    Possibly the most desirable franken Omega I've ever seen!

    What were they thinking?

    If only they's kept the original dial...

    That said, it still looks pretty cool!

    40mm, it would probably sit quite handsomely on the wrist....

    Oh yes, and as it is one of the cases that Omega pulled design cues from when making the SMP, (just look at that shrouded crown, look familiar?) It seems oddly coherent as a franken.

    It does indeed, the wave dial doesn't look out of place at all, I even quite like the hands, I couldn't bring myself to part with nearly seven hundred quid for it mind you....

    Nope. But by the time it's been around the ebay circuit a few times...

    Looks like a great find for someone. I agree, it is very unique.

    It's not horrible, but I like the original version better.
