I’ve always wanted an Omega Seamaster… to be honest, I’ve always wanted the 3, 6, 9 subdial layout model, but that models also uses the 33xx series of movement from Omega, which I have heard has a lot of problems, which is unfortunate. So I have ended up with the Bond Seamaster, which uses a Valjoux 7750 movement, immediately identifiable by its subdial layout.


This is a sweet watch, and I am really enjoying it. Interestingly so, it seems more busy to me than a Breitling does. Possibly because of the colors and the bracelet and the bezel. I really do like the divots in the bezel… they look really cool. Also its a very robust feeling watch, that doesn’t make me worry about scratching it so much as a Ling (not that I really worry too much about that anymore either).


I’ve always loved the machined clasps that Omega uses on their watches. They are a bit hard to open sometimes and I have almost pinched myself pushing on the releases, but it looks very nice. No stamped steel here!


As you can see, the 42mm diameter watch looks very appropriate on my smalle 6 3/4″ wrists. I think this one might be a keeper afterall!
