Just picked up a new to me Seamaster Pro and I have a Speedy Pro, thinking of selling the latter and getting the NEDU, blue dial, which I have always loved.
The Speedy fits like a glove and so does the NEDU, even though it's thick, it curves right around my wrist.
Why am I even thinking of this? The Speedy is delicate...hesalite crystal and not much WR, and all of my watches see boats, beach and water quite a bit, so it relegates the Speedy to nights on the town and casual gatherings, not much of a sport watch....right?
Tell me I'm crazy for thinking of selling the Speedy, an iconic watch, for the Ball. I know the Ball is every bit the quality of the Omega, I've had several Ball watches, but I am without one now and I miss the tritium and ruggedness and want one in my collection....and the NEDU has been at the top of my Ball watch wish list for a while. Also, note, that i am, other than Seiko, a one watch per brand guy...and now that there will be two Omega's in the stable...hmmm.
Sure, I can sell the Speedy for more than I will pay for the Ball, but that's not the point....what would you do?
Please note that it is not an option to have both as I want just one chronograph in the collection, other than "affordables".
Thank you for your replies!
