    Re: Opinions on Omega

    Omega makes it kind of easy to collect vintage watches. They have a great archive on their website, and for a relatively small fee they will also send you documentation of when a watch was produced and where the watch was sent from the factory.

    First rule in buying vintage is questioning everything the seller says. Second is Google is your best friend. Finally sometimes you take calculated risks. The Conny is an example. I bought it December and the movement was in sh1tty shape (signs of rust) - the axel holding the balance had rusted and was in two pieces. But my local watch guy was able to repair it. It’s now extremely accurate. It’s a keeper.

    I like modern movements, but I find that there’s something special with the size and quality of the older ones. I often wonder why watches today are so super sized.

    Same here. The quantity of super-sized modern watches is such that my first impression of Nomos was, "It feels cheap," because it was so much smaller and lighter than most other watches I've seen lately — and the one I had tried was their Zurich world timer, which is one of their larger models.

    Around a year later, after mostly alternating between my AW and my ~9mm Rado, I went back to the Nomos dealer and changed my mind, deciding how nice it was to wear a watch that didn't feel like a lump of metal. It's almost a lost art, making smaller and thinner movements at a reasonable price.

    If I was looking for a nice dress alt everyday watch I would definitely look at Nomos. Really like the size and simplicity of many of there pieces.
