Classic and a better buy...

I believe the current Omega styles are now very classic, but without being as static and unchanging as Rolex. Omega is not afraid to update their styles, but they are maintaining the classic nature of their watches by keeping any changes conservative and gradual.

Besides, even if you don't believe me -- the Rolex costs twice what the Omega does. So if you go with the Omega and ever tire of the GMT, you will have saved enough money versus buying the Rolex to buy *another* Omega later!
