One of The Knife’s most frequently visited posts is a short piece on the Omega Marine Chronometer, and I’m lucky enough to have got one. Lots of seventies chic geeks and watch nuts seem to be interested.
Somewhat amazingly, there’s been a nice one on eBay for a cool £9,750. Not likely in these times
of austerity. Of more interest is essentially the same watch, although geeks might disagree, but in 18K gold. Quite extraordinary, and very rare, and also on eBay for the still painful price (and counting – it’s an auction) of about £5,500**. Not to everyone’s taste, I would accept, but WAY better than the similarly priced new Rolexes, of various kinds. When it gets sold, the pictures should still be available here.
Might have to sell one of the kids.
** Final price £7700, 42 bids. Not bad frankly.
