I am sometimes asked why I purchased an Omega Speedmaster Professional Replica Watches, a hand-wound and rather plain chronograph wristwatch. Usually those who ask are neither watch collectors nor interested in horology; rather they are only casually interested in watches as jewelry or just consider them an appliance to tell them how long before they should be somewhere or be doing something. This is not meant as criticism; for the watch-loving community is relatively small and those who are asking may have interests of their own that I would likewise fail to appreciate.
Now if you’re a collector or watch aficionado, owning a Cheap Omega Replica is almost mandatory. In this case we are discussing the hand-wound version and not the later variations with more modern automatic co-axial escapement movements.There have been changes to Speedmaster Professionals both inside and out for sure as improvements were made; but, most were minor and barely noticeable externally. Internally, a major change was made in 1968 with the change in the movement from caliber 321 to 861; nevertheless, the Omega Replica remains true to its original form and function to this day.
So how did I choose a Speedmaster to purchase? Of course as with any collectable there are ranges of age, condition, desirability, and cost.Therefore, budget was a key factor narrowing down my range of choices as I did not want to spend more than the cost of a brand new Omega Replica Watches Speedmaster Professional. Since I decided I preferred the look of vintage Speedmasters, this meant that I would be purchasing something in all likelihood newer than 1972, certainly newer than 1968, and it would be a watch with the 861 movement rather than the 321 movement of the pre-1968 Speedmasters and Speedmaster Professionals.
