Oh, right, got it. I already ordered that. I thought maybe there was another Omega 300 re-issue coming..
There's one out now (the Borealis) and there's MKII one also, probably coming to you in 2025 (but payment cash in advance)

The Borealis one looks well done, but my thing is re-editions from the original maker. MKII isn't even something I'd consider, I'm going nuts just waiting on a Doxa pre-order, and that's less than a year. (hopefully, at least)

The Borealis looks really good, but I would have preferred having the crown at 6 o' clock.

As a guy who has bought a lot of watches with poor resell value I can foresee this one as falling in that category.

This would be the one I would choose. The larger hands def look better.

The watch wears very flat. I had the Crepas L.Ocean which is similar, so if you have smaller wrists you'll get lug overhang.

I like the ZRC, Mike, but am wondering how hard it is to track down an original? What do the originals go for?

I'm excited about the release of the 300 NoT, but would much rather get another vintage 300 Pro (I never should have sent that back to you :lol: )
Though I expect that original ZRCs are much harder to find than vintage Doxa.

Nothing if you are a person. A watch however should not have a stubby cock.

I know I know.

I should have bought a watchco when they were going for 2500 AUD :banghead:

There's many, many awesome watches I'd love to get, but I'm out of the above $500 game now, and on a super strict one in, one out diet.

The Doxa 1000t that's for sale here now makes me salivate profusely for example, just cannot do it.

I have my Quartz GS and the speedy reduced my wife gave me and that's it.

So for me it's Borealis replica or nothing, so I picked the replica.

Old ones are hard to find ....and...they are 36mm

I might have to do this.
