Yes, I must admit the geared wheels and the OMEGA logo on the smaller gear do look very appealing. Truly superb!!

Very cool indeed, particularly because the photog had the good sense to put a black PO on the winder and not an orange abomination.

It's gotta be the coolest winder I've ever seen. Too bad the Omega logo spoils it for me (and I'm serious on that one).

Brrrrrrrr, 20 below zero! This one goes on the sub zero wall And now for the Rolex issue of this winder, would be Absolute Zero (calculated by yet another brilliant fellow countryman: Prof. Kamerlingh Onnes).


Take care guys,

Frans.

Woa that thing is wicked awesome!! Do they sell those or just give them to AD's. I'd like to get one for the yellow monster if they don't cost that much.

I am guessing that baby costs a bunch!! Very cool though, thanks for sharing JJ.

Would have thought Tyler it costs a lot more than your watch.

I agree. Since a regular winder already costs more than a Seiko monster, I'd hazard a guess this baby costs about as much as a TAG Heuer Kirium.

I do like that winder ( minus the Omega logo) and have been in the market for a new one. I was thinking of this one......I like the understated look....





The nearly 90 carats of diamonds (over 1500 stones) can be exchanged for rubies, emeralds, sapphires, etc., or you can get the solid gold version that has 3.5 kg of gold in it.

On second thought, the batteries aren't included, so I'll pass.
