sold for 2.4 eu - it wasn't a watchco version, fully rebuilt from original & nos parts by Omega in Bienne, had the paperwork provenance for all the work too. It had a new dial, hands and insert, almost all nos movement so lost all the original tritium bits but was nice to have something verified 100% by Omega. regret selling. I'm considering buying a replacement within the next couple of weeks but going for something totally different, although there is a 120 on ebay at the mo, labelled as an IDF military watch but I have my doubts on that, still a very handsome old watch with og dial and bezel.

brilliant watches the 120, even the watchco rebuilds which to be fair are the same thing - wore mine as much as the sub and was stupid to let it go.

had the shark mesh but preferred the rubber

Did you keep the old woven steel strap

Always think a black strap works well especially with the orange dial

went on the hunt today around bond st, looking for jurawatches but they've gone and specifically the glashutte nomos zurich weltzeit. I don't know of any of dealers other than watches of Switzwerland who don't keep the range in store and will only get one in if you buy it Puzzled

Tried on a few affordable grails, a very nice Autavia 2446 GMT, albeit a touch too pricey and the bezel was really faded, prefer the stronger colouring in those. An Omega 200 shom (far too bulky and a joke and unaffordable at 5.5k), one of the nicest 120 baby ploprofs I've seen with og bezel insert and og mesh, unfortunately not the og dial & I didn't keep it on too long when they told me they wanted 4.5k for it and finally a really nice Heuer Bundeswehr Chronograph, very affordable and a lovely dial - v tempted to sway from the weltzeit, identical to this:

found a retailer with the nzm - just behind where i'm working! tried on today, such a good looking watch, in-house movement , stunning on the wrist- would look great on a few custom straps, esp a nice burgundy croc.

Have always liked that Nomos, although now I'm thinking there's too much text. Would be nicer if that dial on the right was the date
