    My "new" Omega

    It has just arrived and looks like an ugly duckling; not a perfect dial, ill-treated movement over the years, but still has a beautiful C case.
    I love it!

    Ugly duckling?!!! Wutthehell... That's a damn gorgeous piece, Bubba. If you find it ugly, you can always send it to me, so that it can be disposed of properly

    Well, this watch looks so nice with its patina, besides being an Omega, that I must assume that Bubba was just fishing for compliments, like the gorgeous blonde on the beach teasing the 'papagalli' (olive-oiled womanizers) by saying 'oh, I look so terrible in that undersized bikini' and provoking a storm of protest…
