amazing how different the prices for these old gems go for nowadays.

    Thanks Mark,

    He said it had been in his car ashtray for years from the original owner of the car he purchased it from, until he started working here he never bothered with it until he found out I was a "watch guy".He asked me if I wanted to buy it for $25.00. @ the time I had no idea what it was (as the crystal was in very poor state couldn't read the dial) just liked the color scheme.Took some Poly Watch to it & viola this is the result.
    It still isn't worth much but it's a looker & in pretty outstanding condition for it's age

    Look @ this Bad A$$ GMT hand

    ? you mean originally it didn't sell well for Omega ? I don't see how either.
    I think it's 1 of Omegas best, that & the dog leg Pie Pan. Both are a must have for me. 1 day I will have both.
