    http://clockmaker.com.au/rolex_serial_numbers.html - scroll down to the Omega section. They stopped publishing their serial #'s around 2011 to help counter counterfeits, so this goes up through then. It's based on the first 2 #'s of the serial #. Took me a while to find this. Dug through dozens of WUS and Omega forum posts until someone referenced this table. It's really the only one that goes up through 2011, as most other ones out there stop around 2008.

      What watch I wore today

      Here is my everyday watch for the past 15 years or so, a Longines chronograph. At 35mm, it is a normal-sized watch!

        That's a pretty cool piece!

          Ah, I did find that link in my search but didn't know how to read it until your explanation. It says my 2531 was manufactured in 2006. I didn't realize it was still being made that late. Mine doesn't have the 'anti-counterfeit' globe on it but I read that towards the end Omega was just trying to use up all their parts so some of the later ones could have had older case backs on them.

            A 35mm square watch has the same look, I think, as a round watch that is 38 or 40mm in diameter...which is about he sweet spot for most of us. Very nice! It's unique, but very classy.

              2006 was around the year that they switched to my model as the successor. Sounds like they probably made that one up until that point.

                Nothing wrong with this. I'm the same way. I've found a couple of wheelhouse watches that fit my needs and tastes and I rock 'em day in and day out. No shame man, no shame at all.

                  All this Omega talk made me break out the Speedmaster for a change. I do love this watch.

                    That may be my next purchase.

                        Sweet. That's on my bucket list. Almost had one a few years ago from a friend who sadly no longer works for Omega.

                              Were you hoping to get a deal from your buddy at Omega? If you are comfortable going the used market there are plenty of good deals to be had.

                              Thanks! That was one of my primary criteria when I was doing my search for a Speedmaster.

                              1990. I knew when I was looking for a Speedmaster that I wanted on where tritium had been applied to the markers. I think Omega stopped with the tritium in 1997, so I was focusing my efforts on watches in watches prior to then. I had really wanted a birth year watch, but the price for me was prohibitive. Or at least more than I was willing to spend at any rate. That said, I' m quite happy with my purchase.

                                Still running with the Speedmaster.
