    Well, I like theater , going to the Opera for me depends on the music being preformed and the languages being sung.
    I do like the OPERA watch as well.

    That's a great dial. What's the word under Grand Luxe - is it TIMEMASTER?

    Shiny! The case looks slightly 50's, but the dial and hands seem a bit later then that. The name "Opera" was registered in the U.S. to "Manheimer Watch Company, Chicago Il", in 1931. That seems early for this watch, but that company (or its predecessor, "Manheimer, Louis & Bros") had already been around since 1896, so they certainly weren't a fly-by-night operation, and they were around in 1939 when they filed for the "Hampden" trademark (the original Hampden having been sold and moved to a Russian company in 1930).

    The watch looks nice but Regular Opera is not a favorite .I do like listening to Operetta such as Just about anything by Gilbert and Sullivan.
