Good morning all.

I recently came across the Omega Equinoxe online and have been looking at them for a couple of weeks now.  Watches don't get more 80's from what I can tell other than the Omega time computer which I also like the look of- obviously for the retro looks.

Most of the ones for sale have issues so I gather they aren't the most reliable watch in the world, and some of the values are shocking compared to what they were judging by search results on here from 8-9 years ago, but has anyone on here ever owned one, and are they truly terrible or actually decent and interesting?!

Thanks, TC

I know nothing about the "Vestal Monte Carlo" but have to admit they have a similar retro appeal, looking at pictures up close though I'm not so sure now!!  The Omega is far nicer.

I have one, fully working.  They seem to have a few issues if not cared for, and if the bracelet is short then avoid them as you can't extent the bracelet.

I don't usually link to my own website, but there is all sorts of information there about this model I researched and I am not typing it all out again :tongue:

I remember being tempted by one of these TH Microtimers.

Pretty funky, I imagine they look great when photographed well but may be a disappointment on the wrist...
