So I dont post very often since most of you guys far surpass me in both collection and WISdom but I felt I should share this.
So I work at a high end steak house and tonight I waited on a gentleman who happened to be wearing an omega planet ocean (45mm orange bezel). When I commented on his great watch he said "thank you" and explained that he had thought it was cool when seeing it in an ad and his wife had gone out and bought it for him.
I asked him if he would like to know what makes his piece special (aside from the fact that his wondeful wife had bought it for him). I then told him a bit about the history of the co-axial movement and how both omega and the planet ocean are pioneers of sorts.
This gentleman looked at his watch after I explained this as if he had never seen it before. I could tell that he really felt like he wasnt wearing just a watch anymore but something truly special. I may not be fortunate enough to own a piece like that, but the happiness I saw on that mans face made all of this WIS craziness worth it.
