    Wearing the Speedmaster I started with in 1982, my -74 with one of those early serial number 861 movements. Wore it when wife and I were married over 35 years ago. Timed her contractions with our first born using it. Might have been $250, $275 when I bought it used back then. Why did I stop with only one?

    With ‘all the pretty watches’ I own these days, I rarely wear it anymore. I may be willing to occasionally wear an 861 Speedmaster and a DNN, while not as appealing as a DON, will do in a pinch. And I promise not to become so attached to straight lug Speedmasters that I never wear twisted lug ones.

    But I am seriously addicted to AML dials.

    Anyway, my first, which I’m wearing today. It keeps better time than most of the 321s, all having been serviced recently.

    I'm glad to read of the method for setting the watch. It is too cumbersome to take seriously. Date/date doesn't really do it for me but otherwise the dial is quite nice, understated and neatly executed. Don't suppose Omega of the era offered a similar dial as a time-only mechanical watch?
