Hi Omega Forum
an interesting thread on Public forum is asking whether you ever see Speedys worn in public -
I quite regularly do (every few months) but many say they've never seen one. I was surprised.
I bought a Speedy (my first good watch) as a personal celebration/transition gift when I went to train as a priest aged 25 - nearly 30yrs ago. I know, some may say such things are what you give up not what you buy at such moments, but I was given a small financial gift leaving my work and it went on a watch.
For the next 4 years with my head in books, I escaped every week to a watchmaker's bench of an afternoon - that watchmaker then became a priest.
When did you get your first Omega and what age were you?
