Shall we have a CK 859 Roll Call?

 
 By: Mach : June 5th, 2022-16:41
Not only would it be interesting to see how many of us are fortunate to possess this beauty, but this may also help persuade or push other members โ€œover the edge.โ€ Iโ€™m thinking Art (Dr No) and Tony (aperna) in particular. I can sense they are almost there...  

there you go....

Wow, this is really nice

Congrats to all!

Can anyone

Confirm the case thickness on this one, including crystal?

11.7mm

 
 By: Mach : June 5th, 2022-17:22
Lug-to-lug length is 46mm. ...  

Thank you sir!

Just an experiment :)

Thanks! It has become one of my favorite as well!

I was hanging out with my buddy Marc yesterday . . .

 
 By: Dr No : June 5th, 2022-18:55
. . . and he's tried on a CK at an AD. I'll get there eventually, Mach. And for the sake of my wallet I hope I'm not pushed over the edge. Thanks for calling the roll! There should be at least a dozen replies in all. Best, Art

You're doing a helluva good job, Mach! . . .

 
 By: Dr No : June 5th, 2022-19:08
. . . although in all honesty it would be difficult to add any watch this year after my recent acquisitions. Next year would be more feasible. A modern manual winding Omega is on my essentials list but I can hold out for another homage, like a Ranchero or... 

My pleasure dear Mark.

Thank you for participating, S F! With a dozen NWAs, . . .

It's striking to see just how popular and clubbable this great watch has become in such a short time. Will Omega learn? Ease up on marketing and rapid-fire hash-rehash, dip into its vast store of historical references, and people will respond warmly.

 
 By: Age_of_Surfaces : June 9th, 2022-14:23
It certainly helps too that this is a regular production watch, which is again demonstration that you don't need to slap an LE label on a watch for it to turn a trick in the market. In the end, its presence on my feeds helped me go a different way. So I d... 

Agree 100%! I saw the blue dial Speedmaster โ€˜57 a couple of weeks ago . . .

 
 By: Mach : June 9th, 2022-18:45
But, I really want to see the black sandwich dial edition! ...  

Oops I might have replied to the wrong thread, because my initial observations were about the CK sector dial that's quickly become popular.

 
 By: Age_of_Surfaces : June 9th, 2022-20:05
On re-reading though my post wasn't a complete disaster, but I apologise for the snafu. The sandwich dial 57 is on the way and I'll put it up here when it arrives. Best regards.

Hello Mach!! Regret to say I canยด t participate... still! As I am still patiently waiting for mine to arrive to my Country. Threads like this one only add more fuel to the fire of my anxiety!! Lol!

 
 By: Subexplorer : June 9th, 2022-20:20
So many wonderful pictures of a superb offering by Omega! I hope to post mine soon as I filled my order very early as soon as the watch was shown in the media. Keep enjoying and loving your watches dear friends! Cheers! Abel

About time! ;)))

Mine has just arrived at the AD and I will have it Tuesday! Pics forthcoming...

 
 By: analog_sheen : June 17th, 2022-22:08
Not a speedy of course, but Tuesday is a fine day to pick up the CK859 as well!

Maybe a bit late.. But still in time, I trust..

Got the AD call last week; thus checking in CK 859.. Have to say, really love it !! A cute & friendly sector dial face.. Not bad, the Verso side.. Real pleasure already to wear it ! HAGWE & Best to all, hs. ...  

A few weeks late, h - my apologies! . . .
