A very warm welcome to WTF and OMEGALand. Glad you could join us and hope you'll be able to join in the talk and fun we have here on a daily basis. I know you were registered with us in the ole' house but in case you weren't aware, we also have a resource section in the form of a ' Read-Only ' sub-board just above the main Omega forum.
except Zin. He has had complicated surgery that doesn't allow his vocal cords to utter the word Rolex. He's even had the X key removed from his keyboard so that he doesn't accidentally type Rolex. And if he ever referes to the X-33, he just copies and pastes something from a John Wilson post :lol:
You have a very nice collection there--thanks for the photo. I see you have a chronograph from both brands and I was wondering: are the pushers about the same in terms of tension and ease of use? I haven't tried the chronos from either Omega or Rolex and was thinking about trying them out, but what is your reaction? Are they roughly the same? Just wondering is all.
The chrono pushers on the Daytona screw down when not in use for water-proofing. When unscrewed they are firm and flawless. The Omega SeMPC has nice, firm tight pushers that don't screw down but water-resistant nonetheless. Both great examples of modern chronographs - different, but both work perfectly and are highly recommended. If considering a chronograph and want to spend less money (a nice thing) I like the Tag Heuer Carrera - another classic and beautiful watch with the proven Valjoux 7750 movement. Best of luck on whatever you choose.
