    I've seen it with the white strap, OMFG, makes the watch pop even more, not that it needs it. Red for Miami, White for the Hamptons. ;)

    Today and for the next few days I’ll be sporting this Omega Constellation that belongs to the father of a friend. She asked me to see if I could get it working again as the date wasn’t changing, it was difficult to adjust the time, etc. Bench checks say I’ve got it going. Time to make sure it keeps behaving on the wrist.

    The Moonswatch are quartz. The Blancpain Swatch is mechanical movement. they are all very light and made of plastic... they are just cool easy wearing casual - work around the house watches.

    Coincidentally I’ve been looking for a Constellation C-shape day and date. Good luck with the repair. I’m sure it’ll be appreciated! Does that Connie have lumed hands?

    did you disassemble, clean and oil the watch?... its pretty simple to on this vintage Omega... but the screws are super tiny, and letting down the main spring is tricky... but otherwise they are basic to work on.

    There is a very small line of line down the center of the hour and minute hands, yes.

    I have not done any cleaning yet. If it keeps running for the next day or two I feel confident that I found the issue (the date wheel was misaligned) and then will do a full clean, oil, and time adjust.

    What was retail on the Blancpain collabs? Also $375 or more? I think one might be fun to knock around in, but looks like those are sold out in the retail stores.

    Haven't posted in ages. Got this yesterday for Father's day. I bought it for myself because I have no kids. I got the GF the purple "Laser tag" version of this.
