Far from run of the mill on that one. I love the 9000 movements.
The black one is a real sleeper too. Most people would think it is a regular speedy
Thanks for all the info everyone. Yeah they had various other iterations, but I love the size of this one, big with out being too big.
Sadly I’m not in a position to buy at the moment, but I’m think a speedmaster will be added next. Very very cool watch.
Also it appeared to be completely mint.

I live in a smallish city, so I know the feeling of finally getting to see a particular brand in real life. Congrats on seeing Omegas in person and finding one you love. That Speedy looks great on you, but that PO in the background looks great, too.
It's the date that makes this version so appealing to me. Wish my Speedy Pro had a date. The number of times I check my wrist only to be dissapointed as there's no date...
It's a very nice watch but a little too big for me. It's nice that it has a date complication.

It’s a shame they discontinued this reference. I was kicking around a Speedmaster last year and had difficulty finding this one. Normal manual 1861 and 1863, sure. The one you tried on combines a lot of great Moonwatch-like features. Best of both worlds...keeps the great handset and legibility with a nice movement and date complication.
It's a great watch.
I got mine new (my AD was able to source one new) and paid $5,400 in January this year,
It has been on my wrist every day since.
The big advantages are:
WR to 100 meters vs 50 meters
You can let the Tachymeter run as a second hand continuously
Quick set hour
I use the sub dial as a standard time to reference when I am on travel and have to set the hour.
