    My two Omegas

    I used my Olympus OM-1 with an Extesion tube with my Zuiko 50/1.4 lens with some Agfa APX 400 film to capture these two.



    My early '50s Seamaster bumperwind.



    My Seamaster Deville from the mid 1960's with an aftermarket black shiny Croc' strap with an EOT deployment. After my Fortis Cosmonaut, this is my other "regular" wear watch when I am not out skiing, hiking, cycling, working out or experiencing the harsh rigours of everyday living.

    Nice crisp classic designs! Of course, movement pictures are always appreciated

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Thanks for posting. Personally I feel that these 50s and 60s Omegas are about as good as it gets for vintage collecting. Nice to see you are giving them care and regular wear.

    I'm not going there, I think everyone has seen what a bumper movement looks like at one point or another. I leave case openings for watchmakers when they do the servicing.
