    Congrats @Hubert! Lovely looking watch. I've been thinking about getting the blue.

    Compared to your Spectre, is it the exact same size? I haven't compared the specs, but the look is very similar. Although I do like the sandwich dial on this one. Would love to see a side by side shot.

    Congrats Hubert! I really really like this Omiiiiga

    Does this mean you opted for the Omega over the rose bling lord?

    Thanks Jim!

    I still have my deposit for the other one, but I am waiting for actual pics to decide.

    The blue is lovely as well. I was undecided, until I saw both of them side-by-side in the metal. The black won for me, as it is more faithful to the original.

    I'll add the need to take those pics to my To-Do-List.

    Looking forward to the pics.

    I looked up the specs, the Spectre is 41mm, 15mm thickness & 48mm lug to lug. The new 300 is 42mm, 13.7mm thickness, & almost 50mm lug to lug. So I'm also curious to know your impressions on how they feel and wear on your wrist.

    Update I managed to spend time with both at local AD (who for once were helpful and not abrasive). Both working models and no protective wrapping. Was with them for roughly an hr, they have a newish guy in store who seems to be a keen watch fan.

    Poor pictures this time, but have all pretty much made my mind up.

    Made a difference having the Monaco working & strap adjusted correctly, the Speedy this time didn't feel as good, but I can see the appeal (it ticks all the boxes and if head ruled it would be the one) and I think maybe one I'd like to pick up in a few years (40th in a few).

    But that Monaco has a certain pull and is the current front runner. Just having an extension which is taking longer than planned, but some hopeful celebratory news near Christmas.

    Have been looking for a Vintage Autavia Orange Boy for some time. I may have found it. Fingers crossed it checks out. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Screenshot_20220602-083704_Chrome.jpg

    Speaking on Longines, I swear the new Ultra-Chron made my heart go jump a bit. 5Hz, 50+ hr reserve, vintage diver vibes and a 48mm length. They keep stepping up their game.

    You should also post these over on the corresponding thread in the vintage sub-forum!

    Been trying to buy something really cool, but getting no response from the seller... it's making me look around now, and of course I'm in that difficult position where I could spend £2000 now, or I could wait and spend £3000...

    Saw the Longines today in the window of their brand boutique in GVA. Underwhelmed, unfortunately…

    That’s a shame, what about it was underwhelming?

    Yeah that’s too bad. The colors or just the overall vintage vibe?

    Actually, the absence of vintage vibe ;) The watch just appeared chunky, the case uninspired, the dial not very interesting… Just my personal opinion, obviously.

    Going to my AD later today, also a Longines dealer. Hopefully they have it in stock to try. Hopefully the Tudor explorer II also :rolleyes:
