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!
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 ! ! ! !
