    Lovely watch, I have a blue 1521 on a milanaise strap...

    Question for you , why do watch makers create a waterproof watch and then stick a leather strap on it ?

    Nice, love the black dial Omegas, they sell for big bucks though, practically everyone on 'Mad men' was wearing one!

    I was inspired to buy it partly as costume dressing for my daughter's uni degree fashion show at GSA, but also because I love it of course...

    Largely I guess because most waterproof watches, even divers don't see more water than a splash from the washing up bowl..?
