    Those particular watches look great paired together! Did you purchase them from an AD?

    Enjoyed reading your review. I like both watches, but I always felt a comparison between the Rolex Daytona and the Omega Speedmaster might be more apples to apples.

    With the new Sub being a Twinlock crown lets wait 10 more and have the same WR on both the speedy and the sub :D

    Hi, i am new to the forum but what a awsome story to read. I,ve been a Omega collector and seller for about 2 years now and last week i traded my Rolex Air-king and Rolex Date (both vintage) in for a Rolex Submariner 16803 and i have to say I am a bit disapointed. I think I am going to sell it and also try to get my hands on a pre Moon. Thank you for your story!

    The Speed and the Sub are the necessary basis of any watch collection

    I have some speedmaster and a 5513 maxi dial. They are so differents and so nice...
    Impossible to make a choice between them. Two must have!

    A valid analysis, however , owning a sub, I Think the seamaster 300 is eve better comparison, Ans I, as a few other outlets , have actually dated it higher. I have to agree. Like both, but like the 300 a little better.

    This is a review that further cements my suspicion that an original 321 Speedy is perhaps the most satisfying acquisition any watch enthusiast might ever own. Can't even put my finger on exactly why, but maybe it is because the combination of the classic look, and the consistent opinion of the mechanical maturity of the contained movement. I have stopped just short of pulling the trigger on any number of big boy Speedies, and always it was because I knew that it wouldn't quite scratch the itch that a 321 provokes. Of course, as you have noted, the problem is satisfying all the important criteria. I usually try to justify my purchases by making a very good buy, but perhaps with this particular icon it is better to only shop with one of the handful of unquestioned experts on this watch. Thanx for addressing not only the technical aspects of your capture, but also the visceral component as well

    It actually will be returning, we’re just working on a better format for it but I have quite a few articles written and more planned

    Maybe some day I will own a Sub, but at this tiem I won't buy because od the hype. I love my speedmaster(s) though and think both are icons from their brand! Thanky for your story ;)

    If Rolex were to do a ‘NEW321’-like modern version of a historical submariner, which one would most make sense?

    taste may vary... but now that i see the 1680 i find the ghost insert really cool. and the look of the watch can be easily changed by a fully black insert and different leather bands.
