It's a Speedmaster reduced, not the Speedmaster Pro. As the ad says, it is smaller than the Speedy Pro, and it is an automatic instead of a manual wind.

Its a Speedmaster reduced

Looks to be original, in good shape and a real Omega. It should go
for between $800 and $1200 usd. Seller has sold three of them in the last
90 days. He has good feedback but I would ask him about the other three
he sold. Doesn't look to be the same watch, but you never know.
Be careful and ask questions. Its a nice watch but I would get a used,
full size Speedy for a few dollars more, thats just my thoughts.
Nice watch and will serve you well.

Oh Henning...........................

You would be well served to take Jim's advice. I own both, there is no comparison between the two watches. Speedy reduced is OK, But it ain't a Speedmaster Professional, never will be. As a matter of fact, I'd be interested in knowing how others felt, as well. Anyone? David

Well I for one think you are 99% full of crap .... oh, you mean about the Speedy. Yea, Speedy Pro is the real deal. I like the reduced, but would definitely get the Pro first. ;-) - David

A warm welcome to you Henning, and as you can see already, you'll get your advice around here mixed with a seasoning of wit and fun. Enjoy. And I think it'd look nice with a skirt....b-)

Welcome to the forum, henning. I'm sure you know that these guys are just goofin with you. The Reduced is a perfectly fine watch. It has a nice design and a capable movement. And, as you noted, it's quite a bit less expensive that the Professional. You can find a pre-owned Reduced for well under $1000, whereas Pros usually go for around $1500. In fact, from a lot of other manufacturers, the Reduced would be an excellent watch. The problem is that it sells along side the afore mentioned Speedmaster Professional, which is an iconic watch.

I know that when I was a student, I would've been more than pleased to wear a watch of the quality of the Reduced. If it's what your budget allows, and you like the watch, then go for it and enjoy it. Maybe, sometime down the road, you'll have a chance to add a Pro.

Hi guys
Didnt buy the watch but i think it is what i am looking for. Offcourse i would prefer the real deal ( the pro) if i had the money, but i can see some advantages with the reduced: I have quite thin wrists so i think it might look better. I hate when the watches look too big ( like wearing a breitling). I will look around some more though. Thanks for the advice though!

I stil think the reduced is a better size for wearing day to day. Especially when you're not on a space mission! However, the current fashion for oversized watches has made the bigger Pro version a lot more acceptable. Both are very nice watches
