Splitting Time Between Two Masters – Part I: The Omega Seamaster Professional 300 Meter GMT – ‘You Only Live Twice’
Most of the readers of Monochrome-Watches.com will be able to identify with this scenario: you buy a watch… wear it for a bit. Along comes a character offering you (very nearly) what you paid for it. So out the door it goes. Regret sets in. Suddenly you find yourself trawling through internet auctions looking to get one just like it. I had this experience with an Omega Seamaster Professional 300M GMT. I bought the watch for it’s “Bond” good-looks and timezone shifting functionality – but I sold it for enough money to last me an afternoon! And then I wanted it back! When you buy a ‘Bond’ watch you always think of your favorite Bond movie.
