I'm new to the forum. I like both Omega and Rolex. I know some have negative feelings, so I hope this doesn't offend. Here are some of my favorite watches. Thanks for looking....

welcome back Mr Joelmor,

a lot of us have the collection with other brands....

at least you have them in the proper order:D:D:D

your two Omegas are very nice choices, that third Omega could be a speedy:biggrin: that would round out your collection very nicely:thumbup1:

overall a very nice collection of fine watches indeed:thumbup1:

:):)

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:

Nice looking line-up, Joel. I'm fairly new to mechanicals, and I recognize the two Omegas, but what are those others? Is it R O L E X? :confused1: :wink:

No problem with Rolex here!

It was the sale of mine that funded my early Omega purchases which eventually matured into my current collection.

Hi Joel and a very warm welcome to WTF from me too.

That is a fantastic collection of wrist watches.:thumbup::thumbup:

I only have one of your collection in my own collection. And it isn't one of the Omegas.:scared:

Zin was a little perturbed by this until I told him I have twice as many Omegas as I do Rolexes (correct at time of going to press).

Hope you enjoy the banter and the common affection for all things horological on this professionally run forum.

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.

Hi Haakon,
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.
