The beneficial thing about discussions, is that when somebody posts an image of his new (or vintage) watch, there is consistently somebody who has a fairly ‘special’ variant of that equivalent watch. In the at TimeZone.com, AaronJK posted an image of his new Christmas present:
A Seamaster Chronograph with type 861 (in light of Lemania type 1871). I love this model btw, with those shaded sub dials.
Not long after AaronJK’s unique post in the discussion, ‘quatre_temps’ posts his form of this vintage 1970 Seamaster Chronograph with ‘roulette wheel’. I had never seen this one. Very nice!
And prior to gathering together this post, I will include another vintage (and ‘rare’) Omega observe today. JBagnall posted the accompanying content on the Omega Forum at TimeZone:
“This watch has been in my family for 36 yrs. Initially bought for my Father in 1969 is a genuine World Traveler. With the conceivable special case of South America it has been on each Continent. It has taken a ride on a Yak in Nepal, been on Safari in Africa, endure 4 Monsoon seasons in India, by Motorcycle has crossed the North American mainland no under multiple times and went through all of Western Europe. It has endure Fog, Rain and Snow on various Motorcycle trips, on the whole some place in the district of 200,000km’s. The watch conveys a 930cal (changed 861cal)that abstains from the 12hr counter for a Date Window. “
Although it appears to be that the wristband and case don’t coordinate (case is presumably doubl?© or possibly not 14Kt gold, and the arm band most likely is 14kt gold), it is a magnificent watch! Despite the fact that I am not an aficionado of gold, I would wear this no ifs, ands or buts. Most likely on a pleasant earthy colored croco calfskin tie! The best thing ofcourse, is the story behind this watch that makes it so special.
