If you are going to tell other people spend their money on, you may want to be taking your own advice. FYI, the custom leather strap on my watch was $200.
Ehhhhh. The Racing Autos have a very poor resale value. These pop up on 2nd hand market for $1200 for the previous gen and around $1800 for the current gen, in like new condition. Also they are very hard to move as no one wants them.

This one does have the newer Omega Calibre 3330, so closer to the $1800 end. But it is still nothing more than a 7750 ETA movement with co-axial escapement added.

The Tin Tin is the only Speedy Racing worth buying. If you are going to buy an Omega, just spend the extra money and get a real one.
In what world is a $2600 item only for 'high rollers'. No one bats an eye at $1000 cell phones, $1500 laptops, $2000 TVs, $1000 cameras, $600 graphics cards, etc.... Items that retain almost no value after 5 years. A $3300 Omega Speedmaster Professional will still be worth $3000-3200 in 15 years from now (adjusting for inflation).

In the end, all that matters is that Slickdeals is about getting items you want for less. If someone wants this watch and this deal saves them money, then peoples option on the item necessity don't matter.

This is a great watch for a great price. I wore one for a few years and it has been, by far, my most accurate timepiece yet. Accurate to about +1.7s/d, but of course this could very with each watch.

Essentially the movement is a chronometer grade ETA 7750 with quite a few upgrades. Omega added their coaxial escapement along with a silicone mainspring and column wheel.

Why did I sell it? It wore a little small for my tastes. This is a 40mm but wore closer to a 38mm. If my wrist was 6.5" or smaller, it would have been a better fit for me.

It is racing style version of the Speedmaster Professional. https://www.omegawatches.com/watc...423001004/

It was a normal production watch, then Omega got sued and had to stop production, making it an unplanned limited edition.

What makes them 'racing'? Why is it so much cheaper than a Speedmaster pro?

For the money, I would rather get a vintage Datejust.

Technically ALL Speedmasters are 'racing' as there is where the Speedmaster originally got it's roots before it became the Moonwatch. But once it became the Moonwatch, that is what it was to be know as, forever.

Now the racing versions are just stripped down Speedmasters with flashier dials. They remove everything that makes them a Moonwatch (the 1861 manual movement and hesalite) and throw in a cheap modified ETA movement and sapphire. They are very similar to the Speedy Reduced.

The the history, the icon, the prestige, etc... that make people desire a Speedy Pro and keep the value constant are all missing. Since '67 until today, the Moonwatch is nearly unchanged. The Racing versions change all the time and have no real history to speak of.

The new racing with 3300 movement is a good value for the money. It comes with the new bracelet design, sapphire, co-axial escapement and COSC certification. I just do not see $2600 as a good price. Look for a LNIB used version for much less.

They pop up randomly one WUS, Timezone, Ebay and Omega forums. The lower end are the previous gen with rubber straps.

I was bidding on a used version of this watch last month. Was trying to get it for $1500-1600, but it went higher than I expected.

Looks like this one sold for $1800. Wouldn't a newer one with a bracelet sell for more than the older one with a rubber strap? Maybe $2600 isn't so bad for a new one with a bracelet?
