I don't hate the watch or anything, but I don't know why it's so well loved. As I understand it, it's a fairly ordinary movement, lacking automatic winding even, and it doesn't look that special either. My Omega collecting friend here at the university who has probably 30+ Omegas doesn't get it either. Hell, I'd say I'm sort of a fan of Omega, but I still don't understand it that well. I know it has a compelling history, but a lot of watches do.
Anyway, so why's the Speedy so special to you? Or do you think it's overrated (which doesn't mean it's bad)?
