I absolutely love clean, clear and simple watches. Don't get me wrong, I do like a quirky watch as well. But this Omega is special to me as I purchased it from a customer just a few weeks into my apprenticeship. I did not know a heck of a lot about watches back then, being a 16 year old. But I knew Omega was a good brand because my boss had one and would not stop raving about them. A guy came in and offered this for sale and my boss was not around, so I offered him £20 for it (the glass was cracked and it was very scratched, the dial was badly stained and it had a scrappy leather strap and I was only earning £16.50/week) which was duly accepted - I was chuffed to bits. My boss later told me off big time as I was not supposed to do deals with customers (I think he was jealous as I know he would have bought it in a heartbeat). So I have had this for many years and would never part with it.
