    An unexpected arrival!

    My wife and I were at the Jewellers this afternoon looking at tennis bracelets for her, on the occasion of our upcoming wedding anniversary. We managed to find one that she liked, and I wandered over to the watches... Well, this Jeweller is also an Omega AD that I've had a nice relationship with and, after a little negotiation, my wife insisted that I should have this as a memento of our years together:



















    I've been a fan of this watch for several years, and I'm really looking forward to enjoying it for many years to come. The fact that it represents our relationship makes it more special. Thanks Honey!

    Thanks for looking,
    Wallace

    Wow, what a great gift! That's a beauty. I think I like it more than explorer 2. Congrats!

    Thanks for the compliments! The Exp II is a great watch and one of Rolex's best looking, IMHO. I've always admired that model, but I just can't bring myself to spend the kind of money that Rolex wants for one. This Omega is a great substitute and at a much more comfortable price.

    wow. that is certainly one of my favourite omegas man. if there is a watch i regret not owning, it's that one.
    your white dial chronoscope has some serious competition now.

    i saw the watch and neglected to read your thread:oops: but i came back to glean it over again. i sincerely have only the best wishes and highest regard for you and your wonderful family wallace~enjoy the watch and treasure your family mate.
