Back on the wrist after a while...

Back on the wrist after a while...... and back in love. You know that feeling when you haven't worn something in a while and start to think maybe you could do without it - and then you try it back on and immediately wonder what you were possibly thinking..?

Beautiful watch! It's always a great idea to leave them sitting for a while when in doubt and revisit later. That strategy clearly worked here and left you with a renewed appreciation for this piece, rightfully so. Continue enjoying in good health.

Kicking myself for not picking one up when I had the chance.

Beautiful watch!

Whenever I see this watch here in the forum, I always think that it is classically beautiful and timeless. The metallic blue hands and silvery dial appeal to me. I would say definitely keep them.
I currently own two Omega, a black SMP and a 3861 Hesalit, which I wear alternately. So I have this joy every day and think, wow, what beautiful watches. I'm glad I have her.

That looks really great on you

Are the hands blue? It’s a bit tough to tell…

100% agree. I actually find that my true love for a watch happens about 6 months after initial purchase. The lust wears off and then it's either true love or it's gotta go!

Beautiful, just out of curiosity is the number edition on yours under the 3000 figure? Asking since there is lots of people saying is discontinued and only 3k made some others say still in production. Thanks!

20XX

I'm pretty sure the watch was discontinued based on numerous discussions with ADs - but I think there are still a few out there and it wouldn't surprise me if Omega is drip-feeding the last few

I just love that Omega didn't give the watch a name. CK 859 is as cool and stealth as it gets...

Nice! I was lucky enough to snatch the only one so far my dealer has seen on their store, mine is in the 9xx. Thanks for your reply!

It is discontinued. I did pick one up in December No. 6xx but it was one the dealer held back. They haven't received any for a while now and can't order one.

Beautiful watch but something about the brown strap irks me, I think that Omega should be providing a more refined strap with this, the white stitches looks cheap to me.
