    Hi All,

    Normally not the kind of person to announce a new item as I’m simply not like that, however am far too excited to keep this too myself.
    Today I bought an Omega Speedmaster co-axial after much saving up using my weekend job whilst being a student, it’s finally paid off!

    The news now is, has anyone got any strap ideas for it? Any photos already of it on a different strap?


    Secondly, the rotor is quite loud and the rotor almost moves freely and sticks when it reaches just above where you’d expect it to sit, is that just the normal winding motion? It keeps time very well so not too sure if that’s just how it winds automatically.


    Either way very happy with the watch!

    I don't know about speedy's, but most rotors should spin freely. Is it brand new?

    Congratulations on the Speedy co-axial!

    The 9300 movement is a bit louder than some of the others and it gave me a brief pause with my first one too. However, that in itself is completely normal as is the free movement of the rotor. Are you noticing the rotor actually getting stuck as you move the watch around or is it just moving around towards the downward position with gravity?

    As to strap ideas, I think the Speedy looks pretty great with just about anything. That's one of the things that makes it such a great watch imo. Have you played around with the Omega strap options on their website? If not, here's a link to your specific watch: https://www.omegawatches.com/watch-...co-axial-chronograph-44-25-mm-31130445101002/

    Playing around from the above link may help give you some ideas.

    Hi, thanks for your responses!
    I will book the watch in for a service in a month, want to get some wear out of it first, its keeping time well so not an alarming issue. As for the 'sticking' rotor. I took it to my local AD today and they said it was fine just some normal winding actions especially when the watch was nearly fully wound.
