      I was looking for an affordable homage to the Seamaster 007 watch that Omega built for the movie..and I stumbled on this


      I bought one..recv’d it 3 days ago,..and I am more than a little impressed.

      The PT5000 movement is based off of the venerable ETA2824-2,..and the finish is nice.

      They also took one to Glashutte a couple of years ago, and recv’d a chronometer rating.

      It has a real domed sapphire crystal, C3 luminous on the hands and dial ( and it lasts all night ! )

      Working Helium release valve and a tested 300m /1000 ft rating.

      It sits very nice on the wrist, and the mesh band is comfortable

      All for under $300 US.

      I’ve attached a timegraph reading from this morning. This is pretty much what I get each day.

      Time will tell how robust the movement is..but for me it’s a keeper.

      Just had to share…I think that they are getting better each year.



        That’s a beautiful watch Randy!

        Did a little digging around and found that the PT5000 is getting some amazing reviews. You can even source parts when needed! Watch out Switzerland.



          Thanks Bob,

          I can’t keep staring at it LOL !

          Yes,..I think that at least some of the manufacturers there are getting very competent.
