    Hi guys,

    This may be a very silly question, so apologies in advance if this is the case. Last month I purchased an Omega Speedmaster Professional manual wind from a store in London. I just wanted to know if there was a way to find the actual year of production of the piece? I have typed the reference number into the vintage watch database on the Omega site which says International Collection - 1996. But thought this may be a more generic category for the movement rather than the actual year?

    I'd really appreciate the feedback..

    Thanks

    David

    The serial number (not reference) can be used to date a watch

    I see that my 77million speedmaster from 2013, seems to have a movement from 2005/2006.
    Is that right?

    Do we agree that it is a 2005 production then?
