I haven't worn my Speedmaster in a while and now it's not keeping correct time. It's slowing down quite dramatically. I'm losing 2 minutes every 8 hours. Is there anything I can do or should this be sent out to a watch repairer to be clean and lubricated?

Yes definitely, if you’re losing that much time in such a short period of time you could be possibly doing damage to expensive internals by not addressing it and still running it. Like driving a car with very low oil, nothing good comes from it.
Send to Omega or highly competent Indy for service ASAP.

Put the Spectre on its steel bracelet... will probably switch back to NATO soon (I honestly love how the bracelet looks and feels, but the NATO is classic and really makes the watch stand out, while the steel understates the piece)

Very nice!
I have this same one with the dash of orange (golf model) and a blue 8500. With a handful of straps, the combo is beyond versatile. Such a great do-it-all design!

Yesterday I ordered the ref. 311.30.40.30.01.001 which was released last tuesday. ETA april 2020 they said....

I'm turning 50 in may. Nice birthday present for myself.

https://www.omegawatches.com/en-us/w...31130403001001



I already had two Speedmasters (a Moonwatch hesalite and a reduced years ago) before and a handful of other Omegas (mosly PO's), but I've been craving for the 321/Lemania 2310 movement for about 5 years now. But prices of those vintage Pre Moon 321 Speedies are semi skyrocketing. And this is the best I can get as a daily and with the 321 calibre.

Cheers
Robin

Amazing, it's a beautiful piece! I was a bit stunned by the $14,100 US price, however...

Was it easy to order, or did you need to have a close relationship with an AD before hand? Any words of a waitlist?

Easy, but a day too late probably.
Waitlist is showing on the off. Omega page, dunno if that's only marketing (just like Rolex), but I guess there will be a queu initially.
Yes I have a very close relationship with this AD. I'm in the watchtrade and jewelry business myself.(my old man turning 74 next month, is a watchmaker by profession)

Omega definitely has some unique and pricey pieces, and definitely competes with the "best of them".

However, unlike Rolex, for example, many of the universally released models can be picked up at discounts on the used market, even certified and with original papers. Probably due to sheer availability (and some would say due to the vast amount of models/variations Omega produces of the same watch)

There are, however, many coveted limited edition, precious metal, and vintage pieces that are as recognizable and robust as any competitor which retain value well or have appreciated in value. I'd put the Speedmaster 321 and World Timer in that category, and even lump in my Seamaster "Spectre" to a degree. The Spectre appreciated in value after all 7007 pieces were sold quickly and has maintained that value since 2015, even with the release of other limited edition Seamaster pieces (and even other Bond models)

That is one nice piece! Wish I still had my 1967 321 pre-moon speedy. It cost about the same.

Thabk you and both your AT's look sick. The AT I now have is on a black leather strap with white stitching. Complements the dial nicely!

How long have you had your Spectre AT? 8500 been lasting well through the years?
