  1. Sorry to bring up such an old thread, but I have a few questions. 1) Larry, you mentioned that this is a problem with the 3135. Is this issue most commonly seen on the 3135 or can it happen with other movements, too? 2) Would this issue cause the rotor to wobble? When I hold my 1675 and gently shake it, I feel, what I believe to be the rotor, wobbling (keep in mind, I am not rotating the watch to make the rotor spin). It feels and sounds as if the rotor is wobbling around the central point (i.e., the rotor axle). I have tried to replicate this with a new Rolex and I cannot replicate the feeling/sound. In fact, with the new Rolex, I don't hear anything. It's as if the movement/rotor is rock solid.
  2. Have you considered the 2254.50? It's a modern watch, but has that vintage look to it. IMO, of course...
  3. Yikes. All that orange is a bit gimicky.

    should i?

    I like the 42mm better. The 45.5mm is huge!
  5. I agree with a lot of what has been said about Omega. I applaud them for making a push to become a more respected and luxurious brand. Pulling out of jewelry stores and focusing on boutiques is certainly a step in the right direction, I think, and the quality and craftsmanship of the new models is certainly very, very good. 5 years ago, it wasn't very hard to get 25% off any Omega at an AD. That made the prices very attractive. Now, it may not be as easy, especially if you are buying from a boutique. Doesn't the 57 retail for $9k? That's steep, in my opinion. I don't know if I could pay that much for a Speedmaster. That's very close to Daytona territory. To be honest, I think Omega has a lot of questionable models that are not going to age well. As a part of the push to increase their brand image, I really wish Omega would stop with all of the limited edition models and wacky colors that they use and streamline their collection. If people are going to drop some serious coin on Omega, they should feel confident that it will still look good in 10, 20, 30+ years and not something that is trendy.
  6. The crown on my 2254.50 is firm, but easy enough to screw and unscrew.
  7. I saw in a video that Omega plans to make all of their coaxial movements antimagnetic in the near future. If Omega is going to do with with the AT line soon, what will become of the Bumblebee?
