Why I Didn’t Buy Another Omega Speedmaster Or Seamaster – Unboxing A WW2 Era 30T2 Pilot Watch

In today’s video I share an unboxing and initial impressions of my latest acquisition. After being heavily inspired by the Omega CK2129 featured in the movie Dunkirk by Christopher Nolan, I decided that my next watch would not be another Seamaster or Speedmaster, but something from the World War II era.
As a massive fan of aviation, especially from the pre-jet age, the watches of that period are also equally fascinating and horoligically important, so it was only right that I added one to my collection.

Hello TGV, I enjoy watching your videos and find them very informative. I am looking to purchase a used Omega Speedmaster Professional. I’m wondering where to to look for reputable dealers as there aren’t really any where I live, (way upstate, NY). This would be my first luxury watch purchase and could use all the help I can get. Any guidance you could offer would be much appreciated. Thanks.

TGV I don’t know if this is the best place to ask questions, anyway, if I purchased a watch from say the 40s, is there a way to learn it’s exact date and place of manufacture?

David Hiley says:

It’s beautiful. Give me a shout when you are ready to sell!

Talha Hassan says:

Awesome video as always. I had a question to ask, I recently saved up to buy my dream watch the cartier tank but now I saw the ballon de bleu. Can you tell me which is a better deal ?

James P says:

Seriously, that watch found you. It has a hart and a will to live long after so many years of service. Lucky man, your blessed. Your signature watch.
