Horological Meandering: Back in the early '80s, I was visiting the Bay Area . . .

. . . when a local rock station, KSFX, held a celebration of the Stones on Easter weekend aptly titled Roll Away the Stone with the Rolling Stones . The celebration was a broadcast of every officially released Stones track in alphabetical order. As they were midway thru the first day, a contest was

Omega: Abel and I have both posted about it . . .

. . . in the recent past, Nicolas. I've forgotten how to add links to a post, but if you search for ref 2494 , our threads should pop up near the top of the page. Briefly, 2494 was a jumbo Seamaster reference that was issued in both chronometer and unrated versions. Most chronometer rated 2494's are

Omega: A little mood music . . .
