Thought I'd share a new addition...

It's no Moonwatch but it does the trick for me...

Nice watch.

I found the big Speedmaster a bit hard to wind as the crown is set very close to the case.

This seems from the photo to have a larger crown. How do you find the wind?

The wind isn't bad at all...but even better it's an automatic so the only time I'll be winding it is when I put it on fresh after it has sat a few days.

Congrats!

That was the first Speedmaster I ever had, 15 years ago. Since then I've never been without a Speedy in my collection. Im a big Speedmaster fan, and that's the one that started it all.

Really nice,

Is that the 38mm auto..? I've had a few of the larger 41mm moonwatches, but they always looked too big on me, like a kid wearing his grandfather's watch... I saw a nice youtube review of your watch, I think it's the correct size for me as well...

Enjoy

Omega says it's a 35.5 but I've seen them listed as 38 or 38mm which is much more accurate.

So far I like it. Good size and keeps good time. Not as heavy as newer Omegas but that's ok with me.

I generally stay away from the brighter colors as I'd feel somewhat limited in terms of what I would/ could wear it with.
