Omega Galore. Too many Omega's

Recommended Posts

poulsenrene

Oh boy.
I have been into watches for some years now.
And i know my space hsitory.
But, OMG... Omega, are just going bazerk with ther lineup.
You'll end up very confused, if you try to get head and tail in that story.

I think there's like +1600 different models (in a 4 line set up) at Omega's site.


But, i have cooked it down to two. (for the first buy, and a Rep watch.)
The Seemaster, or the Speedmaster.
Well, two was a relative term...
There are litterally 100's different variations here, and then adding the different Rep manufactor.

What to choose.
It's to be my first Omega.
I can spend mony on it, but i want something, that on arms distance, and on pictures, looks like a geniue item.

What do i choose?

1. Which one  you like the look of

2. One what is available to buy from our TD's 

That's how it works and not just with Omegas - AND always buy VSF factory as they make THE best reps of Omegas.

The Seamaster’s are repped better. 

If buying a speed master just stick to cheapies as due to not having a clone movement they all have dial flaws.

Any if not all Omega reps from VSF are top notch.. choose one you like and send money to the TD, then repeat a few days later... then repeat again! before you know it, you're fucked and in deep!

But if i stay with the cheapest, i do not get anything but a Quartz.
And i am a watch nerd, so the movement doe's count.
The professional, is hand wound, right.
Now we'r into the feel af a rep/watch
I think we cook this into the closest to... Optically.
With a good movement.

I know the 7750 is a delicate, woman to own, but treat her right...

I like the look of thhe originally Moon watch.
And the wave dial of the seamaster 300m.
It's like choosing between two hot twin lady's.

Moon watch will pass at a distance but have dial location issues and sunken datewheels on closer inspection  - OMF do good ones

The Seamaster 300's are a good watch and if VSF are very close to gen down to black balance wheel. 

Email a TD such as Mary at [email protected] and get advice on what is available currently as not all are.

That's actually the best advise i've seen on this forum, yet.
Thanks mate.
I'll drink to that.

Indeed hand wound, the dial spacing is off on the manual reps. 

I wouldn’t waste the extra money on a manual with the same flaw as quartz. 

so much so I bought a gen

I came into the rep world in search of my grail Speedy moonwatch. Ended up buying a gen. Yeah, yeah I know...:handjob:  The speedy reps just don’t cut it and when it’s the watch I always wanted most there was just no choice. 
 

If you like the wavy dial, the VSF Seamaster 300m dive watch are the most spectacular reps I own...I bought a 2nd one recently. Absolutely superb reps. I can’t see myself buying a gen of these as the rep is every bit as good on the wrist.
