    Omega
    Dear all, I have never paid much attention to Omega, mainly because the watch brand has never really caught my attention. The only watch that I've ever really looked at was the Omega Speedmaster Professional, but it just didn't appeal to my tastes, not to mention the costs of the watch. In an...
