reading the comments, most of them express shock at the price, seriously if you can't afford it, there are other choices
if you buy a moonwatch with an 1863 it's not bad, but people complain on that too
so here we have an unusual watch, it hearkens back, but more important is the effort involved, according to Omega the movement is hand assembled the old fashioned way
if you want a Rolex that's your business, if you want a Heuer that's your business, if you want an Omega that's their business
if you walked into a luxury car dealership and went on about the price, you would seem a bit out of place, oh yeah this is a blog no shame here
I bought an Audi many years ago, a few friends mocked me, now they are driving them after driving mine, but not all, to that I say to each their own
wristwatches in this day ad age are nothing but jewelry, your phone has a clock and almost everyone carries one
I bet they sell all they make, not sure how many of the platinum mode they made and how that sale went
enough of my thoughts,,,, for now lol
wow I rambled on without much direction LOL
This is nothing more than a marketing ploy by Omega.

I believe they are also making a 42mm version with the 321 movement.
It's literally the exact same scenario with Rolex steel sport watches. There's no reason they HAVE to limit the supply of them, but they choose to keep it well below demand which in turn increases the market price for the watches.
Actually I would like to see a Speedmaster Pro with a 3861 movement as well.
It's a beautiful watch, and has some of the elements -- stepped dial, ceramic, maybe the 321 -- that I'd like to see on my Speedy Pro.
But I don't want any of those elements enough to pay the extra 11-12k for them, especially that cal 321, given the plethora of Speedy LEs that I prefer. But I'm not a 321/ Ed White fetishist, and therefore nowhere near Omega's target market for this piece. if I had unlimited funds for watches I could definitely make space for this in my vault, and I look forward to reading about this new release from those who've tried and/or owned one, but it lacks wow factor for me.
no what I'm saying is the watch is worth having, the cost is affected by the hand assembly
if you do the numbers to make a movement robotically, it's actually pretty significant
the 321 is too small of a production to actually set up a facility for that
there are tens of thousands of the other movements built, that definitely justifies it
