    Vintage Omega Sweetness

    27.5m serial 1968-69-ish Connie C shape. Just picked it up last week. It was in generally good shape but a bit of polywatch and some scrubbing got it to sing. I need some more vintage Omega in the collection. Joins a brother 26.5m serial Speedmaster in the collection. Sorry for the link instead of pic but when i tried to uplaod the pic i kept getting error messages.

    Ooooh, a knurled bezel "C" case 751! Sweet watch.

    I need some more vintage Omega in the collection.
    Funny, I was just thinking I have too many.

    .....then the feeling passed and I wondered how that stray idea snuck into my brain.

    751 Connie; can't go wrong. Though some find the C case a little small, it is one of the best things on springs. Trouble is that there is no way up from there! I love my Connie so much that I wear a JLC as a beater!

    Beautiful Connie. I love the watches from that era.
