First Omega

MY first Omega Blue 300 Diver Chronograph. Tried it on at AD this weekend and loved it.

Nice!

I just got my first omega last week. A Seamaster 300 Blue dial but not the Chrono.

In the first pic it looks like it has red hands, must just be the light

Yes it's just the light making them look red. Was on the fence about going with 300 diver vs chronograph. Seeing as how I currently didn't have a chrono I went that direction. Was overall really impressed with the finishing on the Omega watches. Was nice seeing cases at the AD actually stocked with a large representation of what the manufacturer offers.

nice watch! enjoy it! it is nice to go to an AD or boutique and see the inventory there! As a multi-brand owner, it is depressing to visit Rolex. I somewhat feel bad for the ADs.

What is the lug to lug length on that? I would love one, but with a 6.5 inch wrist, don’t think I can pull off almost 45mm.

I see. Thatís for that. That a fair amount more than my speedy pro (which is pushing it for me) and my 16610 at like 48/49mm lug to lug.
