Another Speedy Tuesday teaser posted on IG, apparently in Ultraman form. :salute:

I wasn't gonna do it, as I like the original Speedy Tuesday watch more. But this thing has a DON bezel, and a true step dial, as well as the beveled subdials, and old-school Omega logo and Speedmaster font. Winner in my book. I don't understand why these don't come on bracelet, though.

Regular Speedy pro case, so it shouldn't be difficult to source a bracelet.

No, and an 1171 would be perfect on this one. It's just that having to spend $500 for a bracelet after dropping $7100 on the watch just seems so wrong.

Exactly the Speedmaster I want. Way out of my range right now, though.

Love it but just can’t do 7100 for a speedy and the lack of bracelet also bothers me but it’s a beauty

+1, that is a hefty premium over the Speedy Pro on bracelet which has an MSRP of $5250. But a cool watch, congrats to everyone here who reserved one.

All numbers are reserved, but there's still a chance to obtain a number by subscribing to our waiting list.

We will let you know immediately if a Limited Edition Speedmaster 42 mm "Ultraman" becomes available for purchase.

well crap - I thought too long about it

I like it except that the UV Ultraman logo doesn’t speak to me. My guess is a quick sell out by speculators again.

Considering that a regular Speedy is 3400-3500 with your name on the card from TRF this 7100 dollar price becomes insane since I'm sure there's no discount to be had on this one. You could probably get those mods done for less than 1K :)

This watch is the only thing appearing on IG feed since this morning :lol:

I like it, but I agree that for the price, bracelet should be included.

Although I like it, Omega should re-release the white dial Snoopy and/or the Panda Speedy Tuesday (or an inverse version).

That is what I was thinking. $7100 gets you two Speedy Pro's. One to keep original and one to Mod.

Except this one will be “worth” 10k as soon as it is delivered.

Sure if you buy to speculate instead of wear. Shoot I'd have a totally different collection if I were after making money on watches :)

Apparently it sold out in 1 hour, 53 minutes and 17 seconds. Not bad to rake in $14M.
