This is an Omega Chronometer with two big buttons, Bold design with very high contrast of the two Dials, Arabic Number wiht large hands, Automatic, Limited edition. One of the most beautiful Omega as recent production.
Rolex is a kind of well-accpeted brand name in Hong Kong as a Watch, and this kind of watch can maintain certain kind of High quality. Rolex does not change much in the design, they are not out-dated as they have a very unique line of model n the past 50 years. Rolex is the only one comoany that is in the 100 best brands ranked at 77. They are not hand make in the scale of Patek Philippe, not as Elegant as Cartier design.
There is a lot special patent and design feature no one has for watches. Most of the Oyster series are Swiss Official certified Chronometers! The only company that produce most of the Chronmeters in Switzerland. This is engraved on te dial of your oyster and come with a red seal when you purchase this piece of watch. People says that Watch does not need to be accurate. I say watch basic requirement is to be accurate...if not, do not call it watch! Do you think Patek Phillipe is not accurate!? Very Accurate! They have a PPM of 50 or less. PPM stands for Part Per Millions, say if my Rolex is gaining 3 seconds a day, means that it has a PPM of 3/3600x24 x 1,000,000 = 34.72 PPM!
That is made with every tough requirement on the parts of each of the wheels, temperature compenstaion of the fly-wheel, and a pain taking adjustment on the 5 positions of the watch. This is no Fake watch of any kind can produce at this kind of precision! Some one told me that they can adjust the watch to be accurate on those Fake version, I tell you : Forget it! So I always say to myself, Rolex is value for Money!
This is what I involved in the design, fabrication as a gift for presenting to the the Trail Walker in one Company's Tenth Anniversary for Oxfam Trail Walker. An Hong Kong yearly Charity event held in third week of November this year! Trail Walker Snob
I bought this watch at one of the small watch shop in Kowloon City with HKD$1,080 in 1976. After ten years, I sold it to one of my best friend KM, KM now is the chief Engineering Officer in one of the Electronics Toy company in HK. He has been using this watch for many years.Omega had once produced the best watch in the 60's and 70's. You know that Omega was once more expensive than Rolex in the same level of watch type. But After 80's Rolex overtaken Omega in price and also quality.
The Hong Kong people had this slogan Man's Three Treasure: Rolex, Dupont and Montaught... These are the most common man's standard Accessory for those aged 25-50 in the 80's.But now, I think only Rolex remains its prestigious status so far. Kowloon City Snob
