Member Name: realspecialone
Advantages: Swiss Made, Looks, Build Quality and Potential investment
Disadvantages: Price, Servicing Costs & Resale values can be low on certain models.
This watch exudes elegance and class with it's well scultped and curvaceous case to it's swiss made and highly precise rhodium plated movement. I have worn this watch with a suit and when I go sailing and I get so many compliments. This watch is not flashy like a Rolex and does not shout out I have so much money, it's understated but respected. I have taken this watch everywhere I go abroad, whether it's in very hot or very cold climates. The attention to detail that Omega have gone to in order to make this watch perfect is astounding and they even put a geneva wave on the dial that creates a very unique look and the engraving of a sea horse on the caseback.
I have owned this watch for 6 years and mechanically it has not failed me once. The only issue I have had with this watch is the clasp and how the links loosen over time but apart from that it's flawless. Also it can scratch quite easily but can be buffed out by a jeweller.
The disadvantages of this watch is it's price, it costs about the same as a good secondhand car, servicing costs and replaced parts are high but this adds to the experience of owning such a high quality and reputable timepiece.
I would recommend this watch, in any guise, to anyone looking for something that is rugged but sophiscated at the same time and is not wanting to buy the usual suspects like Rolex, TAG Heuer or Breitling. If it's good enough for James Bond then it's good enough for me.
Summary: Impressive looks, swiss build quality and reasonable price to match
