Today we're working on a very cool Omega Speedmaster Reduced Michael Schumacher Racing Edition... yeah, try to say that fast ten times while you're eating an orange.
The watch is in overall very good condition apart from a thoroughly scratched crystal, but the 1141 movement inside really needs a service to provid the performance this watch should have.

Join us for a full service of this modular beast as we find out why this one is called a Speedmaster "Reduced"! We'll also discuss some scientific findings for the correlation between grumpiness and age and how acquiring a number of cheap Casio's could help mitigate mood swings.
