No matter what anyone feels about Apple and their products, they are groundbreakers and visionaries…and have changed the ways
of the world, and affected the way we communicate and navigate the universe in our lifetime.
I don't think we can imagine how differently our everyday lives would have been, had they never existed.
 
Even though I am not willing to dedicate one of my two wrists, and lose precious waking moments that I spend enjoying one of my glorious
timepieces each and everyday, the iWatch will be yet another installment in the many chapters our lives that Apple has had a profound
influence on. 
 
Besides all that crap, I want one because it's another cool gadget in the "He who dies with the most toys, wins" category

To some, iPhones might have been the first smartphones, but to those who used Windows Mobile, Symbian UIQ on devices like Sony M600 or P1, never really noticed the device come to the market. The same same applies to iWatch, with the difference that there is nor real use for any smartwatch unless one that the manufacturer makes you believe you need. I do use a watch for running, but neither iWatch, nor any other smartwatch will ever provide the functionality of a real sports watch like Garmin FR620, some Suuntos or Leikr. 
 
 
Yet, we live in the world of consumers, so we buy. And by we, I mean myself as well, just not smartwatches :wink:

Ok, so encouraged by shane55 and bigfatpaulie I went and closed a deal on a vintage Omega Constellation. The strap is from Worn and Wound.
 
Hope you guys like it. I'm pretty happy with it.

Congrats, Monoespacio!!!  Lovely classic piece!  A Constellation with a piepan dial is a truly timeless watch. 
 
Wear it in the best of health.

Advice Required......

I'm looking to add a new watch to my small collection and I'm struggling to make a decision on what to go for.....I have 3 options in mind, including

Omega Seamaster 300m coaxial (probably between 5 and 12 years old)

Omega Planet Ocean

Christopher Ward Trident Pro 600

I know that the Omegas are probably a different ball game to the CW but of course the CW would be brand new and probably the 3rd of the price of the Omegas.

What do you guys think and would it be worth spending £1,500 to £2,500 on the Omega. It would certainly get the use in rotation with my Tag Heuer Carrera and Seiko Superior. I do like the look of all three watches and thee is something in my band about strapping a brand like omega to your wrist.

I haven't put on any of my TAGs once I got my Omega Seamaster!

I'd be more than happy to help you, ah, dispose of your unneeded wrist adornments. :wink:

No offense to CW... but Omega all the way.

Does anyone have a recommendation of a reputable place to buy a used watch like an Omega Seamaster? Besides the usual sources like WUS or Ebay?

I have the Planet Ocean and love it to bits but I also have a couple of CW watches and the quality is impeccable. I love the look of the Trident Pro 600 as it is very similar to the Planet Ocean. No doubt I will take some stick for this but I really need the cash right now and am considering selling my beloved Planet Ocean and picking up a Trident. I am also thinning the headphone herd :confused:
