As far as the Speedy, I noticed one of the chrono pushers was sitting at a bit of an upward tilting angle. Under close inspection with a loupe it appears the pusher tube wasn't properly seated into the case. It's still under warranty so I sent it to the Omega boutique in Seattle as my brother had succesfully used them once in the past for service on a different Speedy (he's had like 5 of them over the years). Will be curious to see what they say, hoping for an easy warranty fix.
Seems like it should be problem free.
I'm just curious how long it actually takes (I have heard around a month).
At least it is still under warranty though.
Otherwise it is a $750 service.

I really don't see myself wanting anther watch as much as I wanted the Speedy.
I'm honestly not much of a Rolex guy. They just don;t really do much for me.
Sure the Sub is iconic and I like it, but not sure if I would ever buy one.
If I were to buy a Rolex it would probably be a white dial Milgauss or Explorer.

But just curious what was the issue with your speedy? And did you send it to Omega for service?
Just curious of the experience...
Felt the same about Rolex's until I had the opportunity to handle one in person. I've seen some rare Sub's, handled a DJ and messed with my friends GMT2 and I instantly fell in love. The fit and finish on the GMT2 was just incredible. It's definitely a different style of watch from the Speedy but being that my only "dress" watch is a quartz Seiko or my JR Terrascope with a beige dial (still can't find a proper strap for it), I find myself really wanting a DJ or GMT2.

My Grandfather has a day/date, and that thing IS nice.
Father in-law has an Explorer II and it is very nice as well.
There is no denying the quality and fit and finish, but those are the only 2 Rollies I've ever had first hand experience with.

Well, my wonderful wife surprised me with this this morning before work.
I am over the moon (pun intended)


On an old leather Nato for now till I can go get the bracelet sized.

Congratulations! I think it looks fantastic with the leather strap! Your wife has definitely been listening and picking up on the hints, you are a lucky man.

She definitely set the benchmark for when it's your turn to buy her push-pressent when the baby arrives. Enjoy in good health!

Haha you're telling me! I was going to buy her a very nice "diaper bag".
Does Louis Vuitton make diaper bags? lol
