    Bought this and put it on the rubber strap as a holiday watch and very pleased with it. Rather have it than the equivalent modern Rolex to be honest

    Do you always buy watches three at a time?!

    My first aerospace arrived this week, after a trip to a boutique for an extra couple of links it's now on my wrist and I'm loving it although it doesn't feel like I'm wearing it due to how light it is

    Love that Matt. Had an identical watch that I let go and wished I hadn't. Still love that dial. Enjoy

The rotor makes a lovely light 'ratchet' sound when it's winding.



    It's amazing what a bit of a polish and a decent strap can do. This is what the eBay picture looked like - no wonder I was the only bidder.

    What did you use to polish this up? The result is amazing! Lovely watch, enjoy.

    I'm very new to all of this but I have been picking up a few vintage pieces whenever I can get them for the right money, I picked up this little fella the other day, I think it's especially nice. Omega Geneve, 1957, cal 267, manual wind. All original condition on black crocodile strap. Sorry about the crap photos, I need to work on my camera skills!

    Thanks. I just did what I've learned on here. On the acrylic crystal I used a Boots nail buffing block, initially the grade 2 side because the scratches were deep. It looks like you've completely ruined the crystal as it goes opaque. Once the scratches were out I used Polywatch to polish it up to a shine. Then I put some tape over the crystal to mask it and used a soft cloth with Brasso on it to polish the stainless steel case (I didn't have a Cape Cod cloth to hand). I took quite a bit of time doing each facet and curve one at a time, wrapping the cloth around a small stick at some points. The case is scratched enough that it would probably benefit from proper refinishing, which is way beyond me, but it actually has lots of tiny facets and very sharp edges that I wouldn't want to lose. I then used a bit of alcohol based cleaning fluid to remove any remaining dirt.

    Sounds like a lot of work but it was less than an hour.

    PS Your Omega Geneve looks lovely - no need to polish that one up :)

    Yeah Alfa the Geneve is good the way it is, I also picked up this but have some scratches on the Crystal that I would like to sort rather than replacing it as its the original Crystal.

    That looks great as well. I'm sure you'll get lots of advice on here, there are some world experts in old Omegas. I don't even know if the crystal is acrylic. I do know you have to be very careful with finishing those cases. If you do a search on the forum you'll find some other threads where people have renovated similar watches I think.

    Picked this one up recently as an occasional weekender.
    Rather nice and pretty comfy despite its size.

    I've got one too, brings together 2 of my favourite features - World Map and digital hands. Also got one of these:

    Loving this in the metal. Just bought an hour ago. It's going to herald the demise of my BLNR I'm sure - super cool multi coloured bezel and the best bit - no date bubble! :)

    I'm assuming that came via vouchers/a healthy discount but still, I want to be your kind of broke Ryan and still buying watches like this 😀

    Nice one Ryan, although I'm not sure it's a replacement for a BLNR. A nice position to be in being able to try all these new watches with no/minimal loss.

    Yep RRP is 5320 and it cost me 3575 so I can't see me losing much on it when I decide to flip it (in about a week lol!).

    For me it's much more special feeling than the BLNR and doesn't wear so tall on the strap. Although I'm not sure why they put all the dashes around the bezel. It's the date bubble that annoys me on the BLNR

    Did you ever buy that Speedmaster Co-axial Moonphase ? Watchfinder have one about 700 below RRP - for some reason I thought of you when I saw it. Anyone buying at RRP and then flipping would have lost about 25% at those prices.

    Nope although I could get it for 4800 vs RRP of 7210 on strap. It's too tall IMHO.

    took about 14 days from ordering to arrival, best bit was the cost- $35 US including postage.
    Andrea is great to deal with, and this nubuck strap is soft leather lined and stitched to match the colour of the watch
    chuffed Goat, you might say.

    I reckon it's a perfect alternative to the BLNR. Less common and ticks most of the same boxes. "Replacement" maybe not - but "alternative" certainly

    You have done well there, I especially like the no radiations watch. I would have bought that but by the time I saw it there were already about four people ahead of me on the dibs list.

    There are some great discontinued models, I have done a WTB for a Smiths Radio Room, but no luck yet.

    I wasnt that quick off the draw and couldnt believe i was first! I love my TF watches and have owned quite a few and loved them all, I have another on its way :)

    I am a big fan of the radio room too, will hopefully get one too (one day)

    Quite an appropriate photo for a watch I bought last week from MADDOG after a bit too much whisky...



    Luckily I think it's great!
