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

    Got my first Omega at 42, just a month ago. My dad wore a constellation regularly most of my childhood. I was able to wear it on occasion too. When my dad passed a few years ago my stepmother cleared out everything including multiple watches that I would have paid her to keep.... Set my mind to adding an Omega to my small but growing collection then. Decided that the new Seamaster was more my style if I was paying (not in a suit very often for work), but think of him everyday that I put it on. Would still love to have his old Omega and his Cartier though.

    I was 42.... so about 4 months ago, lol. This is actually my second "luxury" watch (sure there are watches in the 10s and 100s of thousands $$) but never spent more than 30 bucks on a watch. But my Omega Planet Ocean 45.5XL is such a joy to wear and great for networking with fellow business people.

    Absolutely love the accuracy of time it keeps, the ability to dress it up or down with several different straps.

    Got my first Omega When I was 23, a PO 8500. A month later I got a standard speedy. Then a SMP and AT 2 months after. I got sucked in pretty fast. I ended up trading and selling. Went through 4 Speedy Pros. Now I just have a SD4K and a white DJ.

    My first luxury watch was at age 26 -- the Skyfall AT 38.5mm Co-axial. I started to lead my own team at work, hitting the gym consistently with results, and I was also in the midst of overhauling the wardrobe.

    I think I was 39, it has been a while, I was fed up with replacing straps and batteries on the watch my wife had gifted me a good time before to replace my Seiko Chronograph (gift from parents and the one Roger Moore wore as James Bond). I wanted a watch with a good bracelet and had noticed the Omega in Goldeneye so after a lot of saving and soul searching (and persuading myself I spent plenty on my kids and the mortgage) I purchased the mid-size SMP 300. A short time on WUS and that was sold (the only one so far) and replaced with my Bond GMT ....

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

    I quit smoking in April 2009 (40 a day man) and decided I would buy a "nice" watch with some of the money I put aside each day. My father, grand father and uncle all wore Omega watches so I started looking into them. By December I had saved £1100 and stumbled on this forum.

    A little more research and I decided on a 2254.50 I bought it on eBay from a Japanese seller and it arrived 5 days later. I've been on here ever since and spent far too much money in the process!! Oh and I'm still smoke free!
