A new beater my GF got as a gift. I know these aren't typical fuk approved (and a manual) but it kicks the arse of a lot of the fashion watches I see in here from time to time.

Mines an Omega Geneve. Pretty cheap range compared to more favoured Omega in the 70s. Changed over (by her) onto a mesh strap. Plexi glass and crown has a few scratches but that's on trend now isn't it?! Laughing out loud

Sorry, but that looks like something you would pay for in installments from QVC.

I came across this (https://wearchronos.com/) the other day and I'm tempted to pre-order - even though its slightly concerning that they keep pushing back the shipping date.

After trying various watches on and deliberating, settled on a Sub No Date. Picked it up today. Couldn't be happier.

Solid choice, good work. That's the other Rolex I'd like. I reckon the no date is the one to have.

I was stuck in 2 minds on date vs no date. Preferred aesthetic of no date and Mrs tipped me over the edge when she quite rightly pointed out I've never really worn a watch regularly before and managed fine without the date on my wrist for all those years..Laughing out loud

Very happy with it. Ended up buying at retail which was a nice experience too. Was on the waiting list for.. 4 hours. Smiling Didn't quite expect one to pop up so quickly but I jumped on it nonetheless.

If you're spending 5k you're not going to snuff over an extra £700 quid. Laughing out loud its certainly a bonus to save it but I prefer the no date.
