2011 - First New Arrival

Post by Northwestguy on Wed 12 Jan 2011, 11:05 pm

Well guys, this baby is one I have had an itch for but I just never got around to scratching it until I saw something someone posted in the forums not too long ago. This someone happens to be Tim aka porschefan. I had contacted Tim regarding his post and he filled me in on the initial details of the watch. It was a watch that his AD came upon and was putting it up for sale. I immediately reacted and had Tim contact his AD and put the watch on hold. After a couple of emails and phone calls, the deal was done! I know Tim doesn't want any fan fare coming his way but too bad Tim! I am so appreciative for everything you did to make this deal happen. The leg work was not necessary and you went far beyond in your efforts to help me out. So for this, I am so very grateful. Thanks my friend! I love this watch and it exceeds my expectations. It is a pre-owned but in immaculate Mint condition. It is running -4 seconds in 24 hours so far with 1 day of cursory testing. Here are some quick pics of the Omega Seamaster GMT:








Pros:
Size : 41mm but plays larger
Movement: smooth winding Omega caliber 1128. 23 jewel COSC automatic based on the ETA 2892-A2. 44 hour power reserve.
Love the look and the GMT function. Can't go wrong with a black dialed watch! Comfortable Bond bracelet. Cool caseback design. Great Lume.

Cons:
No micro adjustment on the clasp but there is one half link. So far no problem with the fit on my 7 3/8 " wrist.
No quick date change but does have independent hour hand movement.

Overall impression: Keeper................it's my second Omega and I love the Brand!
