one off the first things that attracted me too omega was my grandfathers one
he won it in a raffle in 1940 befoure he went was shipped to india so he could be trained as pilot in the RAF. he later wore the watch in his american made thuderbolt plane when he protected british ships from japanise bombers. after the war he returned home too scotland and became a head teacher off a school he worked there until he retired. he is now in his 80s and still wears his 60 year old omega too this day. i asked him about it and he told me that he had sent it to the watch shop too be cleaned and oiled twice in the time he had it.
he says that his wife and his watch were the only things off value he ever won
it makes me sad cause he is in intesive care at the moment and it looks like his omega will out live him
but i will allways remmber him as a kind and brave man who faught for his country and educated thousands off children
thats why i wanted my omega in the hope that it will be a lucky charm and i can be half the man he is.
sorry about spelling i got owned by dyslexia
