    Three Tachy Chronos

    So I started off the week without any plans of new pick ups. Well somewhere along the line things went a bit sideways.

    First I ordered a Speedmaster 57, 9300. My first Omega. This one had my attention a while and decided to finally pull the trigger, with bracelet.

    Then came a 69/70 Mark II off eBay that has never been refinished. Already ordered new Crystal
    with Tachy in case this one isn't just a simple in and out. First hand cranker too btw. Second Omega in case you weren't paying attention

    And the third tachy Chrono I ordered this week is a stainless Tudor Fastrider. Usually only see the ceramic ones and price was right so see how this one does in my wrist. Always happy to invite a new Tudor into the house.

    A fellow can never have too many tachy chronos can he..

    That's amazing! I like all of them!

    The Speedy 57 is a wonderful piece; the MK II will make you admire the old 861 movement and the Tudor... well... I did try one once, and it was very difficult not to bring it home...

    Congratulations, Chase!

    I've still got two maybe three to rotate out, so I'm gong to call it a wash

    I feel like I'm buying a Model T dressed like a Bugatti Veyron.

    How many times to I need to crank the old jalopy for a full charge?

    There's a moment when it won't let you go on winding (unless you apply extreme pressure and break a few parts - never happened to me in the last 40 years). That's it; once every 24h, no more, no less. If the movement is in a reasonably shape, the winding should be smooth. Oh yes: and welcome to the world of vintage Omega! Now to the the watchmaker for a full service, because it probably needs...

    Yes I'm pretty sure it does. I'd be happy if it were decent enough (it is supposed to be) to at least wear it a few times first though.
    Couple movement shots of it. Mostly I wasn't too worried as it seems parts are very readily available. That is my quick perspective anyways hope in not wrong
