    I love the variety of designs, these are my current dozen. I'd like to add a flightmaster 911 and a pre-moon Speedmaster.

    This and some of the other posts demonstrates how diverse Omega can be, great stuff.

    That's a beautiful watch right there!

    I'm kind of in the Omega club but would be ashamed to put a picture up amongst this company!

    One of my favourites is the Speedy with the orange and red, like TGV had (if anyone follows him?)

    The one and only Omega in my current very small collection, though I really really (like really) want a Globemaster. Gutted to hear they will get even further away from me come March

    It is a Schumacher The Legend. It belongs to a very close friend! He only got it after I pressured him into making an offer! It really is a beauty..
    the movement is a 3301.. not the most bulletproof one but an automatic, column wheel chrono non the less

    Love Omegas, my favourite brand. It's amazing how improved the modern watches are over the older stuff.

    I realise you are a forum saint who selflessly helps many to achieve their Omega dreams but I have to say there are many of us who would disagree with that or at least modify it a bit. They have made some mundane stuff in the past for sure but there is also earlier stuff which makes some of the current offerings look unnecessarily thick and over blinged. There goes my chance of a cheap new Omega forever, doh!

    Just these two at the moment for me. The speedmaster is a classic but the SM300 master is a class above with regard to finishing.

    My first and only Omega;



    When it arrived I found the timekeeping out so sent it for a full service and a tidy up, whilst it was away I sourced a new bezel assembly and it arrived back a different watch and running within 2 seconds per day

    The brilliant part is I still wear it and enjoy it without worry, its the most comfortable watch I have owned and feels so well put together, I also think that it is a very interesting watch with its wave dial, skeleton hands, domed crystal and the bracelet is not the common oyster type seen on most other dive watches,

    Safe to say I have bonded with this one, and it didnt break the bank

    A few pics along the journey

    When it arrived;



    New bezel sourced;



    Away at Genesis;

























    And back on the wrist;





    Hope nobody minds me posting all this in this thread, hopefully some will find it interesting that you can pick up and enjoy 15-20yr old watches

    And I didnt mention 'Bond' once :)

    I have a few...

    One, a modern classic.




    One, a vintage stunner.




    And two standard vintage models which hold their own!

    Have had many over the years and still probably my brand of choice although they are getting a bit chunky for my twig like wrists.















    And a Skyfall Aqua Terra that I cant find any pictures for.

    The Railmaster 36.2 can quite happily be my one and only watch.

    I like many Omegas (not all, but more than I don't I think)

    My current ones :







    And a couple I've owned, but parted with :

    Whilst sword hands are nice, some of us like having skeletons in our watch box ;)
    It's just a matter of time...

    I should know, I've had 4 different SMP watches with the skeleton hands. I'm not saying they should have stuck with the sword hands either, just saying that personally the watch would be better off with something different.

    Very nice, that one has grown on me a lot and re-instates the waves which I love. Maybe I am thinking of someone else but weren't you saying a short while back that you had gone off Omegas as you considered the current Rolex output a clear cut above? If so it obviously hasn't stopped you buying Omegas!

    The waves on the dial are a copy of the Copacabana beachfront pattern - about the 5 pic down on the link:

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copa...Copacabana.JPG


    I've never gone off Omega. I love them, especially the SMP 300m range. I think I was just expressing (or trying to) that like for like on new models I still perceive that Rolex have the edge.
    It's just a matter of time...
