    Waiting on Paradive order is driving me bonkers

    I have many watches. But I can't recall ever be so anxious for something to come. I'm 53, but I'm feeling like I'm 5 the day before Christmas and all the wonders the next day would hold. Do I need to see a counselor or are there others getting antsy?

    Heck, I waited two years for a Kingston and yes, we all probably need to see a counselor. On the other hand, sometimes I look at my son (who just turned 6) and think that it wouldn't be too bad to feel like a kid again. Enjoy the wait, and the watch! Congrats on the Paradive. I'm wearing an old Blackwater today and can tell you that Bill's watches are worth waiting for.

    I’m with you sir! I can’t wait for this paradive to arrive at my doorstep! I’m also still awaiting Project 300 and the new Stingray and Sea Fighter.

    I'm excited about getting the RTW Paradive on my wrist, but I'm really not that bothered by the wait. Waited more than two years for a Key West (worth every second of the wait), two for an OWC Snowflake (well worth the wait as well), and almost two years for a Dagaz Typhoon T-II. I also scoured sales boards for two years before I landed a Kingston and a LRRP UTC and it was four years before I sourced and bought a LRRP Milsub (which I traded almost immediately - no knock against the watch; I just had something else grab my attention. Mixed feelings about that one two years on...).

    The day-counter for my Project 300 wait shows 2,769 - this Monday, it will be exactly 7 years and 7 months.

    Am I happy about this wait? Absolutely not.
    Does it bother me? Not really.

    With that said, my wife has been waiting on her P300 GO for a year and 5 months already - fearing that one will be here too late, I got her the closest thing to the original (WatchCo built):

    Before anyone wonders, no, that's not her wrist


    PS - to stay on topic, we're also both waiting on the RTW-ParaDive and no, the wait is not driving u bonkers.

    I will try to hold it together...Wise Master 225
    Is that an omega or a custom? I had jack Alexyon at IWW customize a rare Seiko 4205 midsize diver for my wife, who is small. He restored it and bead blast it and we but that on a shark mesh also. Turned out nice.
    I have the shark mesh a few of my vintage divers, I love that look. I hate sizing it, but it's a great fit. Doesn't pull the hair on my arms.

    AboutTimeCo in Auckland, NZ, formerly known as WatchCo in Australia, builds SM300 watches using NOS parts and refurbished movements. Essentially 100% original Omega, but has never left Bienne (and lack an Omega serial number). The picture shows it on an original Omega mesh that I normally use on my Speedmaster - I was checking the fit and the look (explains why my wife's watch adorns my wrist)

    Beautiful. What a classic design. I would wear it to test "fit & the look" for a year or two. If it is for the wife, you can't be too careful.
