Vintage Omega

Watches have always fascinated me, even at a very young age. Case in point, this vintage Omega watch that I bought when I was in the fifth or sixth grade. I unearthed it at an antique expedition (aka my mom shopping for antiques) and the price was just right for an automatic Omega. Not too cheap, not too expensive, and most importantly, I had enough money to pay for it.

I had it authenticated later on and turns out it's the real deal and I found out it's from the 1950's. After wearing it for a very limited number of times, I decided to change the bracelet to a leather strap last month when I went home to Manila.
