seiko lover hankered after a vintage omega crono with day-date and settled on this new addition. not the most loved speedy it seems? but I'm liking this one more and more. a keeper me thinks. what are thoughts?
Right you are. Love this article, which while it’s not 100% accurate (as in, this watch was made for a much longer time period, well into the ‘80s when mine was built), is still a bit of a love letter to the watch. Omega Speedmaster Day-Date c.1045 in DetailI always liked these.
Believe they use the Lemania 5100 movement.
Nice watch, congratulations.
Love the mesh look. I've just ordered a Staib mesh with butterfly clasp - 3.6mm thick option - do you know how that compares to the omega thickness? I tried to find that out but could track down. Looked similar. Next thickness up was 4.6 or so which looked a little heavy. Reviews of that came up well, and got direct from germany at £160. Maybe should have coughed up for the oem...I love mine! Currently have it on an Omega mesh. For some reason, I cannot separate the case and movement, which would be cool, but I wasn't willing to press any harder
Cheers! Yes, I think/hope it's a good-un. It came will full papers, service records, box etc... one owner, last service was mid 90's and not worn since. Any thoughts on if I should get this serviced or leave it? It all feels good, crono runs, pushers feel good and resets cleanly. +30 seconds a day, which I don't mind for not a daily. Hand winding seems ok, but it's like the first portion of the turn has resistance then a reduction in resistance - maybe a slight slip. Power reserve seems ok. The service guru for my seiko's does list 5100s but he's always backed up for months and don't want to lose it so soon, but wondering if it should take visit...You have a very nice edition of this Mk 4.5. The case looks sharp and like new. I had one that wasn't anywhere near the the condition of yours. You have a good one and the Lemania 5100 movement is a good one. Have fun!
