Omega has been on my grail list even before I turned into a WIS. I started this obsession last year, and I've been building a collection, starting with more affordable options. After adding a Sinn and a Breitling, I've come to appreciate the higher level fit and finish of higher end brands. My father is 88 and wears the 1953 Omega Seamaster he bought new when stationed in France in the Air Force. He wore it daily for probably 50 years before he retired it. He just can't stomach the servicing costs (even though he's well able to afford it). A regular service today is practically the same price (not adjusted for inflation) as what he paid for the watch at the Base Exchange in 1953. All that to say it's inspired me to buy a Seamaster Planet Ocean. I'm likely to get the 43.5 mm blue dial non-chrono on bracelet, but will settle for a black dial if my AD doesn't have a blue one in stock.
