Ticking Lemons 2nd Entrant? Omega's 50th Speedmaster


Discussed before and now the final horror is here. How can Omega have so, so, missed this once in a lifetime chance?

And quite how Omega think they can put a manual wind converted 33xx in this as a 'tribute' to a spaceflight qualified ancestor is beyond comic ironic belief (version R).

And you can forget this being a limited piece. You can guarantee that this movement will become serial faster than you can believe. Not that you'd want it anyway, least of all at the fantasy prices.

Prices of 321s can only go stratospheric, but fortunately Omega still make a little bit of history in the authentic flight qualified piece, 3570.50.00, and that still makes a lot of sense. As I think does the aesthetic of the '57 re-issue for broad arrow hand fans.

Must say I'm disappointed , I had almost pre reserved one sight unseen , glad I didn't , especially at the mooted 5500 pound sterling price point , think I'll buy an Apollo 15 or something instead .....
