UPDATE APRIL 2018: I traded this watch in April 2018 for another Omega – the Planet Ocean Deep Black Red (188.8.131.52.01.003).

I was fortunate enough to work at the intersection of North and Luckie streets in Atlanta for over four years. Folks in Atlanta would know that as the headquarters of The Coca-Cola Company.

When you think about the origins of the Rolex Submariner, something probably like the Tudor Heritage Black Bay should come to mind.
The El Primero movement is legendary – driving the first generation Rolex Daytonas for many years.
