People complain about mass market movements being built Henry Ford style by technicians not watchmakers, then people compain about a company using a single watchmaker and using it in marketing.
Another thing to note is the 1000-2000 number is not just the EW Speedys it is the number of 321s Omega expects to make. Omega is going to case them in other watches besides the Platinum and EW.
While I am a little suprised at the price, I do think they will sell.

I stopped in to the Omega AD (factory botique) near me again today to look around again. I almost felt guilty going in time after time without buying. Im glad i turned around while walking (sneeking) past, the draw was too much to resist. I do want to ad my first chrono to the collection and keep going back to the speedy for a few years now while always buying something else, (Rolex and a recent VC overseas) I had a good long and sincere chat with the SA/WIS He did say the new 321 coming out is pretty much spoken for by VIPs and the first year there will only be approx. 1000 pieces as there are only a few select watchmakers who will be building them and them only...A lot of factory pride is going into this Ed White edition. Talking more and asking questions of the orig. hesalite moonwatch, bracelet fitting etc. He (once i mentioned bracelet) brought up for me to wait for summer as they will also (under the radar) compared to the EW have another hesalite moonwatch coming out, the same but with a newer designed clean and tapered bracelet and also a few tweeks to the movement. Now I'm getting excited, anyway he said he'd call me with the first news he hears and leaving with a couple books i told him I'll be back now bugging him while i wait. I'm really glad i stopped in now and my love for Omega is building again after being disappointed with the one previous Omega i had. BTW.. I thought this new EW was just another hyped LE, boy was i wrong and learned a lot today. I know now you guys waiting for this are really going to be getting something truly special... Cheers and Enjoy...
