My first vintage Speedmaster

 By: i_am_Sam : June 25th, 2020-08:53
I've been hunting for a Vintage Speedmaster for a while, I really think its a quintessential watch to have for any watch enthusiast. 

Finding the right one, however isn't as easy as I thought it would be. I knew I wanted a Cal. 321 but it just has to be a balance between condition and price. There are so many factors in condition as a lot of the straight lugs speedmaster are not as well preserved condition and most of them has a pretty worn bezel.

So just before the end of last year I found this piece here, a 105.003-64 "Ed White" in quite a lovely condition with archive from Omega, stating that this watch was delivered to a US Naval Base. And here it is :

Will it be my only vintage speedmaster? Perhaps not. But if I have to end up with this one, I would still feel very fortunate! 


Knowing a little bit about these...

Awesome, my friend. This 105 003 really is in great condition. Like you I prefer straight lugs Speedmasters. Bravo! [nt]

Straight lugs...

 By: i_am_Sam : June 25th, 2020-09:29
are definitely sexier. just like no crown guard Submariner and GMT.
Thank you my friend!

Exactly! [nt]

The Speedmaster is legendary, and for good reason.



Thank you John!

A legendary watch it is, just as it is a Submariner

Super looking Speedmaster.

Condition: awesome! What a beauty! Obviously you knew what you were looking for. And at this point—the right one showing up, and in enviable condition—price takes a back

I've been going back and forth for a while until I finally found one...
Many thanks!

Great pick Sam. That EW looks to be in pristine condition as well...

I am a huge Speedy fan so agree that everyone needs one on their collection (modern or vintage, but both is always my answer 😁).

Exactly!!! Thank you J! [nt]

Like Dad used to say: "If you're going to do anything . . .

. . . do it right."


That's an exceptionally well preserved 105.003, Sam.  Congrats!


Might as well go all in!

I stand corrected.

 By: xyz123abc : July 5th, 2020-21:57
It was theclick that confised me

1965 can also work for the 105 003, if my memory serves me well. [nt]
