Hello everyone, I literally haven't even had this for 24 hours yet, and pardon my pun, but I'm over the moon at finding it, tucked away in a box filled with 20 years of meaningless bank receipts at my Grandmother's house, away from the sticky fingers of a few relatives who have taken many family heirlooms recently, as she passed away and I have been helping my mother get everything in order. It amazed both of us that this exists - neither of us had any idea my Grandfather owned this watch, let alone it being my dream watch. A little back story on who owned this Omega, my grandfather: He worked for the NSA from before it even was the NSA, straight out of high school. All we know is that he worked in cryptography for over 30 years, traveled often under assumed names with the rank of "General", was a S.U.S.L.O., and outside of his cold war era "spy" job, was a wonderful family man. He retired in 1979, and in the photo you can see the Speedmaster on his wrist. He passed in 1984, when I was still too young to have an adult conversation with the man. I have no idea when/why he purchased this (obviously in 1969 or shortly thereafter!) watch. This is my DREAM watch, supplanting my "not quite but as close as I can get" Bulova Accutron Spaceview (which I'll probably now sell, since I now have THE Omega watch!). The bottom button doesn't seem to do anything (nothing resets) and the band is way too small for my wrist, so I need to get more links, or as has been already suggested, a different band that is less-fragile than this 1039/516. But first up, I need to get this serviced! I have a name of someone in Philly I will take it to, unless someone here has a reputable name in Baltimore, where I live? Hopefully nothing is too amiss inside. And don't worry - I am not getting it polished or changed in any way unless I need to for functional reasons. The crystal has a gouge in the left side by the 3pm position, but it seems to have been polished smooth and if it doesn't affect the seal, I'm cool. So enough of my babble - here's some pics!
