    Thought I’d share this cool video I saw today. Lots of fantastic eye candy for the vintage speedy lovers. Enjoy.

    Love the "Like it? Get it double!" principle :D

    Their private collection is insane but this is nothing new. Cool to have a chance to see such pieces ! ::love:: One thing I will never get used to Wei Koh's intermittent acknowledgement "Huh, aha, yeah, hum, yep, yeee, sure, aha, yes, aha, yeah, hum, yep, yeee, sure, aha, yes" while other people are talking ::facepalm2:: Can't he just shut the f*ck up and listen? Or switch off the mic when it's not his turn to talk? [​IMG]

    Also interesting, the "end of the 321 era = special editions" Theory appeared last week on Instagram and was seconded in comments by Petros Protopapas (Omega Heritage Team leader) paliopepe in the pic below :

    R&S DB must be a spin off entity of "Davidoff", to focus on watches.

    Interesting as always I listen carefully
    10:10 interesting bezel engraving versus printing
    19:45 NASA Jim Ragan
    but last but not least;
    22:00 actual Ed White 105-003-65 ... I have always been convinced Ed White wore a 105-003-64 on Gemini IV as the -65 probably wasn't available in June 1965 ::confused2::

    I loved this - always good to hear the thinking behind a collection.

    Great video, and Wei Koh does a great job as ever making the interviewees feel relaxed enough to talk openly. It was nice because what I could see was three genuine enthusiasts.

    I loved hearing about all the thinking most especially about the 145.012. What they said made sense, that it was the end of the 321 era so they threw in the special dials, and the orange hand. I suspect there may be more black dials that 20 but time will show us

    Interesting to hear that the 105.012-63 predated the 105.003-63. Nerdy stuff. I also wholeheartedly agree that the 105.012-63 with SWISS only is a very special watch and if you get the chance should be snapped up.

    What truly struck me was the quality of the watches they showed. Really nice.

    Thank you all.

    I love to hear enthusiasts talking about their collections and it’s really nice to see such a special bunch of Speedmasters in one go. I bought my first Speedmaster from Roy and Sacha and it is nice to see dealers that have a genuine interest in what they are buying and selling.

    An enjoyable video with some good insight into the special dials that were fitted to the last of the 321 movements.

    Also, having driven round today thinking about the video, what struck me is how nice each watch was.

    I am often asked what does "Collector" grade mean on the price chart.

    Now my reply will be to link to the video.....

    True. Serious stuff in that box. A lot of the great pieces have been taken off the market and moved into these sorts of collections, so it is a lot harder to source special watches today where 15 years ago online shopping on some of the watch websites and visiting watch shows was like being a kid in a candy store. It was only an issue of "how much" and not "where can I find one".
