Couldn’t resist snapping off a shot of my Omega De Ville alongside this striking glass sculpture from Scandinavia, featuring a human eye. The Omega, appropriately, is the “Hour Vision” model. 41mm steel, 8611 automatic movement, with a dial that seems inspired by semi conductor chip design

I have to eventually source one and from the looks of yours, I wouod also like one with the exceptional bracelet. Shame it does not get the love it deserves but something tells me that time will come 😉

That's simply lovely

what's revealed when you turn it over? ...  

The 8500 is a very reliable 'piece of kit'.
