    Incoming, never seen one before. Omega Content

    So I lusted for a Speedsonic Lobster or 20 years and finally managed to get one a year or so back, a few weeks a go I spotted this on an Italian Auction site.
    It's an Omega Megasonic Lobster in NOS condition, not sure where it has been since 1970 but it also has the English Day wheel and not any other European language.
    First image is the actual watch I bought, others are from Electric Watches website who serviced my Speedsonic.
    Hope you enjoy it

    Delicious slice of 70s Omega there. I have an f300 but in the common 'helmet' case. The lobster case and bracelet on this gives it a great look. Good pick up.

    Oh, that's very, very nice. I too have a soft spot for the lobsters. Quite a find to get one NOS.

    Oh yes I love both these and the Speedsonic! Those lobster case/bracelets are something else. Beautiful condition too, you don't see these often at all.

    Congrats!

    I always find the second hand on these mesmerising to watch. Very similar to watching a spring drive!

    One of the cool things I found about omegas (and specifically speedmasters) is that I continuously see models I've never heard of before, even though I have been paying attention for many, many years!

    That's a cool looking watch.

    I love your slightly eclectic taste in watches. Your threads always throw up something interesting.

    That's very kind, not sure my taste in watches is slightly eclectic, I think it's vastly eclectic

    Well done on the find, but what will you try and track down next? Itís the thrill of the chase, always! Great watch.

    Lovely!

    Looks like the ba5tard child of a Cone and a Lobster... in a very good way.

    You are absolutely correct of course, this one has been on my want list for a while, I'm still looking.
