Hate the size (would be fine at 42mm) and the price (nearly $8k -- WTF?).
It's expensive, but that machined ceramic case is special. Few manufacturers are doing that.

I'm not a chrono guy, but I like it. Proportions are spot-on and dial is very legible. :thumbsup:

I like that the time-of-day hands are white while the chronograph hands are orange. Seiko did something similar with their high-end Flightmaster...

...but failed to follow the same convention with their lower-priced quartz chronographs.

The speedy is my current grail and I know less and less about it each day.

Thinner display back sounds promising. Wish they'd release a picture or spec though. One of the problematic issues with with the 9300 based speedmasters.

I'd hit it.

It's NOT a substitute for the Pro, so IMO is aimed at those guys who collect Omega specifically. And yeah, the price NIB is nuts. But it's a nice watch for sure... captures some of the essence of the racing dial pieces w/o being over the top with the colors.

The color orange used in dials has a long tradition so it is not bad at all. The price is though...:(

Grey dial version also looks nice. Surprised these aren't popular.

I’m not surprised at all.
