    Hi all,

    Following up on my thread from last week, and in large part due to the advice and encouragement from the good folks on this forum (particular thanks to @JFingers, @Taddyangle and @padders), I just picked up my first Speedy, a 3572 from 1999.

    I effing love it!

    Some pics are attached.

    Thanks again,
    Pete

    We are pretty good at enabling other members to buy watches. With that said, congrats and what do you have your eye on for your next Speedmaster?

    As you know my first Speedy was a 3572.50. My second was a Gemini4, which by the way is the best modern LE in my opinion. I very much look forward to purchasing my next Speedmaster, and I do think I will need to rely heavily on the folks here to make it happen.

    Thanks to all for the well wishes.

    @Taddyangle: I am not sure what comes next. I think I am going to bask in the glory of this one for a few weeks. (Days? Hours!?) It reminds me of that line from The Princess Bride, "I have been in the revenge business so long, now that it's over, I don't know what to do with the rest of my life."

    @Jammer005: I will keep my eyes open for another one.

    Have a great weekend.

    Best,
    Pete

    Congrats! I love the sapphire back. I could stare at that for hours.
