    I'm liking that orange Aquaracer more and more. Looks great!

    Infidélités…
    (but the vibe of Heuer’s golden era is there)

    Flawless face, but you have to have a wrist that can handle a rather voluptuous a.. rrière-train :D

    Top heavy isn’t. Need to wear this one pretty tight around the wrist. Lovely nonetheless.

    More like very poor springbar placement. They're at the tops of the lugs rather than the bottom - prob to make the bracelet look more flush

    Kinda. However, that’s not really a big issue thanks to the presence of a tool-less, 6-position, quick-adjust clasp.

    Not sure whether that would have made a big difference ::confused2:: IMHO, the weight would still have remained very “concentrated”. That said, the bracelet does look pretty nice (especially by Omega standards) and is very comfy (short links for the win).

    It would, but with spring bars at the bottom of the lugs it would feel more like it was hugging the wrist, rather than feeling top-heavy (IMO)

    What's most important of course is that you're into it :thumbsup: (And I really like the macro photo of the inset tachy track. I like that they lumed it on the new Mark II)

    You’ve piqued my curiosity… I’ll pay more attention to this detail on the 2 or so other watches with hidden lugs I own!

    EDIT: Actually wearing one today, but with this one weight isn’t really an issue :p

    Why the hell haven't you shared this on WRUW before? I love these! And this is a really nice-looking example :thumbsup:

    Because I stumbled across this one (pretty much by chance) not that long ago. And because it took me another couple of weeks to order and mount the Forstner ladder bracelet (which IMHO really elevates the whole thing to another level)…

    Also, this example isn’t really up to the standards of many vintage collectors around here (and the following is on top of the non-Gay-Frères bracelet):
    - Case isn’t the sharpest anymore (good ones are really hard to find with the octagonal Defy),
    - Hands don’t have their original tritium anymore and have been relumed,
    - Plexi instead of the correct mineral crystal (Although that could be changed relatively easily, I actually like the “sheen” the plexi gives to the dial).
