    Hi Jesse, I also have an Omega which I wear frequently for a dress watch. It is round, 32mm diameter, automatic, green-gold filled with a gold dial. It also has the date which is quick set. The band is a link band which is integral to the watch. It was in like new condition when I bought it at a yard sale about 10 years ago for $1. It keeps perfect time, and need not be reset when worn over a 10 day period. I have never had the watch serviced. So, needless to say, it is a favorite. Tom

    Tom,

    You bought it at a yard sale for $1.00? I'd even pay $ 1.56 Canadian for that one! Do you remember the address?

    Regards,
    Doug S.

    Hi Doug, I bought the watch at a sale outside of Erie, PA. If you've ever done yard sales, you know that there are "professional yard sales" and there "one time" yard sales. I guess one can tell by the signs and the way it is set up. This was a "one time" yard sale. It looked like a group of 2-3 neighbors set up in one front yard. I found the watch in with a box of kitchen items, believe it or not. Usually watches are in with the costume jewelry.

    I have found a number of nice watches at yard sales over the years although they are getting more scarce. About 25 years ago, I let many wristwatches lie on the table because of my lack of interest--only interested in pocket watches at the time. I know I probably passed on some really nice ones. Some of the ones that I can remember getting at yard sales are: 7 solid gold Hamiltons, two solid gold Gruens, 4 military wristwatches, one Vacheron, many other no-name ww's and pocket watches too numerous to count. I think the most that I ever paid was $3.00 for the V-C.

    I never fail to stop at a yard sale. Used to drive my ex-wife up the fence. Although, she never complained when I would give her a solid gold ww to wear. She took with her when she left 15 solid gold and 2 platinim ww that I had given her. Actually a cheap price for her to leave. Tom
