    I'm 54 and I received this Speedy just before Christmas.

    My Wife retrieved it from a ZipLoc bag full of watches my FIL had stashed in a closet for the last 30 years. I took it to my local watch maker and had it serviced and regulated. He told me it was a 70 but everything I've researched points to it being a later in the year 69. It's in good shape regardless and I've got to say I really love it and I'm glad it's back in service after being locked away for the last three decades. There's a Swiss Dynasty Chrono I'm also trying to get my hands on from that notorious bag as well.
    Wow that's quite a story. It looks in superb shape, enjoy your vintage Speedmaster!

    So out of all my Omegas, my 2220.80 will never leave my collection.
    So very similar to mine when I lost my house, Doxa, Omega Planet Ocean and all I owned. I got a Tudor BB years later but I still long for my grail watch a Speedy Pro. The watch that I first saw in the movie Event Horizon and I was hooked. Now to justify a watch that price with hardly any WR

    Re: First Omega - what age and why did you get an omega?

    I got my first, and only Omega approx 4 years ago, when I was 51.
    My wife and I wanted to get each other a nice gift to celebrate our 20th Anniversary. I did LOTS of research on which watch I was going to get as I knew I'd never be able to sell it, ( and I do flip a few).

    I went back and forth looking at the Speedy Pro and after a while I discounted it.

    Then one day, I had a work appointment and the client I met was wearing a Speedy and it blew me away. First one I'd seen in 'the wild'

    I started looking at it again, and it all fell into place. The legibility, history, simplicity, no date, strap options, not to mention the fact that it's gorgeous to look at.

    The Speedy Professional was the watch I chose and have not regretted the decision one little bit.

    Great thread by the way.

    Re: First Omega - what age and why did you get an omega?

    I was 25 years old when I purchased this Speedmaster Day-Date back in June 2000. This was the first "material" item I bought after starting my career. As to why I purchased an Omega, part of it was influenced by my following of CART/Champ Car in the late 90's as Omega was the official timekeeper. In addition, my uncle had a Schumacher Mk40 so that probably had some pushed me toward Omega instead of TAG Heuer.
