    How do 5 digit subs have better resale than 6 digit? Resale in terms of price or increase in initial value? I would need a more information to agree or disagree. However, the resale on the 6 digit is higher but they are higher priced to begin with.

    I didnít say that the 2500 didnít keep good time. I just appreciate seeing the 8xxx series movements. They look and preform well. Plus I think itís an added benefit in omegas corner.

    Also, the 2500 powered POs donít sell for as high as the ceramics, similarly to that of sub. Again, ceramics have a higher msrp to begin with.

    Only the limited aluminum offerings from both companies have crazy resale prices because of the rarity. The liquid metal 2500 PO and say a 50th anniversary hulk.

    Itís safe to assume that the population agrees with my sentiment; ceramic is an advantage over aluminum. Itís scratch proof. Not to mention, you donít see omega going back to aluminum, they and the entire watch production community view them as better. Open your eyes, many companies are introducing ceramic as an advantage.

    Instead of jumping to conclusions, perhaps you should ask for clarification.

    I hate to think what that says about all of us if true.

    Pre ceramic subs are worth more than ceramic subs and are more desirable. The end.

    Firstly mate, liquid metal POís have a ceramic insert but like you said it because of their rarity not because they have a ceramic insert. Which is my point. The insert is a moot point.

    Current POís are too thick. The 2500 is perfect for sitting comfortably under a cuff. That is a fact. I do not have too see any movement in a watch. Thatís a wank. What do you mean you appreciate seeing it? Clear case backs? How come Rolex donít do it in their movements? They donít seem to care. Like I said itís a wank.

    And finally who cares if they donít use aluminium inserts anymore. The old stainless steel Pepsi Rolex GMT is one of the most desirable and valuable models there are with an aluminium insert. Itís all about rarity not ceramic inserts and clear case backs which has no practical function.

    Finally going back to the original topic. Omega is a great brand. I love mine but Rolex will always be superior. Iíd kill for a Rolex BLNR, a no date sub or Explorer and Iíd even take one with a ceramic bezel insert for the first 2 not that it matters if it hadnít one.

    I am telling you man- goats!
    All we need is goats (and an occasional Rolex sprinkled here and there- if the goats let us have it:)

    Dude, when I was a kid my grandpa had a bunch of goats (among other animals) in his farm.
    Have no clue what breed they were but they ran circles around all the other animals , including most of the dogs. Extremely clever animals.
    I would venture to say some of the goats are more clever then some of the humans I have dealt with
    That goat you posted - one fine, fine specimen !!!!! Exudes confidence, wisdom and sheer athleticism
    Know how some humans just ďcontrol the roomĒ when they make an entrance? Like a beautiful confident woman, or some say that Bond fellow is like that (donít know about him though...)
    Well, that goat you posted- she just seems to control the grazing ground ! Great goat dude!
