Tom, you may have outdone yourself this time around with your Omega Anniversary
Speedmaster here !
Not only is this one of the NICEST watches, but it's the kind of watch
that stands as a signature piece in a collection. It will fit PERFECTLY into your collection sir.
Yowza !!! Just might run out of adjectives to describe this one with !
Also have to add
that your review was so thorough, and detailed that it's hard to believe. One thing is for certain.
THIS is one of those watches that reaches an EPIC level imho. It has everything that makes
people who love this hobby happy. The name on the dial, the quality, the design, as well as
the cool limited edition, AND vintage factor ALL bring this watch to a very different level. The
first thing that you mentioned that really was surprising ws how you were the only bidder.
That is REALLY something, but it looks like that turned out to be a good thing, because I can
imagine what it would have been like if more people had known about it, and been bidding also.
In any case, congratulations on picking up this epic piece. Truthfully can't recall seeing other
watch cases that look like this special Omega here Tom. Like you are saying, it is a tonneau,
but it has an entirely different feel, or persona to it. Guess it's just the Omega style added in
or something, but this is IMPECCABLE right here !!!
The area around the case is so beautiful
with it's shape, and the brushing is again on such a high level that it's hard to pull your eyes away.
You could end up staring at the shapes, as well as brushing, and then forget about the time
completely. Even when you discover how the sides of the case are done, you are in awe. The
various angles of the watch set this watch off, and manage to stop you in your tracks at every
corner. Whether it's a view from the top, or the sides, this watch is simply BREATHTAKING !
To me it would be a centerpiece type of watch, and I think it is. Must be something very very
special to see this watch with ALL of your other unforgettable watches.
Just the whole style,
along with brand name, and limited edition factor must take this one near, or at the top. Truthfully,
just can't say enough about a watch like this. Every aspect surpises with it's own special personality,
or feel, that all comes together in such an enjoyable way. I mean the case alone is the ULTIMATE
vintage masterpiece by itself. However, how about the dial sir ?! It also has some of the most
unforgettable traits. The tachymetre section, and how it's raised above the dial is one part. Just
the manner it which it is separated, and is also that classy black, contrasting with the gray dial is
exquisite I think. Speaking of that gray dial. It REALLY compliments the entire case finish, as well
as the bracelet. Even the four separate hands that you mentioned seem to become more beautiful
against this dial. Same thing goes for the various sub-dials, and how they add even more exhilaration
to the watch. The hands, the sub-dials, the tachymetre, and even writing on the dial is done with
such care, and respect, it's unbelievable. Actually, it's hard to imagine a watch being ANY better
than this vintage Omega Tom.
It's the ULTIMATE watch ! Even the case-back is breathtaking,
with it's distinctive logo, and of course workmanship. That bracelet is unlike any other bracelet as
well, with it's large brick-like links, and exceptional craftsmanship. Honestly, it's this craftsmanship
that seems to take this watch to such a high level. The Grand finale of all of it, might just be
the movement. Each detail, each decoration, and piece of it is BREATHTAKING, which is one of
the themes of this ULTIMATE watch sir. Congratulations on winning such an outstanding watch,
and I really hope you enjoy it for many many years to come.
Breathtaking watch, photos, and REVIEW !
