    What next in the thread? Comments from Goat Admirers Weekly? North Korean peace and friendship association AGM?
    Hang on a minute, bub...

    There’s a Goat Admirers Weekly?

    I gotta go search now. Can’t believe I’ve been satisfied with Goat Lovers Quarterly for this long.

    It is an amazing timepiece.

    Can your Rolex do that ?
    Since you asked, I would be happy to share my experiences.

    Mine the last 5 or so years have ran as follows:

    PO +3.5 s/d
    PO +5.5 s/d
    PO +3 s/d
    AT +4 s/d
    AT +4 s/d
    Seamaster Pro +3 s/d

    Sub +1 s/d
    Sub Zero to +.5 s/d (depended on face up or down at night)
    Sub Date +1 s/d
    Sub5513 +2 s/d
    GMT +1 s/d
    SubC +1 s/d
    SubC Date Zero to +.5 s/d

    For the record, the longest stretch I had spanned 3 mos straight with a 2012 SubC Date and it was still even after having ran over 90 days. No time lost or gained; only broke the streak back then to set the date.

    Just picked up another of either a PO or Sub and is running +1 s/d, and I will give one guess which it is. * Hint rhymes with Dub!

    Opinions on Omega

    I own both. I have two Omegas and three Rolex's. I got the Omegas when that was all I could afford. I got the Rolex's when my means increased.

    I think they're both great. Each has its pro's and cons. I think they both exhibit beauty and grace in their own ways. Rolex had a raw simplicity with accents that make the watch pop. Omegas are designed to pop all over, and they do. The lume in my Seamaster is better than every single other watch I own. It's simply amazing. But the lume on my Sub is mesmerizing.

    To delve into "the people": I honestly don't judge (most) based off what they wear. I have made a few observations.

    Differences: Omega owners seem content and happy with owning Omega product. Usually it's history-related passion or simply the Bond connection. They don't usually take their watch life too terribly seriously. Some of them do like to jump around on forums and throw "Omega" into the mix randomly. Rolex owners like to use their brand as a "mic drop" and there is a higher likely hood of running into the occasional owner who wants to throw his weight around. I think we've witnessed plenty of that in this thread.

    Similarities: both are very passionate about their respective brand. Both revel in the history of their particular model.

    Sadly, I really think Rolex strove to get away from the tool watch market and really drive the celebrity connection. They aimed for the yacht club, old money and that's where they landed. If that was their intentional choice, then I'm happy for their success.

    Omega seems to have filled the gap that Rolex left void when they moved up to the ivy-educated league. Which is okay. They hinged on their NASA connection and English "subtle influence" and are just fine with hanging out there. That's cool too.

    Anyway, can we all just agree that we love our watches? I mean, that's why we bought them. This is really divulging into an argument that I think is ridiculous. I don't live in a board room, therefore, I don't care what they wear or what they think.

    But more importantly, I think this has really dwelled into an important topic, we as a society, have forgotten how to disagree. Rather than shutting up, listening up and then pondering the other fellows argument and then debating from a stance of understanding, almost sympathy if you will - everyone wants to get offended and start measuring body parts. Well, no thanks. I'm happy with mine and so is my Significant Other. That's all that matters to me.

    -one thing I forgot: what REALLY convinced me to get a Rolex was a significant event. I talked with lots of watch people. With different opinions on Rolex. And despite what they thought about whichever brand, the people who worked and lived in the industry, watch makers, watch repairers, appraisers, sellers, scientists, all wore a Rolex. Even though some of those very people hated the brand stigma. When asked why they all answered the same thing - because they are as good as they say. And they are worth every penny because they will always work.

    Thanks for posting this. I have been saying this to my kids and friends for awhile now. Honest and intelligent discourse is becoming a lost method

    sportura still spouting his nonsense?

    This guys posts are unreal. Either:

    A. He's a troll, and a sad human being, and needs to find a life.

    B. He's actually for real, and an even sadder human being.

    Opinions on Omega

    Love my Omega but still think that Rolex is the superior overall brand.

    In saying that I saw an Aqua Terra the other day at the Omega Boutique in Sydney and it blew me away.

    Ahhhheeeemmmmmm

    Actually there IS NO BOND CONNECTION.

    Omega paid the producers to put it in the recent movies. That's all.

    1. Fleming, who wrote the Bond books, wore a Rolex Explorer.

    2. In the books, Bond wore a Rolex.

    3. In all the movies where commercial product placement did not occur, Bond wore a Rolex.

    I cant say it more forcefully - or maybe I can.

    THERE IS NO BOND CONNECTION.

    Then again, the connection between Bond and Rolex in the books seems a little tainted when you learn that Fleming started writing ever more boldly about Rolex once their marketing department took notice.
