Is there a forum section on other brands?
Like this on my wrist today: (how do you get rid of the smaller picture. I'm monkeying with setting and can't find where to edit the post!!??)

I love Fortis, it's the one brand I've always liked but never owned. I think it's because you just don't see many on peoples wrists - a bit like Bremont I suppose..

To solve the picture thumbnail issue, you need to host the picture in PhotoBucket or similar and post the [IMG] link in to the text box under the 'insert image' button. If you get stuck, let me know.

3414Fortis is a great watch, very tool-like and reasonably priced. (Compared with Bremont)
I was able to get a limited edition Operation Enduring Freedom Fortis for my son when he returned from Afghanistan. Very nice fit and finish.

I like watches with great legibility in low light, that's why most of my watches have a black dial with white hands and/or lots of lume.

That strap looks awesome! Thinking about a Stone Creek strap for a Fifty Fathoms. How do you like it?

Jeanna does a spectacular job but there is a bit of a wait. The quality and attention to detail is superb. I have two. Am elated with both. Tell her Jim says hello.

I agree with this "I love Fortis, it's the one brand I've always liked but never owned."

Just bought my first Omega - Speedmaster Apollo 17 - 45th Anniversary. A beautiful watch - but will they come collectable as the numbers manufactured are high? 1972 in this case - the date the last person stepped on the moon.

I have always loved the Moon Watches! I wish I would have bought one instead of the P.O. that I bought! I think they will soar when the last moon walker passes! Just look at what happened to the Daytona when Steve McQueen’s watch sold for $15 million! Cheers Jim

Tricky one. The Speedmaster seems to have a knack of being able to 'become' collectable despite high production runs - I'm thinking the Silver Snoopy (1970pcs) and the Speedy Tuesday (2012pcs). My suspicions are, though, that it's more a supply and demand induced price rise than an actually worth it one. Time will tell, though.

It could well do. As I'm sure you know Jim, the Omega 45th Anniversary is the 'Tribute to Gene Cernan' - the last man on the Moon - who died early last year.

Like Jake says itís a tricky one. I donít think it will increase in value like the Snoopy or the ST but would think it will at least hold itís value if not a slight increase.

Double check your box as there is a typo on some of them. See pic, wording should say man kind but says man king. Omega are sending replacements out and letting customers keep the old box.

Ha, "manking"! I seem to always mistakenly type "g" in place of my "d" and vice versa. Luckily for me I usually get a red squiggly line underneath my typos.

Speaking of Snoopy...

Really appreciate those views, its what I expected, but reassuring. Also, Chunkythebulldog will check when arrives in the next three days and post up accordingly - thanks.

Regarding the Silver Snoopy, I am not an expert on Omega, I am guessing these have been sold for some while now?

Lovely. I really, really, like that watch - especially the luminous Snoopy!

Hi David, I haven’t got one but a friend has and he spotted the typo.
Nappy New Year, hope you’re enjoying being a granddad.

Guys - as you are the experts should I ask for a box change or not worry that I have the miss spelled manking? :)

I'm far from an expert but I wouldn't let the typo worry me in the slightest. First thing I do when I get a new watch is wear the watch and put the box in a cupboard never to be seen again.

She's gorgeous and it's wonderful thanks Ian and the good thing is I haven't had to change a nappy yet! I just hope that Freya turns out as sweet as your Meadow!
