I have been lurking for a while and have much enjoyed reading through the archives of this most interesting Forum. My thanks to all the participants. Also, a special thanks to Keith Downing and John Rochowicz for sharing their excellent Omega AD's. I have just completed my order of a De Ville 4841.31.32 (Steel on leather chronograph) and a Seamaster 2535.80.00 (GMT). I look forward to receiving these two beautiful watches.
The discussion on the Forum regarding movements, where they originate, whether watches are made from in-house parts, etc, are very interesting. Here is a link to an article that provides a little different perspective on the desirablility of components being made in-house, how the luxury Swiss watch market developed and where it seems to be headed. It seems to me that Omega is in a good position. For those who have already read this article, my apologies for directing you to it again.
