Sentimental guitar music is brutally cheesy

N.I ADDICTIVE GUY says:

Carlos Almendárez says:

I really enjoyed hearing about how he associates certain watches with life events.

Brittania says:

Lovely guy and stories. Nice collection. I have that particular JB Omega (Pierce Brosnan era) – lovely robust time piece that has been with me over 10 years.

Tomasina Covell says:

Aww… had a whiskey too, and it brought a tear to my eye as Bill was a good man to you, and deep.

Chuck Stark says:

“Talking Watches” anyone?

RolexKings RolexKings says:

James Bond’s actual choice is a Rolex – Omega got in for commercial reasons. I like Omega though.

Robert Zimerman says:

I enjoy this more than Hodinkees talking watches…

V Dan says:

Touching journey

stockegsix says:

Nice collection man. The Omega 2531.80 was my first grail as well.

Ryan Jones says:

Love all the bracelets! No straps!

Abdul Rahman Malik says:

Andrew Hutchinson says:

Such a good video!

Divano Amorim Silva says:

Really nice! Thanks, guys!

golforfishing says:

I asked a dealer if they could verify authenticity of a Seamaster and he said they don’t authenticate anymore because the counterfeits have gotten so good!

shae voyce says:

loving these stories.

Jacob Palmer says:

I see the SubC on the table. At the end of the day, this “Omega collector” couldn’t resist the allure of the crown.

Bright Jade says:

Nice collection !

maninthecab says:

“Omega watch collector” but happy to include Rolex and Accutron in his memories , it’s great to see someone not bound by fanaticism about one brand .

Justin Register says:

Great video. Nick seems like a humble, down to earth guy. Fantastic collection!

Randy Crosse says:

one of the best videos and stories I’ve heard by far, congratulations and I also had the same feelings as a kid for omega.

Michael Luce says:

great stories + watches!

MrHotass81 says:

Have u ever hearded of a jfk commemorative omgea

Jacob Palmer says:

the other hilarious thing about this guy is that when he was strapped for cash and had to sell a watch, he chose to keep the Rolex Submariner and sell the Planet Ocean that had so many memories for him. LOL! so embarrassing for Omega fans.

stefa4k0 says:

ive always found metal bracelets uninspiring and boring

Nick B says:

Came here after watching the video of the 17 year old trust-fund watch collector — how refreshing. A passionate, sentimental collector.

Mike C says:

Great work, Nick!

guitrich says:

Nice narration Zidane 🙂 Ricky T.

matajsz74 says:

Can you please review some vintage Omega watch like Seamaster Cosmic/ Geneve? There is no review on vitage watches but there is many on the market.

itsKibble Talks Watches says:

Beautiful collection with an awesome story behind it 🙂

Marc Travis says:

Cool video and nice collection, but that’s not an interview. 🙂

Enjoyed your video! Very inspirational and love your passion for omega watches!

Omega Box says:

peleti027 says:

Not snob at all. Nice, humble… Sensible approach to watches!! Although many on the table are not my cup of tea. Thanks 4 uploading.

Shaun Nalamlieng says:

Fantastic, very humbling review.

mario siaven says:

Very very interesting story that shows the passion of a true collector

Watch Geek says:

I loved the video, and great to learn he is a fellow WUS member although I stick to the more affordable section of the forum 🙂
Also love his appreciation of other brands other than Omega

Matt Stevens says:

Nice guy. True fan. I have the 2500 Planet Ocean. Wear it every day.

Fadds says:

I stopped watching at 1:19 … too nerdy

Jim Street says:

Hey Nick, what a fantastic video! Questions:

Did you buy all of the watches featured in this video, pre-owned?
When you take off your watch, do you rest it on its side or face-up (I’ve heard this is the better way).
Have any of the watches been serviced?

blopcant says:

Reference of the second one starting from left at 1:08?? thanks !
