@Rami id be okay with a sea master... but there is an allure to a vintage date just IMHO
I agree whole heartedly,

here is one I prepared earlier

Let me show you this.


I sold my Pepsi gmt. It was nice, but a bit flimsier than I want. It did teach me that I am not into vintage watches. Got my money back. Which for 5 years of constant use is an excellent value proposition. Put my name up for a Batti but not holding my breath.

52yrs. It's a 145.012-67 cal. 321 from 1968.
Very nice!

A couple of years after what would be my birth year (see if you can guess what that would be)

I picked up a 2001 a couple of years back (see here) as that is my son's birth year. Now if I stumbled across a vintage Omega with an 'Extract from Archives' indicating production on my birthday - I'd be onto it like a shot!

Hi @Mark1966 , are you after exact date or just year? FYI noticed Chrono24 has a filter for watches with original papers
https://www.chrono24.com.au/search/...ndex=true&sortorder=11&specials=104&year=1966
Thanks, I have seen those and the filter, unfortunately it doesn't seem to catch the Omegas where the original papers are not there but an "Extract from Archives' has been obtained from Omega indicating the date of manufacture. Some have it mentioned in the title and search-able, eg https://www.chrono24.com.au/omega/s...ial-extract-from-the-archives--id13204977.htm, other just have in the pics. I'm hoping these will be cheaper than the ones with full papers!
