It looks nice, but if I were you, I would hold out for the Speedy Pro. This B&M is likely equipped with a Valjoux 7750, judging by the 6, 9, 12 subdial configuration and date. It could also be the ETA equivalent. Sturdy, robust movements. Aesthetically it is not my favorite thing out there, but that is a choice only you can make!
With discount, a Speedy Pro will run you ~$3,300. If you go used, you can easily get it under $3,000. Personally, I think it is better to hold out for what you really want. Otherwise you just will not be completely satisfied. My recommendation is exacerbated by the fact that this watch and the Speedy will play similar 'roles.' When you acquire a Speedy, what role do you foresee this watch playing?
You just answered my last comment! Thanks!
Hmm, they certainly would have similarities, but this has a white/silver dial, whereas the speedy has a dark blue one. Depends on ones mood I guess!
I certainly do agree though, the Speedy would probably be my go-to watch, but I think it´s a bit expensive. I have no problems with used, but I´m not sure where it´s safe to buy from. Currently being in Japan, I reckon most second hand stores dealing in jewelry and watches are safe, but I´m not comfortable with most internet stores as I´m pretty clueless when it comes to watches. (The exception is recommendations I guess) Want to buy this while I´m in Japan, as the yen is really low now, and I´m moving back to Norway within a month.
A new Speedy would take me back around 3000$, and frankly, I don´t have that much to spend. Used in Japan would probably be the equivalent of ebay.
