Watch of the day (WOTD)

What's my wrist-wear choice for today?


My Flavor Of The Day

Omega, Geneve - Dynamic, with Racing Dial.

For Friday, and our first full day away from the daily grind, my WOTD choice, is the vintage, Omega, Geneve - Dynamic. This piece is most definitely one of my vintage homeruns, as I have enjoyed wearing this timepiece much more than I would have originally imagined.


The beauty of this watch, starts with the racing dial, as noted by the checkered chapter ring. This dial is so hot, Omega has resurrected it numerous times for various Speedmaster models throughout the years. As the wearer, I enjoy looking at the aesthetics of this timepiece. I was hesitant about the case size, at first, but the more oval case design, gives the perception of a larger footprint on the wrist. While I never fish around for compliments on any timepiece I wear, this Omega is easily my most sought-after timepiece, by other admiring collectors, so that speaks for something.


If I wasn't bitten by the vintage bug before this piece, I most certainly am now, and have followed this piece up with vintage examples from King Seiko and Zenith. The vintage wing of my collection, remains a work in progress, but so far, so good.


Pairing the Geneve - Dynamic today, with a custom-crafted bracelet, designed by Beads By Gonzo, serving as the perfect, color-coordinated drafting partner. Making my Wrist-Game today, fast, on and off the track!
