    I got my first Omega at 31. I bought the new model Seamaster. I wore 2 different models of the Movado Series 800 for about 10 years before that. I always thought Movado was THE watch to have since it was the most expensive watch at the mall in my area as a kid. I ended up buying four of them (one every year). I ended up selling two.

    There were no Omega dealers around me that I was aware of and I couldn’t afford a Rolex at the time. It wasn’t until I found this forum early last year that I discovered Omega and mechanical watches. Since then I’ve bought and flipped a Glycine Combat Sub, Christopher Ward, and two Tag Aquaracers before buying the Omega. I think I’ll hold onto it.

    I’ve never seen any Omega in public.

    Re: First Omega - what age and why did you get an omega?

    I was 30, coming towards the end of one of the longest years of my life. Marriage at its end and unwilling to acknowledge how bad my depression was impacting me.

    Decided that I wasn’t going to wait until 40 to get Bond SMP 2220.80... found an incredible deal on eBay (from a Canadian seller no less), and pulled the trigger. Can perhaps call it the start of finding/reclaiming my own identity again as a new chapter in life was on the horizon.

    So out of all my Omegas, my 2220.80 will never leave my collection.

    Re: First Omega - what age and why did you get an omega?

    I got my first Omega when I was 34. I picked up a lightly used Aqua Terra Master Coaxial locally for a great deal. It became a bit of a disruptor of my collection, pushing previous favorites out to the classifieds. It just hit nearly every want I had in a watch. I wear it 6 days a week and only grow more and more fond of it. And, as I write this, I have a SMPc on the way.

    My first (and only I've had to date) was a Planet Ocean Ref 2208.50 (XL 45.0 mm) I loved it, only sold it due to divorce. I got it when I did a cash out refinance on a house (which I lost the same week as the PO). I will own another Omega again but now I'm torn a Speedy , a Seamaster 300 or the Great White GMT

    I was 43 when I got my first Omega. I became a partner in a Consulting firm and we had a great year. Bought a second one not too long after.

    I'm 54 and I received this Speedy just before Christmas.

    My Wife retrieved it from a ZipLoc bag full of watches my FIL had stashed in a closet for the last 30 years. I took it to my local watch maker and had it serviced and regulated. He told me it was a 70 but everything I've researched points to it being a later in the year 69. It's in good shape regardless and I've got to say I really love it and I'm glad it's back in service after being locked away for the last three decades. There's a Swiss Dynasty Chrono I'm also trying to get my hands on from that notorious bag as well.
