Response to Depends on what you want to portray...
Thanks for that - yes I agree, I will probably get the Omega, its just that the Optima is such a good looking watch!
With regards to Fighters of the period, both the Spitfire and Hurricane had 'seven day' dashboard mounted clocks in them - so called because you wound them up and they were supposed to keep going for seven days!!
Still wish that I could afford both watches...the Optima is £295 from a dealer with warranty whilst the Omega (marked with braod arrow on back, 6/b 159 and dated 1944) is £250 from a friend....
Were 6b/159's still being issued during 1944??
I give up with this one.....
