The speedy reduced in my opinion is a perfect easy to wear moon watch style. Here's mine
The larger manual wind has about as much in common with the actual moon speedy as the reduced as the case and movement are different on both It's all about personal preference though and neither has a date unless you go for the later coaxial auto full size versions.
Sounds normal to me for reasons others have stated. The majority of my collection are automatics and I find most start when shaken and build up reserve while being worn. The exceptions are my IWC Flieger that needs to be hand wound to start but then runs and my Omega PO that starts when shaken but doesn't build up enough reserve unless started by hand winding.
Anybody else been watching the footie? Opinions?
Seems a bit on the dull side so far, very cagey games, neither side wanting to take a chance or three, at least not from the teams you would expect it from.
France, Germany and Belgium all playing today so hope get a couple of decent games to watch
