    1973 Speedmaster Pro 861 - appreciate your thoughts on this one!

    Hi all,

    I posted this in the OMEGA forum first, should perhaps have been posted here instead.

    Short story: Should I buy this speedy on Tuesday?
    I have found a great looking Speedy from -73 on a forum, a 142.022 with a 861 according to seller. All papers gone, not much to go on. Price good though. I'm prepeared to pay for a service on it obviously but am also worried that a service might not fix all that is a bit strange with the watch (chrono hand not reseting perfectly, 35-40 sec slow per 24h cycle).

    Please check it out, and reply either on this thread or that one if you think you can give some advice.

    original thread is here:

    Thanks in advance,


    Andreas H

    The resetting to zero is a simple fix that will be done on a service, its not anything broken just an adjustment. They are plenty of speedy pros out there but if you are happy with the condition its in now no problem and if you are sending it for service should come back like new. I would of rather looked for one with the speedy bracelet I know you say you like straps, but the bracelet is such a comfy bracelet.
