This is my first post on the forum.
I have always loved watches put never been a position to afford something other than my Rotary Elite and other simple but nice watches. My Dad has some great watches and have always loved them.
My fiance has said that as an enagement/wedding gift she would buy me a watch! I therfore have been looking on ebay as well as going into stores and after trying on Oris, Tag, Hamilton they just didnt feel special enough!? I tried on an Omega and it was the first time I thought yes this is for me just felt quality! I tried the SMP quarts but although a stunning watch i just loved the Aqua terra look more, just a bit more formal but still a good daily watch. Unfortuantely the Automatic is way out of our budget! So back to ebay and racking my head around what to get and look at second hand!
With great delight my fiance went out the other day and came back totally out the blue with a brand spanking new Omega Aqua Terra Quartz, her reason 'she wants me to have it for the rest of my life and wanted it only to have been on my wrist' and she didn't want me to have a second hand watch. Yes very sweet hand me the tissues! I didnt realise you could get an AT in Quartz. The watch is stunning and I love it! However I have been on line and not seen much love or generally much talk about the quartz AT version, which to be honest burst my bubble a bit! Just wondering if anybody else has any thoughts on the watch (really cant be bothered with another Quartz vs Auto debate! I am fully aware that it is a LOT to spend on a Quartz watch and you can get Autos for less) One day I hope to obtain an Auto and develop a collection.
I have also posted a photo! I think I just need some re asurance that this is still the great watch I think it is!
