Omega Seamaster today…
Thanks for the feedback! It's the Edizione Venezia. I keep hanging on to this watch because I'm quite emotionally invested in it. In the midst of the absolute best holiday trip Mrs. Jones and I have ever experienced, I was in Venice on my 60th birthday (so I bought myself a nice present at the Omega Boutique at San Marcos Square), which was also the year of the 60th anniversary of Omega choosing the hippocampus figure to feature prominently in its Professional line of watches. And Omega chose the hippocampus as a symbol of exploration and adventure because it figures so prominently in Venice, and Venice has been one of the most important seafaring cities in the history of humankind.
Here's a photo of the back of the watch. The etched hippocampus is practically invisible in most circumstances...this shot was taken at just the right angle to show the etching as clearly as possible.
The decorative vine-like features are taken from Venice's official flag
WFH with this one today.
Best OP IMO
Back in the office.
I think I recognize that one. A 30t2 SC, as I recall.
Y'all have a great Tuesday
I always see and learn new stuff when I visit California. Today in our hotel room, it's one of these new fangled, pressurized, 1 gallon per flush toilets!
I'm sure it's got it's compromises, but so far it's working good for me and Mrs. Lou P!
It's Tuesday after all!
Always love getting this back on my wrist after rotation. Happy Tuesday folks.
Good evening….one of my favourite watches…. From 1973….
Back on the road with the Japanese explorer.
Sun were one of the really great innovators of the early 1980s with their workstations and later servers. When Sun UK consisted of two people in a pokey office they had no demo facilities and brought prospective customers up to our place in the Cambridge Fens to see the hardware and standard software. We were working on porting our CADCAM system to Sun -- but as it was top secret I clearly couldn't show anyone that. Another thing I had to keep quiet about was that the Suns at that time only ran on 110V at the time and we had 240/110 transformers for each one.
Here is the MRC finger pointing to the the Motorola 68010 processor of a Sun 2/120 I used at work 1984-5 and at home 1986-1993, with added Heuer Carrera.
This is not as easy as it used to be. And I have a vintage Seamaster on the way in.
