    Sorry not an Omega, not fancy, picked up for less than the price of lunch, and it is what I am wearing. I really have no idea if it ever was really "Railroad Approved" but I liked it so I bought it.

    It is not a Speedy but is my very first Omega. Bought in 1987, almost destroyed in many places around the world (including Antartica) but always surviving. Two years ago rebuilt... I Love it.

    It's still Speedy Tuesday! :thumbsup:

    Speedy Gonzales says it's time to make the donuts so that the little Mad Dogs can receive the more expensive UHG anthracite coal this Christmas. :thumbsup:

    I had a '72! My first major purchase... and I was 17... I was supposed to buy a 'practical' car, but just like with watches...:whistling:

    Lots of memories with this one. Here's the only photo of it I can find:

    Hey @Mad Dog -- here's the stuff you've been looking for. It's meta-anthracite that I picked up on the island of Sumatra. Just e-mail the photo to your kids.

    Amazing! I LOVE those thick stripes, wow! They really accentuate that beautiful curve that always drew me to that car!

    I was just shy of 19 (granted it was 1993...) Mine was white (someone had repainted it from a beautiful dark/brick red) and, like you, I was supposed to buy something a "bit" more practical. Car engine would automatically turn itself off in November and would start magically right up the first nice day in March. It was so strange. For the life of me, I cannot find a single picture of her. [emoji19]

    So glad I added the case back. Well worth the expense.
