    Newly arrived Montre d'Aeronef Type 20.
    As I feared, it wears a shade big.

    Ending the day with a freshly caught Omega Officer. Exactly 70 years since a Swedish guy with the name Torsten made his inscriptions to the case back. image.jpg

    Sure it's not supposed to be a desk clock or something?

    It's the dashboard clock of a Halloweenmobile.

    It's only 63mm... I think it will work with the right strap.

    Delivered from Sweden I presume? Wondered who swept it up for almost nothing. Had my eyes on it, but never got around asking the seller for better pictures. Never seen that colour dial before. Congrats!

    Inspired by the Blitzer I will use my sparkling but lowly 752 version the rest of the night. As punishment for not getting the rarer colour dial 751.... I am not bitter...

    I see what the problem is here. Alex should already have spotted this but, that's actually a dart board. :rolleyes:

    Don't think any strap can hold that. You going to need duct tape.:D

    Think I've got a spare pendulum for that somewhere.

    Still on my wrist this morning. 31mm diameter is on the small side, and feels very uncommon when you are used to huge slabs of steel at +40mm, but it has great readability even for a man not longer in his youth.
    70 years old, completely original/unrestored, and still ticking and looking good.... I am truly impressed with the build quality of these wartime Omegas (the mark at 8'o clock is a chip in the crystal, and not a spot on the dial)!
