    With the local heatwave making things a bit sticky, this would be my goto watch. Small and light.

    Form-wise, it's not far off from an Apple watch :)

    And in its time it was pretty cutting-edge. Here's a fascinating article on the Marine Chronometer by the Forum's own @Bill Sohne

    Beyond cutting edge J in LA. An incredible application of technology and watchmaking IMHO. And still one of the most accurate personal timepieces you can wear. Outside of time radio signal vanishingly few watches could match it. Plus at the time your watch was crazy money. Like you could buy ten Rolex Subs for the price crazy money. Omega's contribution to that period of quartz timekeeping innovation is unmatched in the industry anywhere in the world.

    And sadly too often forgotten. Including by Omega themselves. Check out their history timeline on their official website and you'll find your watch, but they don't even mention the Q word. Or any of their other innovations of that time. I understand the marketing aspect of it all, because quartz is now seen as "cheap and nasty" and below "real" horology, but that's a real pity IMHO.

    This for the evening (and the rest of the week probably!). The dial just sings in the twilight.
