I was wondering why some Omegas I see have a small paper operating instruction booklet and some have a nice red hardcover bound operating instruction book. Why is this? Is this because of the year or any other reason? Thanks

About ten years ago, Omega decided to combine instructions for all the watches using a multitude of languages rather than producing individual booklets for each watch and each country.

Fair enough, but, and Omega is no more guilty of this than anyone else, why do we end up with these huge books with so little infowe can actually use? It would be nice to have a "Speedmaster Professional" book that dealt ONLY with that watch, maybe afew pictures too! And a "Planet Ocean", booklet, an "Aqua Terra" book and so on.

Its been done by camera (closest product I could come up with) companies for years and makes for an easy, excellent reference and great reading once the camera becomes "vintage".

I think they are just being cheap and it looks it.
