Hey guys

So far this year I've had two unsuccessful attempts at getting my hands on a Speedy Pro...

Lets recap how that worked out... In February I drained my Pro fund for another speedy

This awesome MKIII Pro from around 1971





Then in April the damn watchco sales came up and I sprung for one of these (no regrets either!)

Cal 565 quickset Seamaster 300 :-!





And for attempt number 3?? Failed again....

Something awesome came up for an incredible price, alas it's not a Speedy Pro

Any guesses?

First of all, that Mark III is the bomb.

And I think you know how I feel about the SM300. (Hint: I'm wearing mine right now.)

Blind guess on what you got next: you like vintage stuff, so I will go with a cool f300 Seamaster.

Anyway, just a guess.

Well your speedy is still on hold but you have my kind of taste in watches Ozo, maybe a vintage omega with built in alarm ?

Thanks for the guesses guys! I'll see if I can narrow the field a bit....

It's not an Omega
It's a diver (with a ridiculous depth rating)
Its modern, but not a current model, but not old enough to be a vintage

Reading this back seems like a cryptic ransom note :-d

Underneath the bubble wrap is a BLACK BOX.

I'll go with the CX Swiss Military 20,000 Feet Dive Watch or if that's too new, the older CX Swiss Military 12,000 Feet Dive Watch

Ok, I know you're all dying to know.... What's in the box :-d





No severed heads here :-d

I see a Bakelite box



And what's in there? Is that a Breitling SuperOcean Pro? Why yes it is!



Artsy fartsy wrist shot



Daytime wrist shot... AR is looking decent



Really happy with this one :-! Thanks for playing

Nice one! With a W/R rating like that, this is the watch to wear if you're diving the wreck of the Titanic. And I like the fact that it can't be confused with your SM300.

Thanks guys! I won't lie, it did feel a little weird stepping out of the Omega box, but I'm loving my Superocean!

It's living on a Modena tropic strap, which suits it to a tee :-!

Hi. I love the Superocean Pro, I bought one of these about 12 years ago, still got it and still love it. It had a synthetic material waterproof strap which was s**t, had to get the strap replaced under warranty as it had split then the second one started to go but it was out of warranty so I bought a Diver Pro strap to replace it and never looked back.
