Been after one of these for a while. Going in tomorrow to haggle. Wish me luck!  

Yeah, I also like that one a lot. Not quite up to your guys levels, but my wife got me this for Christmas...  

Prematurely touted a Lange once before but hope this one won't get away. Have been looking for a year or so, they are like hens' teeth.

It was only a matter of time.  X-mas gift to me...  I expect the wifey will make me let her wrap it up.  She loves to make me suffer...LOL.

Already thinking on a brown alligator strap with proper Omega deployment buckle...  Self control is overrated.

That's the first Omega in space if I'm not mistaken? 

 

It's a great looking watch and I really like the box that they include. 

 

If you are going to be changing straps but don't have a tool have your AD order you one. I got caught out thinking it was in my seamasters box. An odd omission seeing the crazy amount of OEM options they have..

While waiting to have my Omega FOIS "gifted" to me for X-mas I had a weak moment and pre-ordered one of these.

It is a Baltic Aquascaphe in the blue sun ray dial with gilt finish.  A retro inspired divewatch.  Nothing too fancy, but it caught my eye.  Pre-ordered so I won't see it until mid-next year.  A "micro brand" assembled in France. 

I ordered it with both the tropical style rubber strap and the "beads of rice" 316L bracelet.  I like that they're quick release for an easy swap.  Double domed sapphire crystal and sapphire bezel.  Good for 200M, but I would never dive that deep...i find most the fun stuff is above 100' and generally 20-40'.  I don't dive that often these days so this is more about the aesthetic including the 39mm sizing.  The movement is a Miyota 9039 automatic with a 42 hr reserve.  Reliable, basic and helps keep the case at a relatively thin 12mm.

I've been spending like a sailor at port in Bangkok...
