Thoughts and considerations on buying my nexts watch which will be an Omega Vintage.

Wrist = is 5 3/4" aka 14.6cm
Ideal Dial = would be 29.2mm to 36.mm
Ideal Lug-to-Lug = 36.5mm to 45.6mm

And to give context, the Marlin Lug-to-Lug is 48mm and covers my wrist.

Key Criteria

1950's Omega Seamaster Waffle Dial, Manual Dial 34mm.

Very similar to the 1948 reissue but I feel better!

The 1948 version was under the case model CK 2577.

There is also the Omega Seamaster 1955 under the case model CK 2846.

I found this 2846-2 SC (below) which looks almost identical to the 1948 reissue.

Probably similar to below.

Dial
34mm

Silver Single Tone

Texture looks so cool and all white makes 34mm wear bigger.

Let me know if ever available and even more ideal if a 36mm or 35mm exists.

More than ok with automatic.

1957 VINTAGE OMEGA SEAMASTER SUB SECOND WATCH

Example on the right is similar to the 1948 reissue but,

  • I like the hands of the real vintage better.
  • On the vintage, don't like dots beside the number.

$1550.00 USD for the Vintage

Dial
35.8mm

Lug-to-Lug
43.5mm

Silver Single Tone

Otherwise next choice would be the sub second dial.

Size: must be 36mm ideal and 35.8mm here also good.

Looking for a cleaner dial then posted so far.

Clean white but also silver would be good too.

Black is ok, but then a texture is preferred.

Automatic or Manual.

Paul Newman's watch model where original auctioned for 17.8MM in 2017,

Variant with black bezel,

Variant with no red,


Yes I know I can't afford the real Daytona.

Ok with off colour like this 1960 M95 calibre 35.5mm Movado as long as it looks nice,

Similarly Hodinkee featured a Movado 35mm, 12mm thick,

Also ok with single white colour,

(find example image)

Worse case ok with 3,6 but it has to be very nice like the Hamilton Intra-Matic (but vintage size in 36mm),


TBD36mm to 38mm

36mm (ideal) to 38mm 3,6,9 Panda Chronograph.

No date preferred.
