OP39

Post by Furball » Sun Nov 04, 2018 2:07 pm

My 36mm Datejust had that 'Mad Men' cool about it, but the silver hands on the silver dial was hard to read sometimes and it's days were numbered. I'd been saving up for an Omega Aqua Terra almost from the day I bought the Datejust. But Rolex just released the white face version of the 39mm Oyster Perpetual and I honestly couldn't decide between the Aqua Terra and the OP39. I found a shop in Prague that had them both so I could finally compare them side by side, and the Rolex won. The Omega is a better watch on paper: better finishing, date display, prettier dial, incredible new movement, much cheaper... but the Rolex is slightly sleeker and I just love it's simplicity, and in the end it came down to the emotional response I got whenever I slipped the Rolex on. It's just such a cool watch, and it's got this feel of 'quality' that no other watch I've ever worn had. So I went to Portland and bought one. Brand new!

So, that's it. I sold the Datejust. I still have the Omega Seamaster diver, and now this OP, and I'm done.
