Size:  3.25 MBMy father gave me his early 60’s Omega when he bought a Rolex Datejust in 1967. I was 17 yrs old then. My wife bought me my second Omega in 1977. And last year I bought myself my third Omega, a beautiful Seamaster Diver 300M.

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

    36 years old.
    Had a small salary increase and always wanted a proper Swiss watch from a renowned company.
    It was basically between a mid-range Omega or a bottom-range Rolex in budget.
    Not only were the cheap Rolexes ugly as sin, not only would people think I was getting a fake anyway, but I remembered the Aqua Terra and realised it's the most beautiful, every day watch ever made .. and if I went with a slightly older variant, on Quartz, I could actually afford it

    I recieved my first Omega a 1948 model from my late Great Uncle aged mid 20's. I then treated myself to a birthday present at 40 years old to a new Seamaster Bond full size auto.
    I still own the 1948 model & now a Speedmaster.
    Rolex Sub C
    Tudor BB GMT
    Omega Speedmaster Pro
    Tag Aquaracer 500m
    Seiko Kinetic Diver

    My first was a SMP QUARTZ. It was a relative inexpensive way of getting a popular Omega design for a lower price. Plus, as our wealth increases and we start going automatic, the quartz makes a great everyday go to each.

    I wanted a watch to celebrate my daughters birthday but my wife said no. Few years later I tuned 40 and got an even better one
