    Now this qualifies as a daily wearer. Someone was asking if a vintage Speedmaster could fit the bill as a "daily beater". Firstly, I hate the term "beater" especially if it involves valuable, irreplaceable vintage pieces. What you have done really makes this watch an everyday go to, save the bezel. If you ding that, a few $$$ will go out the window.

    This guy finds an Omega on the beach. All I ever find is a broken plastic shovel from some kids plastic beach fun set.

    The platinum has so much heft! I think it'd be extremely tempting over a patek annual calendar...

    I've loved this watch since I first saw it in 1984 on Magnum P.I., season 4. But I adored it from afar, fearing a 40mm watch would be too small on my 7 3/4" wrist. Instead I bought a Rolex DSSD. I had been wearing Omega Seamasters exclusively for more than a decade, 43.5mm up to 45.5mm. I liked the wrist presence, the style, and the prices.

    As often happens, my tastes changed and I was no longer looking for a watch that entered a room before I dd. I wanted style, but also a little bit of subtlety. Never bonded with the DSSD, having bought it for it's insane specs. But the geometry was all wrong - too tall a watch and overly bulky, at a time when I was looking for elegance. A little over a year ago I traded the DSSD straight up for the GMT Master II, sent it to Rolex for service that included new hands and dial, and here I am. Two watch rotation; the GMT and a Speedmaster. :)
