After a few years with my 60th Anniversary Speedy I have to say.

 By: Miles_151 : July 30th, 2021-12:06
I love it as much today as I did when I had it. It spends a lot of time on my wrist. I just canโ€™t go anywhere near water with it. Itโ€™s been back to Omega after letting in water. A first for me in over 35 years of watch collecting. Anyway all is good now a...  

Thank you.

Cool watch! Disappointing to hear about the water

That's also never happened to me--and I do my best not to be *too* careful with my watches! Any idea what went wrong?

I couldn't believe it. All I did was put my arm quickly into my koi pond.

And that was it. Filled up with water. Having been swimming in a Patek complication I was a bit disappointed to say the least. To be fair though Omega were very good and sorted it for me with a full service. I have heard this happening to a few owners of ...

I have seen family members (will not name and shame them here) snorkeling with a Speedy Pro, and no problems there. But now I have to ask: what Patek compilation have you swam in??? I said that I try not to baby my watches, but I have to admit that I have... 

This one.

You could knock me over with a feather right now

. . . in the last ten years. Fifteen years ago, a 2915 could be had for four figures. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I remember it.

Handsome strap combo!

Good to hear the issue had been sorted. Mine says hello. I try to keep it away from water too. ...  

Well done.

 By: Miles_151 : July 30th, 2021-18:48
I just stupidly assumed it was waterproof. Silly me what did I think it was a Rolex or something ? ๐Ÿ˜œ M.

Great piece Miles ๐Ÿ‘

Itโ€™s a daily wearer for sure. M.

My favourite Speedy in recent times.

I thought long and hard about this one when launched. I liked the bracelet too, although that was solely based on how it looked and very brief opportunities to try the watch on.

Did you pull the trigger?

 By: Miles_151 : July 30th, 2021-21:41
Glad you liked it also. M.

Sadly there always are.
