I have a FOIS, I prefer it on a bracelet (it's on a vintage JB Champion) rather than the rather cheap O.E.M strap. It's 39mm, but it wears large.

I recently joined the "Omega Speedmaster" club myself, just last week.

I am pretty much OVER Rolex these days, they just don't seem that special to me anymore.

I wore an 18k & SS Rolex Datejust for about 8 years but EVERYBODY has one.

They are so common in my area here in Houston that they call them a Texas Timex, they are really that common.

I wanted something different!

I shopped around for a few weeks and soon as I saw this one I simply HAD to own it!

Ref. 3513.50

Here in Texas I don't like to wear my WWI antique trench watches out of the house during the Summer months, it's way too hot down here and the bands get messed up quickly.

So, I bought this Speedy to fill my needs.

Absolutely LOVE this watch ! ! ! !

I highly recommend the Speedy. I have 2 1969s with the 861. Here's one I'm wearing today.

Did you consider the FOIS.

It's modelled on the earlier "straight lug" speedy and scrapes in under the 40mm size.

Edit

Doh, missed the post above. Sigh.
