I see. Again, personally I would prefer a lined, stitched strap for a Speedy, like in Hayward's pic above (with contrasting or same coloured stitching), but if you like this look:
maybe the straps from Hodinkee is worth a look.Quote:
On the 3570.50.00?

Not sure if you guys are on other watch forums, but if you do you may have worked out that there was a bit of a fly in the ointment with my Rouge - the guarantee card came with a non-matching serial number, which in a nutshell is a really really really bad thing.
My initial exchange with the seller over this matter was a little confusing as he tried (in vain) to reassure me that all was well - he thought I was referring to the catalogue reference number, which is never the same as the casing reference number.
You see, JLC engraves case reference numbers on the back of their watches (format XXX.XX.XX), which are not the same as the reference numbers you find in their catalogues for the exact same model (format XXXXXXX). They record the catalogue reference number in their guarantee cards.
Anyway, to cut a long story short, the original retailing boutique was contacted and after some checking they agreed that apparently a mistake was made somewhere by them. They are re-issuing a correct guarantee card for my watch as I type this.
See, a hitherto unforeseen benefit to purchasing boutique-only models with are tracked a lot better by the manufacture! I can only imagine how I would be SOL had this been a watch originally purchased from an AD...
I saw that on TPP. Hopefully you had time to delete the pictures of the serial number and card!post #18425 of 483122/26/13 at 11:09ampost #18426 of 483122/26/13 at 11:15amQuote:Originally Posted by dddrees

we just got in this one at work, it if were a black face id be tempted.post #18427 of 483122/26/13 at 12:20pmpost #18428 of 483122/26/13 at 12:46pmpost #18429 of 483122/26/13 at 12:50pmNice pics, Cylon.
I am not a Speedy owner (yet!) but would also be in the camp for black dials only. Haven't decided on sapphire sandwich vs. 3570.50. (Or vintage? hmmmm...)
Omega has done plenty of different versions over the years, and there's probably one for everybody.
Hayward: Sorry to hear your ownership experience was less than ideal.post #18430 of 483122/26/13 at 1:24pmpost #18431 of 483122/26/13 at 1:57pmQuote:
Glad to hear that everything worked out for you! That would have made me a bit crazy until things were resolved.Quote:
Nah...even with a black dial its still not a Speedy Pro.post #18432 of 483122/26/13 at 2:45pm
My workmate has this model and there's something "different" about it most certainly. Doesn't mean it's "off" - I quite like how it looked on his wrist - it's just... not a Speedy Pro. Is it the date? And yet others have wished that the Speedy Pro would come with a date...
Wearing this one today, finally rotated "away" from the 3970 for a while. Something off with the 5040's moonphase (it's supposed to be a full moon tonight). Will have to check what's going on tonight.post #18433 of 483122/26/13 at 2:55pmpost #18434 of 483122/26/13 at 2:55pmpost #18435 of 483122/26/13 at 3:01pmThose speedies are beautiful. I had one several years ago, and I miss it very much.
Unfortunately, I won't be getting one again anytime soon, as my planet ocean co axial just died on me after 3 years. Seems a bit early... Anyhow, goodbye $500.
