      RWG Needs Your Support - upgrade to a VIP/Supporter membership! If you find your time here to be useful and (we hope) entertaining, we encourage you to become a VIP/Supporter member.

By becoming a supporter you will also gain a number of benefits including: 1. If you subscribe during one of our VIP upgrade competitions (announced above the shoutybox on the board index page and also found in our competitions subforum), then you could win a nice watch (usually a high-quality rep). We run these competitions approximately monthly, so keep your eyes open for the next one. You will also get access to our free birthday VIP giveaways - you could win a strap, watch tools or even a watch (there have been some amazing prizes including gen Longines, Raymond Weil, Hamilton and Victorinox watches, along with various high-end reps!) 2. Early access to the Member Sales area (see the sales area for rules) and the ability to bump your sale to the top of the board periodically. 3. Access to the supporters-only section of the board. 4. Increased PM storage 5. The ability to change your displayed user name (once in a 90-day period). 6. Occasional discounts from some of our dealers (keep an eye on their subforums for special offers).

  1. Genuine Wrist Check - July 17

    That is bloody lovely. Thank you :) I still can't believe it's mine!
  2. Thanks! I'm so proud of it :)
  3. I ended up getting a new crystal directly from Omega. :)
  4. Buying a gold 1601 datejust at 22?

    Like others said, buy what makes you happy. :) I'm also 22 years old and I couldn't care less what people think about my watches. I love them and I spend way to much time staring at them without even looking at the time! haha
  5. Yes, it's from the 60's! I found out this morning that there's a little omega logo in the center of the glass and it changed my mind. I think I'll just polish the crystal a little bit to remove the tiny scratches but leave the big ones to show some history. :)
  6. Thanks a lot :)
  7. Hi everyone, This weekend I got the greatest deal of my life and got the chance to buy a beautiful gen Omega at a really good price! I'm super happy about it and still can't believe that it's mine! :) Now, I would like to change the crystal because it has a few scratches, but it got me thinking. Would it be okay if I just go to a local watchmaker to put a new crystal or I should not consider putting a crystal that's not from Omega? Thank you very much for your help/opinion and have a great day :)
  8. The "What vintage watch are you wearing today?" Thread

    That is a beautiful piece my friend, stunning.............. Thank you very much, you've got a beautiful watch too :)
  9. The "What vintage watch are you wearing today?" Thread

    I've never been so lucky in my life! So glad that I found this :)

    Just got this beauty! I'll try to take better pics soon. :)
  11. DC WRIST PORN: The 5205

    Absolutely beautiful! I'm glad they did the fake fonction. I always thought it would be better putting not working fonction but Gen looking, than compromising the look of the watch by trying to make everything fonctionnal. Congrats!
  12. Thanks! Maybe I'll work on more variations later. (stainless steel bezel, albino, gold...)
