    I did it - I bought my grail! (1977 Omega Speedy Pro)

    Here's the post in full over at the Omega forum (with lots more picutures):

    Ebay bet paid off - the Speedy Pro gods have smiled upon me (crosspost w/OF)

    Most of my time here on WUS though has been spent in F71 so I thought I should mention it here as well. I totally rolled the dice on ebay, and managed to actually do pretty well.

    Very nice! I would be super scared to take that kind of chance on eBay, but reading your story makes me a tiiiiiny bit less reluctant. Awesome score, congrats and enjoy it!

    Congrats. A speedy is also my grail, but for some reason I've been liking the Reduced more lately, but prefer the Mark IIs over them all.

    That's great! One day I'll have a Speedy, too. Nice to see a good result come from a roll of the dice!
