First Nice Watch

So I joined the forum a few months ago to educate myself on Rolexís. I have always wanted a submariner and had my heart set on a no date 14060M.

I prefer the vintage style and size of earlier watches and didnít want anything flashy. Eventually after looking around I just didnít feel confident enough to buy a used Rolex either online or private party. I had a local dealer quote me a price on a used one which was basically new msrp.

Dismayed I began looking for alternatives. Thatís when I found the Omega 60th anniversary collection and specifically the Seamaster. I know some find this to be ďfakeĒ vintage, but this watch had everything I was looking for. Itís the right size, clean lines and dial and will be a perfect one watch for daily wear.

The watch arrived today and am extremely excited. I donít think I would have had the same feeling with a used Rolex.

Pictures to follow when itís light out and bracelet is sized.

Congratulations! Nice watch.

I do not see it as "fake" vintage, just different color lume...assuming you're referring to the lume color when you said "fake vintage"

You need to have... I think... 10 posts before you can upload a picture. You only has 6 more to go

One thing Iím notice already is it doesnít take much to mark up the bracelet clasp.

I’d say for your first “nice watch” you hit it out of the park. Beautiful!
