Nothing special.
Citizen, Seiko, Swatch.
Nothing too fancy lol. The hamilton is pretty much the watch I wear every day. Have a bunch of different straps for it.
But like I've already said I have been eying the Speedy Pro for a looooong time.
Was going to buy one in the next month but with a baby on the way in the next 2 months I am going to hold off and see.
Instead of a birthday present maybe it will be a fathers day present haha.

What else do you have in your collection?

legitimate reasoning to hold off on the speedy. a speedy will always be there for you when you're ready.

swatch irony, Seiko quartz dress watch (forgot the code), gshock, victorinox, jeanrichard terrascope, laco type 1, I think that's it...for now haha.

Just an observation but almost every picture has a skinny hairy white arm. I too have this condition, in abundance, but wonder if everyone showed up to a car meet if it would look like a family reunion.

Hah wow we have a very similar collection. One of my swatches is an Irony as well.
I do also have a G-Shock that I did not mention.
And Apple Watch does not count!

My experience with vintage, not necessarily Omega, but here are some things to look for:

Integrity of the bracelet
Condition of bezel
Condition of clasp
When was it last serviced

I have no issue with buying a vintage watch, but if the watch hasn't been serviced then I would budget for that. The beauty of mechanical watches with brands like Omega is they can run for many decades or well over a century.
Quartz movements won't last that long but the beauty with those is that the movements can easily be replaced.

Thanks for the tips!

Which watch are you looking at specifically?
https://omegaforums.net/ will be a good resource.

And you can barely buy one on leather these days....nor get one for $4k sadly. They were certainly a better buy in years passed, but they still make a hell of a watch!
