What are you hearing?

I still have an Omega and it is a fine watch.


Have a couple of friends that have purchased Omegas recently, and both have had a lot of problems with their watches. Also, a watchmaker friend says that the quality has gone downhill recently. 3 random opinions, but I generally respect all 3 when it comes to watches, so it's been giving me pause, even though I'm pretty sure I'll bite the bullet come tax refund time.

Interesting. I'm trying to think. I guess mine is 10-15 years old.

Someone that gives the government their money interest-free for a year before they get it back. Big Grin


Don't even get me started this year. I double paid my payroll taxes this year because I switched jobs (not of my own volition). Made an even larger interest-free loan to the komissars this year than usual. I don't really mind though since they're so responsible with my money and treat it like they earned it themselves.

I'd love to help, but I've been reminded many times I don't know sh*t from shinola.

I don't know how one could by anything named Shinola unless it's a shoe polish--too much association with that saying.

Glenn, I have no experience. Looks like they are trying to pick up where Hamilton was both in style and being American made prior to 1984 when Swatch took Hamilton out.

Shinola are also all quartz movement so they will be very affordable.

Please post if you buy one.

I bought one about six months ago and have had no problems with the watch.


We might want to test the watch out a skosh more than six months before recommending. Wink
