    As someone who is very quick to jump on what you believe to be sexist comments or inappropriate names you appear not to mind calling other fellow collectors derogatory names.
    Do you know what a dweeb is?

    Dweeb:
    1. a boring, studious, or socially inept person.;)

    .... My wife could have said this "All speedmasters look the same"... fortunately she has no clue of speedmasters and so she doesn't recognize if I bought a new one :p;)

    Not really, I have noticed that you have used the same expression in other threads.
    What I don't understand is how you are so quick to jump on others but apparently OK for you.

    Nice of you to speak on behalf of the rest of the community. I didn't consider it to be baiting but maybe humorous. I don't think I need to be told to lighten up.
    Once again as you have previously positioned yourself to be the moral policeman calling out any indiscretion or misguided statement I don't consider your terminology appropriate. That is OK, we can agree to disagree and I would rather this not go to a locked thread.

    My first Speedmaster. Then I got hooked. Im not blaming anyone here or OF...but you all are big league enablers.

    Nothing better than waking up and winding the crown on a Speedmaster.

    I own many Speedmasters, but not a single one is automatic.

    Picked this one up last year off Craigslist for $225*. At that price I will gladly wear a Speedmaster :D

    *Truth be told the thing needs a service. It runs but stops sometimes.

    A good friend of mine, a police sergeant at the time, once took me to a grocery store where they sold these sad, cellophane wrapped egg salad sandwiches on white bread, for $1.25, a considerable bargain in our neck of the woods. He thought it was a great thing because they were sooo cheap. They were repulsive looking, stacked in an open refrigerator case, no dates on them — who knew how long they’d been there.

    I asked him: “If you were to pay for sex, would you look for the least expensive? I don’t think so. Why would you put cheap, crummy food in your body if you didn’t have to?”

    It’s gotta be pleasing to my eyes to go on my wrist. Period.

    And, I’m sorry to say, those Reduceds are not to my taste. Honestly, among all the other crimes that Omega has committed against its Speedmaster brand, I consider those Reduceds one of the most troubling.

    But, that’s just me.

    Haha although when they're all stacked together in standardised photos like this, they do start to look a bit same-ish...
