Re: Seamaster GMT is Timeless.

For the quality of the watch at the price Omega has them for is a plus. Another plus is the fact that it's an Omega. I believe the Seamaster line today, compared to the Vintage Seamasters that look like the Pie Pan faces of the Constellation of the 50's and 60's have reached their pinnacle of design. It is a modern classic and now it gives the watch a look of "Omega". Vintage watches, to me, typically look like older constellations, Devilles, older Longines, Tissots, and LeCoulters. IOW, they all have that Pie Pan vintage look, kind of like the new Co-axial Deville design. Vintage Rolex also has some models that look like Pie Pan faces/case. Look at Rolex today, they have 'found' their design as attractive and recognizable. I believe that Omega has 'found' that mystique in design today too. In my opinion, all OMEGA designs today signify the look of OMEGA and its particular collection. Best wishes, Louis
