    I got all these on SC except one.

    One or two could do with a fettle, but they all run rather well.

    I'm finding the Mk IV strangely alluring.

    I agree, although they're harder to come by than the "4.5". I'd like one of them - I think the Cal 1040 versions (with the combined running secs and 24hr indicator subdial) are the nicest of the lot. The Mk III has that, and it's a beautiful dial... but a gargantuan case and not for everyone. The Mk IV has a much trimmer profile.

    Some of the Cal 1040 Seamaster chronos are really nice too.

    Don't have any Omega's in the collection these days, I had a SMP pre Bond and a 42mm PO, but I would like a nice SM300 on a bracelet.

    Re: Show us your Omega's.....

    Top thread, makes me like mine even more now. Always flirting with changing mine but can't think of a better brand for the money TBH.

    Had a few over the last 2 years:-

    2254 - My first good watch (miss it a lot now, probably THE most desirable modern Seamater)
    2599 - Chunky beast (miss this one too, would really like another)
    PO45 on rubber - A bit of a Casino Royale moment
    2220.80 - Co-Ax Bond - bought brand new, kept for a month then traded WITH the 2254 for a B'ling CA
    2201.50 - Probably the best allround PO (had a few running issues and an annoyingly off-set bezel)
    2531 - Actually prefer this to the 2254 and deffo preferred to the PO, THE classic modern Seamaster

    Would love a Speedy Pro but as I only own one watch at a time, think I would have to look after it more than the Seamaster where water is concerned. I think my absolute grail and compromise watch would be the rare-as-rocking-horse-do-dos Speedy Racing 3552.59 (please PM me if you have one you want to sell) :)

    Sorry no pics, will be working on this at the weekend

    Re: Show us your Omega's.....

    My only one, still very happy though!



    After taking the pic I decided to thoroughly clean it :roll:

    Re: Show us your Omega's.....

    Hi all,

    What a lovely bunch 8)

    Here's a couple of mine to start with, sorry they have marks on them but I do like to wear them :blackeye:

    The Snoopy was purchased brand new by me, it was in daily use until the 69 Speedy came along and that is now my everyday watch.

    Has anyone else got pictures of a 2531 on anything other than its bracelet?

    That one of Ron's looks really good on carbon.

    Sorry, couldn't find a newer or larger "Show us your Omegas" thread to post to!

    Constellation Pie Pan, vintage Seamaster, modern Seamaster and Speedy Moon ..



    Not the best pics, struggling to photograph them nicely, need more practise.

    Hi there
    Thanks for the compliment itís the Aqua Terra 8500 ref 231.10.42.21.06.001. Grey Teak Dial. Depending on the light it either flicks between light grey to a darker shade. On the bracelet it looks more dressy in my opinion as you get light reflection from the bracelet as well as the angle work on the dial batons. I picked the deep grey sail effect strap as I think it makes it a touch more sporty. It feels quality all in all.
    Post this model theyíve modernised by putting in horizontal strips , changing crown and I think complete in house but Iím not an expert.
    Picked this up in a trade from the site at very good value. Some people still of course love the old 2500ís and I have to say the blue Dials are lovely.

    My first mechanical watch, worn daily for many years and one of very few Iíll never sell.

    I decided to give it a new lease of life though. Iíve loved it on the bracelet and it looks like new, as does the rest of the watch, since a full Omega service last year.



    I fancied leather though. And my, what leather! A Dangerous9 custom strap in Teju and Sharkskin. Stupidly expensive, a ridiculously long wait and impossible to justify in any logical terms. I mean, no one will ever even see the blue! However, it feels amazing, looks awesome up close and just makes me happy.

    So, hereís to many more memories with my little, not the real deal, but very special (to me) Speedmaster!

    I've got a few Omegas. Including at least one that most people really don't like



    My grandfathers



    My late fathers 21st birthday present



    My bargain of the century blingy that I almost never wear, but it only cost me £200 for quite a chunk of gold.



    Speedy of course



    And the Marmite one that divides opinion. I liked the blue dial

    Funny how Iíve just stumbled on my very first post 9 years ago.

    That Planet Ocean was my first proper watch but itís long gone now. Signing up to this forum gets you that way.

    Omegas Iíve owned that are now gone:

    Planet Ocean (2500)
    Speedy pro (twice gone)
    Seamaster (original blue Ďbondí one and the co-axial version)
    A pretty rare titanium seamaster (2232.30.00)
    A Railmaster
    And finally an aqua terra

    Only one left is another speedy pro. 3rd one Iíve owned. I donít think this well ever go now. Iíve got too many strap/bracelet options for it

    Examined my IWW customised & PVD'd 1968 Omega Seamaster 300 Model 166024-67 Caliber 565 today; case back removed for first time to check the caliber and model reference:




















    Rolex case knife used to sharpen a matchstick - which then used to compress springbars without scratching the lugs' PVD finish

    Bezel fitted with custom insert

    Dial was re-lumed by IWW












    Appears to have correct attributes.

    Probably not one for the purists, but I think that looks great. I think black PVD works well on divers... even had thoughts about PVD Submariners/Sea-Dwellers, and how I wouldnít mind if they were scuffed up a bit...

    This is a forum watch bought from, and subsequently sold back on to here a couple of years, I hope itís still around?

    Such a cool watch, was just a bit too mullered around the lugs for me to want to keep, but a bargain all the same...
