A nice looking watch with history, that's the big charm and interest of these vintage watches.

Another one I missed, but it was not the right time for me, alas. 

Best,

A lovely example. Prices are creeping up for this one. 5 years ago you could find one for very good money. I wonder now more than ever if the future is in vintage?

I paid 3000 Euros for mine in 2006. And it was a pristine specimen! Alas stolen...

Oh no. That is tragic. We’re you mugged?

Well, it's been 10 years ago. The following weeks were not easy. But life goes on.

They hat it in their regular lineup in the early 2000s, but since the book "a man and his watch", where the story of this piece is told, this piece gets a lot appreciation again.

Yes, and this interest has some impact on the prices, alas.

Somehow I agree with you. I always preferred the Seamaster 300 straight and lyre lugs.

200% agree

Agreed, too.

The most arresting Omega dial design after the Speedmaster . . .

. . . and maybe the Flightmaster.

Unfortunately the opportunity to get one at reasonable cost has long gone by . . . prices started appreciating about six years ago and haven't let up since.  I found one locally (in worse condition, I might add) seven years ago for < $2K.  Didn't pull the trigger, of course . . . another opportunity down the drain.


Yes, my friend. The train has gone, now...

So similar and still so different...

Richard

Agreed. You still miss this one!

Which share the same case than the CK 2913 ( Huguenin Frères ).



You're right Nicholas! ...

 
 By: 198042 : January 22nd, 2021-23:29
that was never on my radar, don't know why I missed it. I will need your guidance in getting one though. Whenever / if ever we are back to normal and face to face meetings will be possible again...
Cheers from Zurich

When, not if. ;)
