re: Paging Broke or Gaston. Watch check???? Updated.


I own two Omegas, and love them both. But, my Planet Ocean is headed out the door today actually because I traded it for my all time grail, a Ulysse Nardin Maxi Marine 263-33. I was ok with parting with it because I still have my Seamaster 300 2254.50 and won't part with it for anything. If you are mulling over buying an Omega, don't. They are fantastic watches and worth the reputation.

I do. Just never had the opportunity to buy one at a decent price.

I waffled between the 42MM planet ocean (2201.50) and the 2254.50. Either are great and will still look awesome in 30 years.

Because you never know when you'll be SCUBA diving 2000 feet down and I didn't want to have the wrong watch.

I use to be big into the OMG gotta have the deepest depth possible.

I don't think I would wear my expensive watch scuba/snorkeling anyway. I have a Gshock for that.

Gary,

That's the same bad boy(2201.50) I just dropped in the mail on it's way to Baltimore. I am definitely going to miss it, but I couldn't pass up the Nardin in the end.

May I ask what you got for it? I haven't kept up with the market lately.

Congrats on the new addition.

I didn't get anything for it per se because it was a trade + cash, but when I bought it last fall I paid 2400 for it. I see the 2500 movement ones going for anywhere from 2400-2800/2900 regularly. The new 8500s with ceramic bezel will make you want to puke though. Wow, they are high.

Thankfully I prefer the aesthetics of the ole 2500. I've convinced myself the new one is "too gray."

Nice. I have an Omega Speedmaster and Rolex Oyster. I prefer the Omega, but will usually wear the Rolex with a suit.

Omega Speedmaster


was one of my on list watches then I decided I didn't need another chrono. I tend to favor based on category and would never wear the others. So to save eventual money I decided to go one in each category: chrono, diver, dress.

I have this right now for my first non fossil over 100 watch. Wife bought it as a christmas gift.

Victorinox Chrono XLS
