    Watch brand which doesn't click with me - Omega.

    I try my best to get to like & get into this brand but somehow it just doesn't click with me...
    I find most of their design are very basic.



    The only notable one that are of interest to me are the moonwatch & the planet ocean range. ( lol get it, planet n moon? )

    I have a friend who doesn’t like Omega and I know plenty of people who don’t like Rolex. Everyone is different. I too am not attracted to several very popular watches I see on this forum. The GS would be an example.

    The Omega did not click with the astronauts when worn on the moon....crystal fell out on a surface walk. You may want to consider the Bulova Moonwatch (note Bulova can not call it that because of copyright of Moonwatch by Omega) but I can. It has the ultra 262 hz movement and it is a heck of a lot less expensive. Story here:

    Fortunately, there are something like 200+ brands to choose from.

    I'm not sure I understand the purpose of a thread like this, particular if there isn't a specific property or quality to talk about, like Rolex's cyclops, or Panerai's crown guard, and why they aren't favored and what other brands one might consider that are similar but do not have those qualities. Otherwise it just devolves quickly into a bash "brand X" thread.

    There are a lot of brands that don't click with me.

    Within any given brand are a bunch of watches that don't click with me even if there may be one or two that do.

    Such is life.

    Care to tell us what else you don't like?

    "Watch brand which doesn't click with me - Omega"

    Perhaps that's the OP's goal...
