Incoming: Speedmaster X-33 Skywalker

Post by Blackdog » Wed May 25, 2016 11:33 pm

Being the mechanical watch die-hard I am I never thought I would be getting one of these... But the opportunity came and I jumped on it.

I believe it is a good complement to my Speedy collection of two Pros ("Hello Houston" and Apollo XV 35th) and a Bienne restored c1045 from 1976.

Very interesting watch, functions well thought and incredibly lightweight.

Enjoying it very much.

I had an older version and loved...I'm sure this would be no different.
Looks great!

I love this and the X33 line. I almost bought a 2nd Gen a couple weeks ago but just couldn't justify it at the time. Trying to position myself for when the time is right.

If it was the one recently sold here it was almost mine.

I call dibs if you ever decide to move it. Hopefully i'll be ready if that day ever comes. :rolleyes: Sounds like it may be a keeper for you.

I should've bought one of these ten years ago. I love this thing and use it regularly. I haven't found a function that I haven't used.

Nice :clap:

I go through periods of wanting one of these or the B Aerospace; I like the design of these more, though :thumbsup:

They're great watches. Have a friend who has one and uses it for his work and I've always been jealous of it :shrug:

Hi Luis,

I've been looking at these, and playing with the iPad app. Am I missing something, or is there no day (Mon, Tues, etc) display?
If someone tells you "There's no such thing as a stupid question", have him list a watch for sale on WUS.

I saw one of these at an Omege boutique a few weeks ago and thought it was outstanding. Congratulations! :thumbsup:
