The new Omega again. Just so insanely light and comfortable on a nato strap, and the dial and bezel go from almost black to a very cool vintage looking tropic brown depending on the angle. Still trying to capture it, but the domed crystal and my poor i-Phone camera skills are not helping.

Ok. I give in. I love this one.
“To absent friends, lost loves, old gods, and the season of mists; and may each and every one of us always give the devil his due.”
― Neil Gaiman, The Sandman

I bought a cheap watch from a crazy man
Floating down canal
It doesn't use numbers or moving hands
It always just says now
Now you may be thinking that I was had
But this watch is never wrong
And If I have trouble the warranty said
Breathe In, Breathe Out, Move On

groovin' with my lockdown impulse buy, Sharkmaster 300, #4 produced... I've owned a couple late 60's Omega SM300 and a couple Watchco, and the Helson compares pretty favorably for the $$... they definitely got a lot right and the gliding clasp is a nice touch, domed sapphire, drilled lugs and ETA 2824 too... the hollow end links fit well but have a little rattle (doesn't bother me, gives a vintage feel ;), I think newer ones might have SEL? ) and the case edges and crown are a little sharp compared to Omega, but for the money, no complaints at all :cheers:

Thanks guys! Went outside to try to capture the warm brown tropical color. This is a fail of a pic, but captures the tropical coloring a bit better.
