    Shots of my Vintage Collection!

    This are the three vintages I have at the moment. Two more vintages, both Omega Seamasters are at Service. I hope you like them!










    This is one of the Seamasters.

    Nice set. I particularly like tuning fork Omega. But I would get the 'one size fits all' band off as soon as you can. These bracelets often leave gouge marks on the lugs.

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

    Thanks! As the watch is at Service at New Hampshire, I sent it without any bracelet. I'm searching for a NOS or slightly used Omega bracelet that goes with this one.

    Bracelets... the bane of collectors

    I replace most of the ill sized ill treated bracelets I get with straps.

    But some watches, like the Electroquartz, don't do well on straps. I found a NOS bracelet for one of my Omega Electroquartz ... it cost far more than I paid for the watch. But I paid it as they are so difficult to find, especially when you have 20+ cm wrists and need all the links.

    See for yourself:



    An attempt at a matching bracelet for a similarly cased Constellation ...



    And now the right bracelet!

    Indeed.

    Eeebs watch is specificaly designed with the bracelet as an integral
    part and in most cases anything other than the original looks odd.
    Mido's watch is of a more 'universal' design and so will except either
    bracelets or straps and still look good.
