    3539.50

    Hi Guys! I am thinking of getting a reduced 3539.50, I had the Pro briefly and loved it. At times it felt a little big but that was rare. My wrist is about 7.4 inches and I have no prob pulling the larger watches off, daily I wear an Omega 300 2264 which is about 41mm I think...but lately Ive been shying away from larger watches, they just seem cumbersome these days. I have also been wearing the zeno 1016 homage at 36mm alot, and it has just been very comfortable. I also like the the two aqua terra's I have, I think those are 38.5mm...Maybe I'm getting too old but smaller watches seem to have grown on me.

    Owner, anything you didn't/don't like about the reduced? Does anyone know the width size of the actual dial, to get an idea how it compares to some of my current watches?

    Anyone seen anything similar to this, showing all the measurements for the reduced?



    Thanks, appreciate any feedback you guys can give me!

    I had a 3510.50 (the first iteration of the reduced watch) and upgraded to a vintage 145.022. I like that the 3539.50 got rid of the seconds number track....

    I honestly like the Speedy Pro a lot more. The size difference is considerable, and the 39mm almost feels kind of too small for a sports watch. The spacing on the dials looks a little strange too, especially when compared to a Pro.

    I also had some issues finding folks to work on the reduced movement. Everyone I took one to always would rather send the movement to the service center rather than work on it themselves. The chronograph module I guess is fairly thin and parts are hard to come by?

    I hear the Omega SC ends up just doing movement swaps on them, since the movements are not stamped with serials (serials are tied to cases), rather than repair the modular eta/depraz movement. So learning all this has made me feeling the modular model was designed to be more “economical”.

    That aside, it was a fine watch when I had it and I got some good use out of it!

    Tried on both 7.5" wrist and did not like the reduced at all. The proportions felt off. Personal preference but I would go with the Speedy.

    check the Speedmaster racing series (automatics) or the FOIS / CK2298 line as they are about 1mm shorter than the Speedy Pro

    Re: 3539.50

    btw, if I were to give an honest assessment, the Reduced wears like a 36mm watch, while the 38.5mm Aqua Terra wears like a 40mm watch due to the difference in dial size. If you like the way the AT feels, I would suggest the FOIS or Speedmaster Pro, both of which have a 40mm case (sans crown guard). in my collection, the reduced and FOIS sit harmoniously side by side:

    If you liked how the Watchco SM300 felt and wore on your wrist, then the Speedy Pro has the same case size and wears the same, so it should be your watch.
