    FINALLY!!! A good find! Omega / Borel

    So I bumped into yet another Omega at an estate sale that was going to bring way more than it was worth....or at least full blown retail. So I sent a text to my wife...telling her hey, found another one. We both laughed and she said, "Someday dear...you will find one and steal it!!". Well who would have thought it was today! I actually went for the Borel (which I have been trying to find as well)

    Going to have to take the weekend off from looking....pretty sure I burned up all my luck on this one.

    both very clean...light wear from age...but running flawlessly and both have a ton of service marks inside the case backs.

    Thank you both. I'm still amazed. Must have just hit a sale with no watch people.

    Even a common street urchin would recognize the name Omega and snag it so you got lucky, you were at right place at the right time. You want to double your money, I pay shipping ?
