Old Omegas will never go out of style (IMHO).

Huh - someone woke me up.

One tends to improve with age - if not me - then 'Mort's Moldy Oldies'

Great review of a classic Omega - have a couple of vintages myself passed down from deceased family members ...

Keep 'em coming my friend ... great knowledge and entertainment!!!

Dear Mort,

You did it again! How dare you? Thanks for that beautiful write-up. It's always a pleasure reading your texts. Keep 'em coming!

... and enjoy wearing your Omega whilst driving that red Merc of yours (?).

These are always both entertaining and informative. Omega is and always has been my favorite watch brand. I've owned more Omegas than any brand save Seiko. They just know how to make a beautiful and high quality watch. Thanks for sharing, oh deceased one!

Thanks so much, James; you're always very kind to me in your comments! And that is in fact my little red Daimler baby, though she is but a lowly C240, bought brand new back in 2003, and still the absolute apple of my eye, lo these 13 years later, and after more than a couple changes to the Benz C Class design. Even after I pick up my new SLK roadster next year, I still plan on keeping my sweet "Red," as I call her...she's still my girl!

Excusez-moi de continuer de plus en plus sur mon amour, "Rouge". Même après 13 ans, elle a encore mon pouls ... ah, les joies du vrai amour!

Thank you very much, sir; this deceased fellow salutes thee as a pillar among the mere living souls around thee! (Hmmm...I must be feeling very biblical today; I haven't used so many "thee's" since Catholic Skool... )
