Stainless band, 18k white gold fluted bezel in 41mm with the new 3250 movement. Had the option to go 2 tone 18k gold for the same price but opted out. It was a tough choice but gold is over the top for me. I wanted something elegant that didn't scream "look at me"

The new 3250 movement is off the charts accurate. I've been a huge Grand Seiko fan for some time now because their Hi Beat 36,000 VPH is so good. The new movement promises +/-2 seconds a day which is incredible considering COSC standards are -4/+6 a day. I bought this watch and set it to the atomic clock and checked back 10 days later to see where it was. It was exactly to the second. It blew my mind.

I never thought Rolex would beat GS at the accuracy game but this new movement is unreal.

As Iím sure some of you will remember (since I said it a couple times) I said was going to hold off buying my dream watch (Speedy Pro) for my 30th birthday (today) because my wife and I are expecting out first child in just a few weeks!
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.

Very nice. I purchased my Datejust 41 and my wife's ladies Datejust 31 on Valentines Day. She was in shock.

Wow awesome gifts!
Wife is not into watches in the least bit.
However she inherited a very nice old Concorde that belonged to her great grandmother.
She knew it was nice...but didn't quite know how nice lol

Nixon Sentry Chrono. Not an expensive watch, but I love how it looks.

Nice and congrats!

Speedy Pro is a special watch! My brother decided he wanted a DJ41 and was selling his Speedy and I couldnít pass up giving it a try again after 10+ years since I last tried one. Love it! Unfortunately found a slight issue so itís off for service right now, but excited to get it back.

I still love my Sub, but the Speedy has a special something that a modern Sub lacks.

Yeah the Speedy really was and is THE watch for me.
A love the history, I love the look, fits me perfectly. Checks off all the boxes for me.
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...

Ha, yeah, I've also been eyeing a Milgauss lately, though I like the Z-Blue model myself. Would have to sell my Sub for one and not sure about that though...so we'll see how things shake out.

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.
