My new watch or.... ¿ Am I obsessed with Broad Arrows ?

Hello - hope this post is OK in this Omega forum as it is related with Omegas in any way as you will see in my last pics-

Months ago I saw a picture of a watch and fell immediately in love , as it was an unknown brand (at least for me , a Frey  plongeurs supercompressor) , I thought it would be very difficult to get one
luckily for me , last week I found one and it is

I am delighted , I like everything of it : the size , the nice divers grey strap , the hands , the color of the dial ( that changes a lot depending the light ) , the supercompressor type case with the two pushers
also has a fantastic pedigree : was bought new in 1962 in France by a professional diver , now retired who has been the only owner

A pleasure to share some pictures of them (and the rest of my Broad Arrow family smile ) with you
Thanks for looking and hope you like 

Welcome in the exciting world of Super Compressor Cases.

Longines, Droz, Bulova, Universal Genève, Vulcain, JLC, Hamilton, among others, made some delicious specimens. 

That one I didn't know.

Congratulations, my friend. 



Yes Amanico !! A whole new world !!! ( and very nice) [nt]

Very cool looking watch. Feels like an old ghost diver.

It does look like a cross between . . .

. . . a Longines and an Omega - well spotted, Nacho!

Very handsome specimen, and yes, I'm partial . . . 

. . . to grey, too, which is more difficult to find in vintage Omegas than you might expect.  I believe Abel has one . . . perhaps he'll find this thread and share his lovely specimen.



Thanks , glad you like [nt]
