    That looks like it would be one of your ‘incoming-outgoing’ specials



    ..... and no doubt you’ll make a profit on it too!

    I have so much regret now selling a sub, gmt, even a datejust to have bought breitling or omega watches.
    Had I kept my sub and gmt, the going rate for these would have been an ROI 4 times over.

    I sold my BLNR a couple years back for $7,950.

    Just had a look at Sjöö Sandstrom watches on the Bay. This crazy Chronolink Worldtimer popped up. A new take on Ana-digital!

    And if you get a matte black leather strap that matches the matte black dial and it features tan stitching that matches the tan lume on the 3 and 9 positions, it makes all the boys wild.
    It’s bad ass man. Even though it’s a little small for my taste, I could see myself getting used to that one. Might have to be my first Rolex. Between that one and Scott’s modified sub both are top notch.

    The last two I did make a few bucks very true but the original intent was to keep but was disappointed on both count.
    The seiko sucked imho just nothing special at all
    The zodiac watch head was nice but not so much the bracelet and too big for my wife

    Now the problem I am having these days is that I am attracted to many watches .problem is would I keep any but at the same time part of the fun for me is to change things up a a it
    The all black ceramic PO in 39, the ceramic Longines but too big, the new Iwc ceramic chrono, zenith defy, lauréats GP, the B&R chrono, Archimede ...

    Re: Opinions on Omega

    Time for a history lesson guys. Like “real” watch talk for a minute.
    No date subs. What variations are there? Case sizes or dimension changes. Sapphire from acrylic. Dial changes. Bezels. Seems like a lot of subtle changes thru the years. Anybody got a breakdown of these changes?
