Omega: Pretty sure your heirloom Omega hails from the first half . . .

Omega: Believe it or not, I had the very first FOIS - as in serial #1 - on my wrist . . .

. . . nine years ago. It had just been introduced. Our alphabet soup gang had scheduled a visit to the Omega boutique in Beverly Hills to see the novelties, and they had #1 to show us. Mitch tried to buy it, but they told us it was not for sale. In fact, if memory serves correct, the phrase 'Not For
