First Omega....

Well, I came across this 45.5mm seamaster PO a couple months ago and was finally able to broker what I thought was a decent deal. The watch was purchased in 2011 by the original owner and had it serviced by Omega 8 months ago to the tune of $650. It included all paperwork, boxes and three straps (Omega Rubber), Original unworn Omega metal band with extra links and a sharkskin leather band. In addition it had tools to change bands and 4 extra omega watch pins. I purchased it for $2,500. I am usually a rolex guy but don't like wearing my 1971 1016 that often because of its age and value. So I thought I'd buy something a little more sporty. I've always like the look of the omega seamaster so I thought I'd try one out. Keeps great time and is really comfortable to wear... Liking it so far!

Looks nice. Wish they had it in a 40mm though.

That takes me back, had the exact same one. Same strap with optional bracelet. Super timepiece!
