I had two vintage favorites: Omega Flightmaster and the Marine Chronometer. The latter was way out of my price range way back when. I had a Flightmaster and sent it in for refurbishing after buying it used. It originally had yellow second hand and yellow sub dial hands and half yellow half red pusher buttons. Omega service center in Switzerland changed the second hands to red and the pushers had no color on them at all. I felt they changed the complete character of the watch and we failed to bond. It became the ugly, unwed, pregnant step-sister of my collection at that time and I traded it away for a DateJust.
