Congrats on your Seamaster! I was in the same boat. Had I been able to walk into a store and buy a white dial Rolex Explorer II out of the case I would have done it. I might have even waited a short time for one to come in. But time was of the essence when it came to making a purchase, and I've always admired Omega watches on their own merits. Plus, I'm really turned off by the current situation with Rolex. I ended up purchasing one of my other dream watches, and I don't regret it one bit. Happy to be an Omega man (insert Charlton Heston joke here).
