Omega CK 2393. Still haunting me.

Jan 08, 2021,23:36 PM
 

I tried to find a solution with the seller of this watch to get it, but it was too late... 


The CK 2393 represents all I like in a vintage chronograph: A superb dial with a lot of soul and charm, a nice case, sublime pushers and an historical movement, the ancestor of the Speedmaster Calibre. 





The only thing I would have preferred? A screw-in case back, rather than this snap back case...



But I can easily live with that. 

Hence the platinum rule: When you fall on a watch you love so much, jump! Or you will know the " you snooze, you loose " rule. wink 

Best,

Nicolas

Fully agreed about both...

...this sublime Omega and this golden rule which has a name... : experience 😉 But this rule has a reverse side : sometimes you pull the trigger too quickly for being first and... you regret it after a while for whatever reason. So taking the time to think... 

Well said, Mike. HAGWE

I also love that the ink on the dial is still pretty much distinct. Agree with the “snooze and loose” rule ! Too many to count Warmest regards

I've made both mistakes . . .

Snoozed and lost. And, bought impulsively followed by buyer's remorse. 🥺 Such is life and such is the nature of watch collecting. The key is to enjoy the journey, which I think forumners here do! That's a lovely Omega chronograph, by the way. M4

That watch dial is sublime. Enjoy the reflection about buying watches....

I am a very deliberate buyer — more experience with fountain pens — and I usually ask myself if I will be truly “sad” if I miss out on a purchase. Actually thinking through that right now with a vintage, but apparently NOS Cartier pen in Europe. It would ... 

A sublime vintage Omega chrono my dear Nicolas. What a dial! I regret so much you couldn´t catch it my dear friend. But I can well understand both what happened and your disappointment...

... as it had happened several times to me. The old rule "you snooze, you loose" is correct but sometimes even the most experience of collectors doubt and then... ouch! It´s gone! I hope Lady Luck will give you a new chance with a similar great Omega soon... 

Gracias, Abel!
