    Seems to be, yes. It's not taken any knocks as yet but I think it would shrug them off. I've had the caseback off, and the movement was secured in place very firmly indeed.

    It's styled after the Panerai submersible, which is a watch I am considering as a future purchase. However since that watch costs over £3.5k on the secondhand market I thought this watch was a good way of finding out if I like the style of it before buy the Panerai.

    Possibly, haven't tested it yet though. The caseback and gasket seem solid, not sure whether there's a gasket sealing the crown though so I probably won't be submerging this.

    VSA INOX black today. I have the Blue version as well. And incoming tomorrow the Green version will be here. Excellent watches. I'm not sure if I like the bright Red one yet or not so I'm not sure if I'll be getting the red version.

    I recently started wearing this Omega which I believe is from 1963-65. It surprises me with its ability to keep time after all these years.

    Mechanical watches are funny that way. They can seem to run perfectly on the outside.... while corroding away, or gears grinding due to lack of oil; on the inside. If it was recently serviced, you're good. Otherwise, it can stop out of the blue and cost an arm & a leg to get repaired.

    I helped it along to begin with, stuck it in a container with some vinegar soaked rag and boiled egg. It developed really nicely after that.
