Watch of the day (WOTD)

What's my wrist-wear choice for today?


My Flavor Of The Day

Omega, Geneve - Dynamic, with Racing Dial.

Tuesday finds me going vintage, with the Omega, Geneve - Dynamic. This piece is just a fun watch to wear, and I don't know if I'm more enamored with the beauty of the racing dial, or the fact that it still keeps spot-on time, after so many decades.


With a 40mm case diameter (including the crown), this piece represents the lowest-end of my wearability scale. But admittedly it looks amazing on the wrist. Unfortunately, not entertaining timepieces less than 38mm in case diameter, will limit the pool of wonderful, available vintage timepieces for me to possibly add to my collection; and that truly is a loss for me.


For a vintage piece, this Omega is in excellent shape, which I think is another big part of its allure for me; a vintage watch, that doesn't have the usual, obvious distress markings and battle scars, of a piece that's seen a lot of use through the years. The timepiece, not being manufactured to the larger specifications of modern-day designs, is as light as a feather, affording extreme comfort on the wrist. If I had to narrow my collection down to 5 timepieces only, this Omega would most certainly make the cut.


Pairing the Geneve - Dynamic, with a custom bracelet, crafted by Beads By Gonzo, offering the perfect complement to the timepiece, making my Wrist Game today, a true dynamic duo.
