New Speedmaster

Post by CGSshorty » Thu Jan 12, 2017 8:00 pm

I'm sure this will go over like a fart in church for Speedy purists, but I kind of love this.

It's not terrible, and they got the date window right.

I like it. A mixed colored version in what looks like the 44.25mm case.

I just read the whole thing. Nice. New Cal 9900, lower crystal height, larger subdials. Subtle improvements. But will the changes sans colors carry over to the standard and other models?

I would think they would at least carry over to all Co-ax versions?

I like new speedies and the size is right. Speedy pro is the smallest 42 ever

I like it.

I think Omega is taking a cue from AP and Hublot and their sport watches lines... doing lots of colorful versions. Nothing wrong with that in my opinion... I just hope they keep around their classic models too.

Still would love to grab a DSOTM or Apollo 11 45th anniversary.

I like the color combo, but at nearly $7800 I'm not sure it's worth the premium over the Moonwatch.

I kind of like it too... would prefer a reversed colour scheme on the hands though.

Not a fan or hater of it. I do like how they are making them thinner. Would like to see that carry over to more of their offerings

Where? Used? The lowest I've seen the plain Jane base model at Jomashop was about $5200.

I still prefer the style and size of the standard professional, but this looks nice.

Love the look.

Hate the size (would be fine at 42mm) and the price (nearly $8k -- WTF?).
