Thanks, Justin! Minored in history at college; little . . .
. . . did I know then that history would form a major part of my collection.

Stunning collection ...
Wow Art, that’s a great Omega collection. If you had to pick just one, which one would it be ?
The Seamaster DeLuxe has . . .
. . . such an improbable background story it has to be the one that would be saved from a sinking ship. Otherwise, they're all keepers. Even the Seamaster chronometer that was listed for a year on CM is back in my good graces now that it's got an even ear...
Wow,what a collection !!
This is one of the most awesome vintage Omega collections I have ever seen. Many thanks for sharing these watches with us.
Sixteen years in the making! . . .
. . . the first to enter my collection is gone, as are several others sold or gifted away, but for every departure there are six arrivals. Accumulatively, Art
A modern Connie's . . .
. . . always a possibility. Had my eye on one last year, and would find it difficult to resist a current version of Black Connie, with rose gold furniture over a black Florentine dial. Art
There's at least one significant MIA, . . .
. . . a cal 30T 1 . And I still want a ref 2410 chronometer and manual winding Rail, vintage or modern production should Omega see fit to make one again. As our first Omega forum moderator, Bill Sohne, would say: "Good hunting". ;-)
My pleasure entirely . . .
. . . and I hope to see other SOTC threads soon, especially HSTE's - his Speedmaster collection is tops!
If i want a vintage Omega, i know who i can ask for the best advice ever.

Lovely, lovely Omega collection. Many of them with a great story behind them. I geel humbled to share one piece with you: The 1894. Not the Japan model like yours, that I would also love to know, additionally! ...
None other . . .
. . . than Ed White! I was leaning towards Sedna . . . . . . but ended up choosing Practicality over Beauty. 😌 ...
Awesome collection Art.
A very nice bunch of vintage old relics! Perfect for a vintage old relic such as yourself! HA! A couple of them I had forgotten you had. Keep up the good work. Kev
I like to pair watches; for example, getting the 3635 to match up with the 3697, or . . .
. . . the 2518 to match up with the 2989. The two 2852 Connies, Black and White, match up, as do the black Seamasters, 2846 and 14701. Obviously, one can go overboard with this fetish, too, like accumulating four 2364s. But yes, Ed was acquired partly to ...
Great collection, wear them all in great health!
My fav would be the ['94 1894 Homage / cal 269] and the ['58 ref 2852 / cal 505]. I would not know where to go if any of these stopped working. Do you service these yourself or do you "know a guy"...?
Actually, two guys, both . . .
. . . excellent watchmakers. And you've hit on a critical point: collecting vintage is impossible without the services of a talented watchmaker. Those guys make it possible. Art
