It shows some nice nods to seamasters from the 70s (indices) and the movement clearly classifies as having 'historical importance'! The platinum salmon combo is always tasty... but I always found the script on the dial quite clumsy

Although not a huge Omega fan this is a beautiful watch

To bad my bid wasn’t enough

Well, it is a milestone indeed, but what do you mean with „the same movement“?

They used the cal 2500 (ETA 2892 A2 base) as in every other Omega Aquaterra that has been released later on. It was Chronometer spec from the beginning but was improved over the coming years from version A up to version D.

I think I posted this here before. When these were first released in 1999, I bought two of them new -- one YG/silver dial and one RG/midnight blue dial (LE of 999 each). Several years later, I found a preowned PT/salmon dial (LE of 99, for the same price ...  

I assume those 4-digit numbers refer to a type of Patek. Another nice 4-digit number...

... that you'd probably like in all metals is "1815" -- as in Emil, Moonphase

(sigh) . . . you let go of the one . . .

. . . I'd want to have. 😣 At least they're finally coming into their own . . . these early co-axials had little traction among collectors until recently. Best, Art

It gets worse, Art...

When I bought these brand new back in 1999, I got the RG for such a good price that I bought two and immediately flipped one. That was my one and only pure flipping experience. I can get into vintage RG watches but not too many modern ones.
