Thread: My new arrival

  1. #1

    My new arrival

    I received my new to me Omega Speedmaster Professional yesterday (I was rather annoyed because the mail man left it sitting on my front porch, but that's another story). It is a reference 3590.50 with a serial number that dates it to 1985/86.
    I wanted a 3590 because it was the last version of the Speedy to use tritium and I just love the way the dial on these ages.
    I purchased from one of the big Japanese Omega sellers on eBay. I paid for the watch on 5/29 and it arrived on 6/4, 10 days quicker than the quoted delivery estimate. This thing must have cleared customs at a record pace.
    I really love it. I've wanted a Speedy for a while and am feeling pretty content at this point. Im selling a few of my other pieces to offset the costs and don't envision purchasing anything else for the next year or so.
    Anyway, I'll stop rambling at this point. Here are a couple of photos I just snapped with my iPhone 6.

    Fantastic. Lovely. The Speedmaster is my grail.

    In 1990, I stopped in the top jewelry store where I live. I needed a new everyday watch. Had a 1970's Omega dress watch for work that my Dad had bought off a co-worker for my for college graduation.

    Bought the Tag Heuer Formula 1 for $160 (what?, a _quartz_ watch for $160, are you crazy?, my father exclaimed when I showed it to him!)

    During the same visit to the jewelry store, I fell in love with the Omega Speedmaster Moon Watch. But at $ 1,250, I thought well, maybe one day I could get it.........

    Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!

    The mussus said they're not $1,250 anymore!

    Eventually, I'll get a Speedmaster........

    [Re- OP, is that a Univ. or Alabama thingy? All I can say, is Go Gators! (U of Florida) ( for the many UK members, it's just a silly U.S. college football rivalry thing)]

    Heck no it's not the university of Alabama, but if you went to Florida I'm sure you knew that and you're trying to ruffle my feathers. It's Auburn University. No couldn't go to Alabama, I have all my teeth and am not married to my cousin. WAR DAMN EAGLE!

    I love that pic. Even as an Auburn alum I've always found it funny. How anyone could be afraid of Uga is beyond me.
