I have not always been a fan of Brietling but with this comparison I think they might be growing on me. Omega is a strong company and I have always been a huge fan of their Speedmaster collection, but that is why I give so much praise to the Superocean right now. It has such a simplified dial...

I’ve just purchased my first vintage OMEGA with a 131.250 model with a cal.601 movement
I’m trying to see what I can do to get it to it’s best without compromising the integrity. I’ve ordered a buckle that will match the year (plated), but am thinking maybe restoring or replacing the...
I'm looking to buy a luxury watch for my father.
People speak about TAG not being as prestigious, why is this?
What marks the different between TAG, Omega and Breitling from a reputation point of view?
I inherited this watch, need help identifying it. It was given to my father in the early 70's(I believe) in Spain. My research hasn't come up with anything. Any help would be gratefully appreciated. Thank you
Hi guys. Some advice needed please.
I really am needing to scratch a GMT itch that I have.
I have always loved the Omega Seamaster 50th Anniversary GMT model which is of course discontinued now.
I've been on the look out for a good condition, pre-owned watch and have been scouring the internet...
I'm hoping someone can help me with some info on these 2 watches I'm looking at. Been trying to find info online but haven't had much luck yet. I'm curious about the model name, any history of the model, age, any guesses on value.
1) 1940's Longines. Pretty minimal in terms of...
I would like to share a recent Omega experience to all who believe in the importance of after-sales service.
A few weeks after purchasing my Omega Seamaster late last year, I noticed that the hour handle did not line up with hour markers at each hour point. I was prepared to live with that...
After some scouring on the internet I have found this forum to be the best place to ask for help.
Looking to buy a present for SO.
I have found a Vintage Omega Ladymatic seemingly from 1960's.
The supplied serial number is 565.002, searches on the Omega Vintage Database have returned...
I picked this up today for right around $300.00
It's marked 14K, I did test it with nitric acid and a scratch stone to verify.
It weighs 17.8 grams total and about 15.6 with the movement out.
I believe it's been over wound as it only spins freely in one direction and there's resistance if you...
Hey guys, here are some pics of a vintage Omega Constellation Pie-Pan model that I've recently inherited from my dad. I'm new to the watch collecting, and this and a few others of his have really sent me into looking at vintage watches.

Hi everyone, I just want to work out some pre purchase jitters here from an Omega newbie.
So the watch I'm looking at is a 1959 Seamaster caliber 591, model number 14704. It has some dings and some patina on the face, but is in overall good working order and keeps time well. It has recently...
after quite a few years away from the WIS scene, i've decided to renew my passion for watches. i must admit that this has been triggered by my brother wanting me to repair a broken link on the seiko sport 150 that i got for him one christmas over 20 years ago now. and the reason i got hooked...
