  1. Thanks for your replies :-) It's good to have the option of leather or Nato as I now have both. I think if I wore the Seamaster while playing golf, the Nato would have a good shout. If the Seamaster is out for an evening meal, then definitely leather only. I guess it's good to expand the strap collection as well as the watches :-)
  2. Hi all Two of my vintage Omega's needed their straps replacing. The 1962 Omega Seamaster 600 had a horrible Fixo-flex strap with dings all over. The 1972 Omega De Ville had a horrible cheap leather strap that was fraying. Solution, NATO's to the rescue. http://www.flickr.com/photos/90503628@N04/8467484749/in/set-72157632699217302 http://www.flickr.com/photos/90503628@N04/8467479971/in/set-72157632699217302 I also have a couple of spare good quality black leather straps but thought the Nato's gave them a totally different look. What do you think?
  3. Pictures? We are quite simple here an love a group shot! Here are some of my watches that I have photographed. http://www.flickr.com/photos/90503628@N04/8448158017/in/set-72157632699217302 http://www.flickr.com/photos/90503628@N04/8449215028/in/set-72157632699217302 http://www.flickr.com/photos/90503628@N04/8448201417/in/set-72157632699217302 http://www.flickr.com/photos/90503628@N04/8448164663/in/set-72157632699217302 I haven't got a full group shot of all my watches & pocket watches together yet, it's something still to do :-) Cheers.....
  4. GRAIL = A Patek Philippe Aquanaut 5165A, I am hopeful :-)
  5. So far my modest collection has 24 wrist watches & 4 pocket watches. 28 in total, some high quality but some junk :-)
  6. Wow, this has got to be the coolest thread on the whole site. I just love Omega's from 50s - 70s and his thread is just pure eye candy :-) Here are my modest 3 Omega's.

  7. Hi all This is my first posting in the pocket watch section so hello to everyone. I have these 3 pocket watches in my very modest collection which were inherited from my late Grandfather. If any of you pocket watch guru's have any information on these watchmakers (or the case silversmiths), I would be most interested to know. http://www.flickr.com/photos/90503628@N04/8448201417/in/set-72157632699217302 J.N.

  8. I feel sorry for him, as that must have been a very scary and frightening experience paying £30k for that :-) Seriously though, he could have bought a Patek Philippe World Time for that money. But losing that would really have bought tears to his eyes. Let's hope once he gets his insurance compensation through, he comes to his senses & joins the Watch Forum and asks advice on how to spend £30k on watches.................(off now to daydream :-)...............
  9. Thanks Foxdog, much appreciated. I like your signature strapline :-)
  10. Andyclient A stunning collection of vintage Omega's, really nice. For me the shining stars are the Seamasters, Dynamic & Dress Watch. Thanks again for sharing & congrats on such a mouth watering collection.
  11. Nice watches, nice to own a couple of the more unusual models & movement. I have the Seiko equivalent, the Premier Kinetic Perpetual. http://www.flickr.com/photos/90503628@N04/8449276194/in/set-72157632699217302 So far my'n still works fine, but I have read tales of the capacitor failing & needing replacement on both the Omega's & Seiko's. Fingers crossed ours continue to work. Thanks for sharing your Omega's :-)
  12. Andyclient Wow, what a collection of vintage Omega's you have. You could open a showroom with that lot :-) For some reason your attached image wouldn't open/connect. Would love to see photos.. Congrats on a cool collection :-)
  13. Littlelegs Very nice, especially on the sporty strap, a cool look :-)
  14. Avo Love the Marvin, it looks very nice on that strap which enhances the arabic numerals with the colour match. Nice...
  15. Avo, the 58 Seamaster looks prestine. I love the Dynamic which has such an unmistakable 70s look. A very nice looking family :-)
  16. Avo More closeups. http://www.flickr.com/photos/90503628@N04/8449287530/in/set-72157632699217302 http://www.flickr.com/photos/90503628@N04/8448168225/in/set-72157632699217302 http://www.flickr.com/photos/90503628@N04/8448166141/in/set-72157632699217302 http://www.flickr.com/photos/90503628@N04/8449247886/in/set-72157632699217302 http://www.flickr.com/photos/90503628@N04/8449247886/in/set-72157632699217302 http://www.flickr.com/photos/90503628@N04/8449273932/in/set-72157632699217302 http://www.flickr.com/photos/90503628@N04/8448170711/in/set-72157632699217302 http://www.flickr.com/photos/90503628@N04/8449270352/in/set-72157632699217302 http://www.flickr.com/photos/90503628@N04/8449265556/in/set-72157632699217302 Enjoy :-)
  17. Aha, the photo has just appeared after a refresh, very nice :-)
  18. Avo You have a very nice family of Vintage Omega's there, do you have any photos. Would love to see them, especially the 58 Seamaster :-)
  19. Wow, very nice indeed. Will you have the face tactfully cleaned & sharpened up, or keep it in it's original condition. This is always the dilemma, I faced the same quandry. A great buy, nice one!
  20. Hi all I have put together a photo collage of my 3 vintage Omega's, showing watch face, movement & caseback inner. The watch models are:- 1/ Omega De Ville (162.0047) calibre 1002, 20 jewel, (1970) 2/ Omega Seamaster 600 (135.001) calibre 601, 17 jewel, (1962) 3/ Omega De Ville (151.0039) calibre 711, 24 jewel (1972) I love vintage Omega's, I hope you do too. Thanks for looking. http://www.flickr.com/photos/90503628@N04/8449215028/in/set-72157632699217302/
  21. A classic watch, legendary movement & great photos. Thanks for sharing :-)
  22. A big hello from the Isle of Man! My name is Paul Milligan and I'm an alcoholic...........sorry wrong forum; I mean 'horology enthusiast' :-) I am very pleased to join this forum and look forward to meeting you all. I have a modest selection/collection of watches from pocket watches, to vintage 60s & 70s classics, through to modern models. I am particularly fond of 50s to 70s Omegas, but any watch has some level of fascination to me. Anyhow enough about me, time now for some forum exploring...... Speak soon :-) Paul M
