    Here is a picture of my favorite watch. Thankfully I purchased it long before they become popular. You watch boys know more about this than I do. For those not familiar with this watch it is a high grade (right?) watch and when I purchased it I was disappointed to find I had to wind the thing every day or so. Such a good watch and not an automatic? Hmmmm.
    It is an Omega Seamaster, sometimes referred to as "the man on the moon" version stemming from the Apollo program? I purchased this in 83 as a used watch. I know it has been in production or reproduction since that time.

    That is one of my All Time favorites... I am believe, when NASA tested the watches, there was a general belief, now dispelled, that an automatic watch wouldnt wind in a 0 gravity situation.. The funny thing is that the automatic version is smaller and cheaper.. I will have one of those one day!!

    I sorta like the gold Seamasters from the 50's and early 60's too!!

    That bumper Omega is just too cool!

    I've owned several Speedmasters, manual and
    auto. The manual "Real" Speedmaster Professional is by far the better watch.
    They are truely special. I wonder if the modern one is still a Lemania movt. and still
    has the same quality?
