Omega: Did Omega really used 904L for the Ploprof 600 ?

That's what i read on the Internet. I recently bought a PP 600 that was back from a full restoration from Bienne. Everything but the caliber was changed to new parts. Including the case. And I'm wondering if service cases are also in 904L.

Omega: if you want a 1200m, be quick

I heard recently from a couple of Omega boutiques in Paris that the titanium Ploprof is no longer produced. Either nobody wants it and it costs more than its revenue, or they're preparing for a replacement. I just hold once the steel and once the titanium 1200m models. As much as they are fun, it's

Omega: No se

Replacement date wheel doesn't appear on the parts list that have been changed. But it looks new to my eyes.

Automotive: Woosh

Isn't the woosh of the turbo a bit too much for everyday use ?

Omega: When large watches were the exception... this one stood out ! and still does :)

Got myself a new-ish watch. A completely overhauled Omega Ploprof 600 with everything new except its caliber 1002. A fantastic watch, with great comfort. It makes me wanting to try the 1200M in steel on mesh. Kudos for Omega to continue producing all these parts, 30 years-ish after its end of sale.

Omega: They messed up with the clasp.

But it's their best Seamaster so far

Officine Panerai: Live this 587 too

I had the 372 and now have this 587. The radiomir lack or the crown-guard is for better comfort. And i find it is well balanced along with this dial. Note also that the 587/662 lugs are wider than their luminor brothers, the 673/663.

Seiko: A fantastic watch, it is !

Bought recently the silk dial version and I love it. The quality is there, everywhere. And finally a screw down pusher I can use easily without removing the watch. What a pleasure to click that start stop pusher !
