In Defense of Omega 3313 Movement: Amazing AccuracyDate: May 08, 2010,14:05 PM - (view entire thread)
I recently purchased the Co-axial Enamel Speedmaster. I also own a Speedy from 1972, my very first watch which is very dear to me.
I was very reluctant to purchase this watch. I had read all the negative press about this movement. I read what the late, great Mr. Maddox had to say about the movement.
I purchased the Enamel on March 9, 2010. It has been extremely accurate. It has only lost approximately 3-4 seconds in the 2 months that I have enjoyed wearing it. In my humble opinion, that shows amazing accuracy.
Last year, I was fortunate enough to purchase a Lange Datograph. While the finish and craftsmanship cannot compare between the 2 watches. The Omega kicks the Datograph's rear end in timekeeping. The Dato does not even come close. After getting the Dato regulated that may change, but I rather doubt it.
Of course Purists here can debate whether the Enamel should be called a Speedmaster, etc., I am not addressing that issue here. Just the accuracy.
People have been referring to the initial problems that this movement has had. I am glad that Omega has resolved them. And I wonder how many people have given their opinion based upon first hand experience as opposed to referring to out dated reviews of the movement.
