I love all things Omega Speedmaster, including the LCD quartz models from the late 1970s. They are pretty rare and can get very costly. While saving money to build my digital Omega collection, I stumbled across the gorgeous Seiko A927-6000.

As you can see in the photo, it bears a strong resemblance to the round Speedmaster LCD, which is perhaps the rarest of them all. I purchased the A927-6000 a few years ago to hold me over until I found this particular Omega model, and it's become one of my favorite digitals. It has an awesome look and I love the similarity to the Omega. You'll notice that it doesn't have the original Seiko band, but I think this canvas strap suites it nicely.

If any of you own a Seiko A927-6000, I'd love to see your photos. I don't see this model for sale very often, and wouldn't mind buying one in mint condition. Drop me a message if you're interested. Hoping to see your collections.

Thanks all. Enjoy!

I picked up an Omega Memomaster from an op shop a few months back.
I agree 100% there is some awesomeness about those old omega LCDs.


I grabbed it an whole bunch for $20 and didn't actually notice it was an omega until I was sorting a few weeks later and the bracelet had the telltale symbol.
I dropped a battery in it sparked up to life.
The movement is pretty inspiring!

The only issue with the watch was its face place was missing- hence its obvious value was not seen by other hunters.
I don't do gold and had no desire to spend time and money sourcing a face plate so flipped it on the bay.
It had a great feel and solid sound to its alarm.
Omega have always made awesome watches IHMO.
