    Gift Did my part for the recovery on Black Friday! Did you buy anything?

    So I got me a Omega Speedy for Black Friday. I found a deal with a sale and a coupon that got me 40% off list so I couldn't resist. I was shooting for a 3576.50 Moonphase Speedmaster but I could not find as good a deal on one of those. I ended up with a more mainstream Speedmaster Professional model except it has the brown dial instead the more common black. I am still debating if I like the brown as much as the black. A Speedy has been on my list for a while but I was in no hurry since I already had a Seamaster. I figured if I ever ran across a good deal I would go for it.

    So did anyone else do anything to help the world economy?

    So what difference does it make, whether it's 20 minutes or 20 years, since neither amounts to the faintest echo of the tiniest whisper in the thunder of time.

    Nice one, I didn't know they came with a brown face! Would like to see "live" pics when you get it. A sale plus 40% off? Sounds fantastic!

    Yeah, it is getting hard to find a good discount on Omega these days with them trying to upscale the brand. It is probably why I had a limited choice of models. I'll put pictures up when I get it next week.

    Those are both nice finds. I saw some nice discounts around on the ML Retrograde, especially some gold ones. I am trying to keep my acquistions under control however!

    Congrats, that's a lovely Speedy! I agree, I'm glad I got a pre-owned (used less than a year) Omega AT 8500 at a good price, don't see myself buying anything new from an AD in the foreseeable future.

    Definitely in the market for an old Speedy (preferably cal. 321 but 1861 will do as well) or a vintage Seamaster chrono with the cal. 321.
    Collection:
    A few of this and some of the other ...

    Yep, Omegaphiles call it the Chocolate Speedy. Search "chocolate" in the Omega Forum for some cool strap ideas. It's my favorite Speedmaster - nice grab NB.


    I got a calendar moonphase watch yesterday. Can't tell you what it is, but I'll shoot some pictures and post when I have free time. (My job is in retail. A big sale weekend = no personal life)
