    I'm slowly coming to the same conclusion. Even simple stuff like USB leads can be of inferior quality that fails within a few weeks.
    A branded phone or watch ? No chance.

    Back to the OP, other end of the spectrum of watches. I made the mistake to wear my watch in a Jacuzzi (or rather just forgot to take it off), where water got inside and it stopped working.

    Then I made another mistake (that was on my second ? holiday to Thailand, now I am wiser) to buy a new watch at Patpong night market for 250 Baht (reduced from 400 ?, they sell for 100 elsewhere), and that watch started disintegrating days later, while I was still in Thailand. You can't even change the battery because the watch's lifetime is shorter than the battery's.

    If you look at current reviews of Omega watches you will find the new ones are not as highly rated.
    The new Owners have not kept up with the competition.
    But Scotty's 1970 would be a gem!! Make him an offer!!!

    I'm curious. What's so special about an Omega watch - whichever wrist it's worn on? If it was a Patek Philippe or a Chopard I guess I'd understand, but an Omega? Are they that special?

    Patek Philippe is in a league of it's own, as is Rolex. Omega is "special" only because they have a "name" and reputation which they have to maintain, so what you get is a watch that is highly-accurate and beautifully made out of high end materials. That's what you pay for.

    Their connection to the moon landings, Jacques Cousteau and the Olympics is important to some, but not to me. I just like the design of the Seamaster, although I'm not a diver as such -the only diving I do is between guys' legs.

    I could by a similar design from, say, Timex but it's not the same. Quality costs money.

    I bought a 200B watch last time I was in Thailand, at the stalls leading down from BT to Sunee (on the BT side)- because I liked the face (I pick my boys the same way )

    Anyhow - the strap was a couple of inches short, only fastened at the second last hole and accordingly had started to disintegrate within a few days and the battery lasted about a month.

    I've since replaced the battery (which accounted for 50% of the cost of the watch) and I'll probably get a new strap fitted which will account for 100% of the original cost of the watch.

    Buying stuff that's dirt cheap, looks good, but is absolutely shit is an integral part of any trip to Thailand.

    The boys are pretty cheap, look super bloody good but are absolutely top drawer. By the way Scottish, have you discussed the commission you'll undoubtedly pay Surfcrest for selling merchandise on his website? Cue thunder like fury over The Forth of Firth. Haha. I would have thought 25 per cent was reasonable.

    Well since nothing has been sold then I don't see how commission could be due - but Surfy could issue a bill for something we are all very familar with in Thailand anyway......

    ..... an insertion fee
