Excellent.

Is the LB2 titanium?


No, it's steel.

Great watch. It has the quick change strap right? that means you need to go here ABP Paris to start stocking up... Devilish devilishly addictive (and the best straps I know of - I've bought 4-5 for there so far and they've all been gorgeous).

I love the French. The website is closed until August 28 for vacation.

You can still go to the top right and click the "to order" box and then click on "leather and colour" to make your own strap. They just won't respond to your order or make it until the end of the month.

You can also look at their gallery here: watch straps My wife has the roasted marshmallow toad like on the Master Geographic and a red Ostrich leg done like the Luminor Panerai near the bottom for my (now her) Pam111. My Reverso has a "special tanning" brown/nearly black alligator, the Chopard a black toad and my old Pam127 had a special tanning horned alligator. I covet their shargreen (especially the non-dyed one on the reverso).

CSM -
I believe that you'll find that you can still peruse the site and actually place an order if you wish. It just won't be given attention until August 29 and you won't receive the item until late-September.

Not soooo bad Smile

Several, but the Luminor 1950 GMT series is one that interests me a lot.


V, did you make the jump yet?



I didn't jump the gun YET...

Anyone know if the prices would be cheaper in Italy?
KSC02 and Rob, I was just joking. Think that phrase is a literal translation of the French site.

And Rob, I really didn't need to know about that site. My wife is sufficiently PO'd about the watch - can't wait to see what she does when new straps start arriving. Big Grin

Nice site and, until now, completely unknown to me.
Thanks for sharing this, Rob.


The most wicked part is, if you get a small group of I believe 5? or more who are buying at least one strap each the head craftsman will fly to your location with samples and do the measurements etc in person.

That would make for a nice off-line... Some wine, some exotic leather, watches...

Tell her it's a gift to yourself for all the pain you're about to go through... I would duck after saying it (and maybe have diamond earrings on hand), but the look would be priceless.

The little one arrived by way of C-section. I told her that she didn't need a push present due to the section - luckily she was still under the anesthetic when I said it.

Congratulations!
Congrats CSM. That is awesome! I hope everyone is doing well. Welcome to the club. (no drinking (heavy at least), sleepless nights, bottles, taking a minimum of 2-3 bags of stuff everywhere you go even though you don't know what they are for, sleepless nights, diapers, oh ya did i mention sleepless nights....)

I need a push present.
got my eye on a nice radiomir, now I just need to pull that trigger!

I'm just ranting. Everyday is more wonderful than the previous because of mine. They really make life special.

When I was looking at ABP paris's new site they have the following for sale if you're looking for a Radomir. Great price for a really amazing watch.
Pam214

And I second the sleepless nights, wackload of superfluous stuff always needed, sleepness nights and the most wonderful and stress reducing thing to come home to every night. Everything else just melts away.

CSM, give him some time.

Rob, thanks for another site with unique stuff I like
My 4 1/2 yr. old son recently learned how to tell time on a real clock. So last weekend he and I went out and put a new band on my old stainless swiss army watch that I wore for 15 years. Its the first thing on in the morning and the last thing off at night. He loves it and it looks just like Dada's. It makes him look like such a little man with that big old shiny thing on his wrist. He knows when he turns 21 or gets out of college (don't want him pawning it for beer $) he'll get my Omega.

I've kicked around the idea of picking up a vintage Omega off and on the past few years. Assuming the watch has been recently reconditioned by a reputable individual how do these general hold up? Specifically accuracy in keeping time. Keeping accurate time will always be my #1 requirement of any time piece I own. It does me no good to look at my watch and it to be off by 2-3 minutes.
I'm partial to Omegas and that is why I asked about them specifically.

Snipes, what watches do you own currently.

I do not recall us talking watches in Atlanta.

Been sporting an Omega Seamaster for the past 6 years. I've always been a one watch kind of guy, but I've had the itch to add a more refined / elegant watch to mix it up on occasion.

I've got a 1960 Seamaster with a 552 movement in it that keeps impeccable time. Just make sure you do your research - the omega website has a database for checking movements vs. years and serial #'s vs. year of production that is helpful.

Snipes, no man should be limited to just 1 watch... That's like having only 1 wine in your cellar.

Thanks for the insight vinoevelo. This is what I hoped.

I do recall having a bit of watch envy when we met.
Everyone that owns the Omega Speedmaster Pro should wear it tomorrow in honor of Neil Armstrong.

It is the only watch ever to be worn on the moon, and also played a key role on Apollo 13 and their survival.

excellent suggestion in honor of Neal. I like that. If I had one I would.

Anybody going to snatch this one up?

And it's pre-worn no less.

I wore my AP star wheel tonight to a 40th anniversary, and it's still the favourite of all my watches.

I will wear my Omega Seamaster tomorrow as a tribute. Nice touch bro.
