I took it diving this summer for shits and giggles and it was awesome!
Heck - any excuse to post this up. Had it services a couple years ago. Got it around year 2000.

Dang that looks clean! Not a single scratch it seems. I fell of a motorcycle the other week and scraped the bracelet on mine quite good. Haha

Ugh. You're ok, though?
Yeah, the watch is generally like a concrete block. I wore it just about every day for more than 10 years and it still looked really good. Then I got it serviced and it's more of an occasional now (for the last few years). My daily is a VC Overseas now, which looks great too. Stainless Steel watches are like tanks. I've learned not to stress too much over scratches. Eventually, you just send it in with your first born and it comes back looking brand new. The good news is, that if you just keep having kids they'll except the eldest remaining as substitute "first born".

Yeah they are solid. Thinking of picking up a Sub sometime down the road (older model as I find the newer ones look too bulky/square).

Scraped part of the bracelet and my left arm but thankful nothing more serious. I didn't even trip. Chalked them up as battle scars.

I have the same watch - mine is a quartz movement that I picked up for travel when I don't want to wear my regular Omega, a 2296.80.00 Seamaster chrono in titanium, rose gold and tantalum.

PS - this is another of my Omegas and particularly suited to a German car site as they only sold them in Germany and Switzerland. They are generally called Teutonic Speedmasters, c. 861

Wow. Gorgeous. I see you have a "type". Small seconds, dauphine hands. Well, outside of that, there are a lot of differences too. The very classic top one and the very modern (for its time) lower one. Awesome. Thanks for sharing.

Share your Omega watches, ask questions and start discussion!!


Here is my first Omega:
Seamaster 300 "Spectre" Limited Edition. (limited to 7,007 pieces worldwide, only about 1000 came to the US)
It is my favorite Seamaster by far with both the NATO strap and stainless steel band. I'm used to having a date on my watch (my daily driver is still my Rolex GMT Master II), but I'll get used to it! I love the subtle elegance of the watch, and the build quality and movement are wonderful.

Also for anyone in the West LA/Beverly Hills area, the service at the Omega Boutique at the Beverly Center was first class! They didn't discount the watch, but I did receive a free bottle of Bollinger Champagne, a leather carrying case for the watch, a beautiful leather notebook portfolio/small laptop/ipad carrying case, a coffeetable book describing the history of Omega and more!

Here are a few photos! Share yours!




i want the watch box =)

Anyone have any pointers for someone (myself) who's looking for a used Speedmaster pro, 38mm? I see the prices range from 1k to 3k, but cannot tell which are fakes or not. What's a good price for these as well?

I would start looking at the watchuseek website. They have a very good sale section and most of the sellers are reputable, regular members/dealers on the site...
