OF, what a lucky lady. Very nice gift, Sir. Is that the mid-size quartz AT? Gorgeous gray in those shots. Congrats on the watch, and the graduation. Hope she does well on the bar.


Leonard, I still can't see your photos. Bummer. It's because I can't access the photo hosting site you use from my location within China. Anyway, I hope you're enjoying your new AT!


Here's my Raily's case back. I just love to just stop and stare at it during a down time.


Nice! We don't see enough of the backs of these watches. Though the 8500 is even more beautiful, the 2500 and its RM versions are also very nicely finished movements. |>

This thread is coming along nicely! Please keep the photos coming. :-!

Even if you feel you've posted your AT/RM photos many times before in the past, please post them up here just once more. This thread is really turning out to be a valuable resource thread. Just think back to when you were researching these watches; it would have been great to be able to see so many versions (and the very creative photographs of them) all together in one place. ;-)

Nevermind... I found a prior thread with the same photo stating it was the 36mm!

Is that the 36mm Explorer? It does not look that much smaller than the AT. I tried on the 39mm and it was very nice, but the size just did not seem relative to the details of the watch. Maybe due to the smaller version being so proportionate.

Yeah, a few people have an issue with the proportionately small hands on the new Explorer. Personally, I don't but I still prefer the older model.
Can I ask you where you saw my photo? Was it in one of my posts?

For me, there is something extraordinarily captivating with these applied Logos.
For a brand of its quality, I do not understand why all the Omega models do not have them. (Any ideas? Surely not cost!)
My only applied logo, my Seamaster PO, initially opened my eyes to this aesthetically beautiful appliqué, and I'd go as far to say that it could be a major determining factor on what Omegas' I consider in the future. Oh no, (I mean... OH YES!), a credit for the AT, and it only a matter of time, tho regretfully, money also.
A great reference thread Dixon, well done.

I totally agree, Mark. I also love the applied Omega logo. The great thing about the Aqua Terra is that the "OMEGA" word mark is also applied. I'll not speculate here as to why some watches have it and some do not. I believe there are whole threads dedicated to that discussion already. Whatever the reason, I, like you, lament the fact that many modern models lack this small but impactful detail. Most would probably agree that the Speedy Pro would be even more covetable if it still had its applied logo.

And, thanks for the kind words. We've collectively made this a great resource thread. The quality of photos posted here has been consistently very high. Let's see if we can't get some more members to post! :-!

Hi Dixan,

I was always was under the impression that the applied "Omega" logo was reserved for chronometers. Of course, since not all Omega chronometers have the applied logo kind of skews that, but I am pretty sure that all that do are, in fact, chronometers.

Interesting theory, WW, but unfortunately I don't think it holds water. These two quartz models also have the applied logo, as did the original AT quartz, and many others, I'm sure.

OMEGA Watches: Seamaster 300 M Quartz - Steel on steel - 2221.80.00

OMEGA Watches: Seamaster Aqua Terra Quartz - Steel on steel - 231.10.39.61.02.001

I think it just comes down to individual designs. They could just make it standard across the board, but some models actually benefit from not having an applied logo, or in other words, they look better with a printed logo. The original SMP Bond, the 2531.80 is a good example of such a watch.

I'm wondering if we can get some of the older, possibly ever so slightly jaded (in terms of posting old photos of old watches) members to contribute? ;-)

KatGirl, Fr. John, Teeritz, and many others have had, or still have, so many cool ATs and RMs, and so many fantastic photos of them. If some of you guys would kindly contribute, we could continue making what is turning out to be a nice, solid resource thread for all future researchers.

Post 'em if you got 'em! :-!
