Great just keeps getting better. I'm a big fan of collection spans the gamut. My first mechanical watch purchase was a Speedmaster auto (the mini-Moonwatch). My first vintage watch purchase was a cal. 30T2 British military piece...I soon followed that up with a beautiful cal. 564 piepan Connie and then I knew I had the disease.

Before I knew it, I had acquired two pre-moon Speedmaster Pros (one cal. 321 and one cal. 861). I came across your original Seamaster Pro site, did my research, and so my most recent purchase was a Bond Seamaster Pro, that really has become one of my favorite everyday timepieces.

Like others have said, I think Omega does an excellent job of delivering value for the price, and I think other smaller manufacturers, like Sinn, Zenith and Fortis, have been successful with this strategy as well.

Thanks again, Derek...

Best regards,
