I have two. For srs. Looks like the original cal. 321 movement. It is not the very earliest, because of the case shape (mine, neither).
what a hairless korean arm!
jk nice watch Ed.
stitch, you should get the Speedy. I looked at one for a few years, sort of hemming and hawing about getting it. Once I did, it was clear that I missed out on a couple of years of enjoyment.
I'd love to pick up a 321 in that kind of shape. Nice.
hook a brother up!
agreed. dopey will hook me up.
I bought it on the bracelet and added a strap (bought together) when I negotiated the price the first time I bought it.. I got it from my AD. Not much wiggle room when it comes to Omega accessories apparently..
There usually isn't much wiggle room on accessories. Thats why if I know I want a watch on a bracelet and a strap, I buy it on the bracelet so that its part of the negotiated price of the watch. Bracelets are always far more expensive than the straps, so its better to get the discount on the bracelet than strap.
Totally agree Dino
if you even sniff you may want a bracelet in the future, better and a lot cheaper to just get up front at the time of original purchase.
case in point buying the Speedy on bracelet but adding a strap saved me several hundred dollars versus buying it on the strap and adding a bracelet later..
Okay - thanks. I have gone the Omega accesory route before, but when I see $400 for a strap, I think how far that would get me toward a good pair of shoes and I invariably turn away. I have had some very nice custom straps done in the $150 range from this guy:
So I will probably go that route. Just means I have to wait a bit, unless there is something in the strap drawer that would work.
Which reminds me, I have a couple OE Patek straps that I took in a trade that I need to get around to posting for sale.
Bonus feature: the less you have to deal with Omega, the better. Plenty of companies make quality straps.
I will have to say the new Omega deployant ain't half too shabby though
I'll have to keep that strap guy in mind, thanks!
pulled the trigger on a tudor pelagos.... pics to come
