  1. I agree with those that advised to send your watch into an RSC. If you call one of the RSC's (ie Dallas) they will send you a mailing kit and very detailed instructions. If your watch is still under warranty Rolex will set it right. You could also ask the AD to do so. As an AD they would be obliglated to honor your request. For reference, my V series GMT IIC is unbelievably consistent. It runs +1 sec per day over a 2 week period. At a minimum your watch should be within COSC standards and most importantly gaining or losing the same amount every day.
  2. Creative approach - let us know how it works.
  3. Looks to me like those notches are cut from a robotic wheel tool of some type versus a die. My guess is those lines are the result of the cutting edge. It don't think it is the grain of the steel as that would only be visible in the microstructure.

    Got the Call!!!

    Beautiful watch - congrats. Also, pardon my ignorance but what are some of the specs on that beauty? It looks like it has a ceramic bezel and I'm sure there are other attributes that made it a limited edition.
  5. Thanks very much for the info Fr. John. Your are clearly the "Ambassador of Omega" on TRF. I'm looking forward to joining the Speedy Pro Club
  6. Quick question for the Omega experts.... What is the current MSRP for a Speedy Pro (3750.50.00)? I saw $4,050 recently on a google search but then heard that Omega just had a price increase. I'm thinking of adding this iconic watch to my collection. Would appreciate this info if you have it Thanks guys
  7. Thanks guys - the Speedy Pro sure lives up to it's billing!! What a great watch...can't take it off.
  8. Fair enough - thanks for playing along guys. Here is the obligitory wrist shot. I am working on doing a few close ups & will try to post some later.
  9. Well then..... we're almost there
  10. Is this getting boring?
  11. Well... I always enjoy these kinds of posts so I thought I would create one myself. This will be the first time I have attached pics so I hope this works. Care to play the guessing game?
  12. Congrats to you too! And what a coincidence that we both got ours today. That Fr. John sure casts a wide net. Nice pics as well.
  13. Congrats Ultraman! I just joined the club this week as well with a Speedy Pro. The Speedmaster is an awesome watch with an iconic history. I haven't taken mine off since I got it
  14. Fr. John, This is a very serious situation. I would suggest that you send me that watch ASAP for safe keeping while you deliberate on the matter. On second thought don't do that....you have already done enough "damage" enabling my Omega desires All kidding aside I can appreciate your logic. If it were me and I truly didn't wear it much then I probably wouldn't keep it. My main qualifications for keeping a watch I don't wear much are a) legitimate sentimental value and/or b) a high collectible potential. I only have two watches in this category. Besides you can't really go wrong by adding a Rolex DJ your collection.
  15. Nope ... not crazy at all. You had better scratch that itch or it will only get worse!! IMHO the Speedy Pro is every bit as much an icon as the Rolexes we know and love

    Santa's Early

    Congrats - great watch Fr. John rocks - he helped me out as well earlier this year
  17. As others have stated - take this man's counsel... an invitation to deal with Fr. John's AD is second to none. Made my decision easy! Quote:
  18. That was cool - great "picturelogue" Love that watch too
