    Found this old photo. I was six months into my watch obsession - starting in early spring 2006. Which makes me realize I am celebrating 10 years of madness this spring...

    Is that the original Omega shark skin strap on the speedy?

    Not a bad way to start a collection. Congrats on a decade!

    In another decade or two, even your "modern" watches will be vintage!

    Happy WIS-day. ::psy::

    No - I do have a 16600 Seadweller but not this one and I have a Speedmaster but a Speedyorite. From the moment I sold that Heuer I have mourned it. I was an idiot. Trying not to make the same mistake again - I have difficulties selling watches since then...

    Hahaha! A person with moderator skills has added a picture to my first post. I am flattered. I consider it a jubilee gift.
