Truth be told, this may be a unicorn.

It is listed on the Omega site as currently unavailable, i.e. contact a boutique to join the waiting list. And for all I know, it's discontinued or an as yet-to-be delivered model. Long story short, I am not on the Omega PR Christmas card list ; )

But I am discovering as I get older and keep writing this "bloggy-wog" that I am a bit contrarian. So it seems fitting that this (let's be honest) anomaly caught my eye. I have no doubt that it is not everybody's baby, but I kinda' dig it.

Here are the pertinents, straight from Biel/Bienne -
