A new book on Omega Manual Chronometers (30T2SCRg, 30T2RG, 262,281 etc)

Good morning

as some of you know, I have an unhealthy passion for Omega 30T2 (30T2SCRg, 30T2Rg, 262, 281, etc). After years of collecting, I even wrote a short article which according to many is pleasant to read and informative:


Now I have just received what I consider the new Bible of this area. It is written by Erich Lexer (mac_omega on this and various forums), which is simply (apart from a friend) the only person I can refer to in this niche topic, more than Bienne, more than anyone else.

The book is called "Omega 30mm Chronometer", and is huge both physically and by its contents.

Obviously I was familiar with many topics, but for example I only  now have learnt of the existence of certain other chronometric references, of the exquisite details of versions for specific markets (even of the “FabSuisse” ones for the French market - which I thought I knew) , and many other small things of enormous interest for the enthusiast but also the merchant or the expert.

In short, I spent (and will pass) the next weekends with this book, and enjoy any moment of it.

Hello
Franco

PS: Just to clarify, I have no personal interest - I paid in whole for the book and I intend to consume it with the power of my eyes!

Contact the author to find out more, he is a member here as mac_omega








I've just placed an order for a copy . . .

. . . along with Bill and Kyle - all three will be shipped together.  I could've ordered separately, but now I have a reason to visit NYC ;-) . . .

Excellent news. Erich is top knowledgeable in this matter. I will order one for me as well. Thanks, Franco! And congrats to our friend Mac Omega for this book. [nt]

Direct PM to the author?

This is a lot lighter on the wallet than buying another watch!  Plus it's an area of horology I would love to learn about!  [My own justifications].

Yes, PM the author
