Ultra light

Sep 07, 2019,01:35 AM

Interesting to know what the rationale and decision making process at Omega was for the latest Aqua Terra pricing strategy. It is a cool piece but will be interesting to follow how it pans out. Non limited is smart as there will be less excess supply and information on production figures I suppose... 55 grams is light by modern standards so thought I’d take my 70 year old Omega to the scale... 40 grams including a rather thick and heavy leather strap! Now that is ultra light! Yes not a fair comparison but fun exercise nevertheless.

They sure knew how to make quality pieces in 1949... runs perfectly well even now:

to the notion of what is ultra light...


 By: keks : September 7th, 2019-04:34
choices.... perhaps the idea is to create a reference that only will be sold in very very limited numbers... one in each color perhaps... like a marketing ploy

Probably... [nt]

In my opinion. Nice watch!

I share that opinion...

have a great weekend!

Stellar condition! What's the reference number, keks? , , ,

. . . always a pleasure seeing a completely original vintage Omega ;-) . . .

it is a 2622-1 with trusted cal. 265 inside. Works like a charm!

That's an obscure reference! How obscure? . . .

. . . I don't believe I've ever run into one before. Case diameter? Art

Quite obscure then!

Mid-size! Hits the 'sweet spot' . . .

 By: Dr No : September 7th, 2019-12:07
. . . for everyone. Most of my vintage Omegas are on the smaller side - only the ref 2494 qualifies as a jumbo. Wearing a similarly sized slightly older variant at the moment . . . [ Ca '45 Ω ref 2179/4] . . . powered by a nickel-finish 30T2SC. Art ...  

Very nice!

Amazing movement as well! Wears great on your strap, looks superb!

Beautiful watch dear Keks

Would you mind sharing the brand or maker of the strap? Best. René

thank you

Many years ago I purchased this strap for another timepiece which is no longer in my collection, recently dug through my box and found it and even though it is 19mm squeezed it on here as I find it looks pretty cool on this Omega... The strap is a made by... 

Thank you very much! [nt]
