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.
I can’t keep staring at it LOL !
Yes,..I think that at least some of the manufacturers there are getting very competent.
