I am in a tough situation. I wanted to have an Omega either Seamaster or a Speedy. I went to visit an AD at my place. And told me Seamaster is much a better watch than a speedy ("you don't go to the moon anyway?, right?"..AD).
Anyways, there were some issues on the caliber 2500 which worries me much and the reliability of the 1863 on a 3573.50.00 Black Speedy which makes me lean on this one for now.
But what I really like is the Seamaster 2254.50 but I guess this is hard to find nowadays and being a newbie am afraid to buy them used online. Is there a reputable delaer that sells this SM?
As for the Speedy (sandwich), I am itching to pull the trigger anytime now. I don't mind winding this everyday as long as the caliber is reliable and durable, am good.
