Well, I didn't include the Omega . . .

. . . that has yet to be delivered.




It's paid for, just have to wait 'til my turn comes 'round.

Ha! The elusive Cal 321?

None other . . .

. . . than Ed White!  I was leaning towards Sedna . . .




. . . but ended up choosing Practicality over Beauty.

😌

Bravo! Here is one for you.

Vintage 105.002? Way more dineros than the new reissue! . . .

. . . and anyways, if I were going to pop for a perfect 'master, it would be a Rail, not a Speed.  I still want a PAF like yours.

105 003.

I was looking at the new Tresor manual movements on WatchAdvisor and if I’m not mistaken, it’s purpose built for a 40mm case..

 
 By: Echi : June 12th, 2021-01:37
Which led me to think.. i’m not sure they can plop that in on a 38mm RM which then made me think.. that RM60 won’t be getting updated anytime soon. Not unless there’s an existing manual caliber that fits a 38? The movement on those Tresors are quite nice. If I were back behind a desk, I’d probably get one.

No worries though. Having a quirky thing for an RM is already niche in itself. Why not elevate it into an anomaly and enjoy it with an automatic.. blasphemy if not for getting almost everything right smile

Congrats in advance!

Great collection πŸ‘πŸ‘

As a personal achievement, the Omega collection ranks just behind . . .

 
 By: Dr No : June 10th, 2021-21:36
. . . the forty Stones shows.

Impressed!

A phenomenal collection you have there.

 
 By: nasseriq : June 10th, 2021-21:24

Grazie, Nasser! I take that as a high compliment. Dad once said . . .

 
 By: Dr No : June 10th, 2021-21:39
. . .  "You're a phenomenon, son", but pretty sure that wasn't.

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

Well, I'm kinda like my Omegas: an old relic . . .

 
 By: Dr No : June 11th, 2021-17:24
. . . with original parts in good working order.

smile

Amazing collection, Art. I had no idea...πŸ‘

No message body

I'll bring the latest acquisitions to our next alphabet soup gang gathering . . .

 
 By: Dr No : June 11th, 2021-17:24
. . . in August. 

;-)

Awesome collection dear Art!! What a wonderful chance to view all your Omegas together in one post! I will be viewing again with great attention this week end to enjoy it better.

 
 By: Subexplorer : June 12th, 2021-01:24
I can well understand this collection can only be assembled through many years of research and hunting with much passion and patience.

Thank you so much for sharing with us!

Keep enjoying and loving this great collection so much my dear friend.

Best, Abel

Wow! You know what I’m thinking though.. that RM is so out of place. Hahaha! Hopefully your Ed White arrives so it can have a modern companion..

 
 By: Echi : June 12th, 2021-01:31
I love that β€˜94 cal 269.. note that i just copied the name to make it sound like i know vintage omega. I also like the rectangular one.. the pie pan β€˜58.. i mean, all of β€˜em smile

I like to pair watches; for example, getting the 3635 to match up with the 3697, or . . .

 
 By: Dr No : June 12th, 2021-16:13
. . . 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 give Rail company. 

"Man does not live by vintage alone."

Hehe i suppose we quite understand the fetish as you put it.. that ed white will really pair well with the RM. And to make that a modern trifecta, might as well shoot for a ploprof at some point :-)

Absolutely amazing. I like the ref 1894 homage and the rectangular 3697

 
 By: hoseachandra : June 12th, 2021-01:42
Thanks for sharing

Wearing the ref 3697 today . . .

 
 By: Dr No : June 14th, 2021-01:47
. . . because you mentioned it.




Best,

Art

A real candy!

 
 By: amanico : June 14th, 2021-06:16

Wonderful. A classic gentleman watch of bygone era

 
 By: hoseachandra : June 17th, 2021-08:51

Great collection, wear them all in great health!

 
 By: wover : June 13th, 2021-07:22
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 . . .

 
 By: Dr No : June 13th, 2021-13:05
. . . 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.

Very cool assortment of vintage beauties Art. So much history on all of those pieces πŸ‘

 
 By: holdemchamp1225 : June 14th, 2021-20:26

Thanks, Justin! Minored in history at college; little . . .

 
 By: Dr No : June 17th, 2021-16:13
. . .  did I know then that history would form a major part of my collection.
