    Could you verify a serial number beginning with 38 as being a '69 Speedmaster Pro? Mine has that number, but I see the it should have either a 26 or a 27?

    Tks

    I just ordered a black and grey NATO for my speedy. The original Omega band is starting to come apart so I needed a replacement. I have the same band for my Submariner and like it so I decided to get another one. From the way it looks on yours I think I will be happy. Here is a pic of what it is going on once it arrives. Cheers.

    Thanks to anyone who recommended the Hirsch Carbon strap in this and other threads. Just got mine last week and it's a perfect choice for the Speedmaster.

    Re: * Official Speedmaster Club Thread *

    I just got confirmation from Omega (Customer Care, Swatch Group US) of two things I'd heard in the forums but wanted to get the official answer on (sorry if this is elementary stuff: it wasn't for me!):

    - It is NOT recommended that a manual watch be wound while being worn on the wrist. I couldn't find this in Omega's manual, but I'd heard the same from others and I just wanted to confirm it.

    - It is OK to hack the seconds by applying back pressure to the crown, even if the second hand starts to move backward. The maunal mentions this technique, but does not address possible backwards motion. The OK from Omega contradicts several posts I have read stating that the back-pressure hacking technique puts excessive wear on the movement.

    Hope this helps somebody!

    ^ On your first point do you wound while literally on the wrist? If winding I wind in the morning before I put it on. Is that what you mean?

    In other words, would it be best to wind after I take it off at night before I go to sleep (ie. wind and then let it rest)?
