    Which Speedmaster?

    Hi all,

    Iím usually on the Rolex forum (donít hate me! )

    I have been on the waiting list for a Daytona forever and itís not likely to happen.

    Looking into getting a Speedmaster, would like one of the limited editions but not sure which is best of the current crop?

    Any pointers would be very helpful, budget would be about £5K give or take depending on your suggestions.

    Iím not completely new to Omega as I have a Seamaster.

    Thank you.

    Which Speedmaster?

    At that price point my favorite would be a Tintin. There is also a thread I started which has a bunch of recommendations from folks.

    Ashame we did NOT buy the tintin when it was available for $2800! I would endorse any of the apollo LE editions.

    My top pics would be the CK2998 (navy version), alaska project, or the plain moonwatch!

    Iím getting one with stickers for $6,800 but am not able to do it. Part of it is that I know the retail price. Part of it is fear that the inflated prices wonít hold.

    I'm guessing Omega will introduce some new models within a month. I'd wait to see what comes available.

    Having said that, I have four manual wind Speedmasters. My favorites are an old 3572.50 with a gilt 863/tritium dial and the CK2998 LE.

    +1 for the CK2998. It's a beautiful watch.

    If you really want a Daytona then I would persevere in trying to get one, maybe look into the pre-owned market if the ADs are dry, lots of well reputed pre-owned watch shops in the UK, especially in London. Check out watchfinder, austin kaye etc.

    Otherwise I would go for the Omega Speedmaster Professional manual wind with hesalite crystal. Or wait a little bit for the newer ones which will come equipped with the new caliber 321 movement.

    Re: Which Speedmaster?

    Thanks for the replies all

    Are any of the limited editions not manual wind? I know thatís not strictly true to the original, also are they ok for swimming with etc or is that an issue on all the Speedmasters?

    The CK version looks lovely.

    Thank you once again.
