Omega Speedmaster 176.0012

So I missed my Lemania 5100 powered Heuer 510.501 and recent searches for a replacement proved fruitless.
Expanding the search to other brands turned up little of interest - all way overpriced and dodgy looking.
I then discovered this Omega - same movement but rebranded the Omega Cal 1045.
I really like it and for a fraction of the cost of the Porsche Design , Sinn or Tutima out there it's a bargain :-)
Sure, the grain maybe isn't as starburst as it could be, but who cares...I plan to swap the day disc for a French one and...little else really, for now anyway.
It's also been pointed out that mega cool Porsche guy, Magnus Walker, also sports this model :-)
Check it out here
And if that's not cool enough for you, check out his Urban Outlaw video for some cracking Porsches.

Autavia 11630 black subdials

Swapped the dial on this one yesterday :-)
This is the latest incarnation of my tinkering watch.
It started life as a 11630 with a Viceroy dial and hands.
Several regenerations later and I'm happy with this setup - for a while anyway :-)
