    (Relatively) New Purchase - Omega AT 15000 Gauss

    Hey folks! Not sure if this type of post belongs in the main forum or Image forum, so feel free to move it if it's not appropriate here!

    But just wanted to share my new purchase (a little over a month ago) - the AquaTerra 15000 Gauss. I purchased from Topper's in Burlingame, CA (great store). I couldn't be happier with the watch. It keeps fantastic time (though I've not done a scientific test), and I actually love the bumblebee look. It "sports up" the AquaTerra look just a bit - the watch looks fantastic with everything from shorts and a polo to a suit (though I'd lean toward a dress watch in a truly formal situation).

    Aside from the movement, the thing that struck me the most upon seeing it, as compared to all my other watches (which have been quartzes of the sub-$1000 variety) is the sheer depth of the face, for lack of a better term. The sharp hands, the raised markers at 5-min increments, and the "teak" pattern of the face combine to create a very "3D" effect that is quite striking.

    Working in tech, the anti-magnetism will be nice, though of course not strictly necessary - just one less thing to worry about. Mainly I like the fact the watch is the first of its kind with this particular approach to anti-magnetism. As I understand it, Omega plan to eventually incorporate this tech into all of their watches, at which point the 15000 gauss branding will go away and it will simply be a feature of the movement. So, at worst, there's a uniqueness and story to the watch as "first of kind." At best, there's a slim chance it could become collectible down the line if the tech takes off.

    The bracelet is also pretty awesome -- the only con is the mirror finish seems to scratch very easily from my desk (you can see the scratches in the last photo). Hopefully these can buff out when I have it maintained, though they aren't at all noticeable unless you're really looking because they naturally tend to be at the bottom of the band where my wrist rests on the desk.

    Without further ado -- pics (apologies in advance for the darkness of the first two - the third is the best I think)!

    Love this watch. I got to play with one of the first ones awhile back. I wanted to replace my current AT8500 with it but I couldn't get over the lack of the date border on them. How's your accuracy?
