    The 45th is stunning. That rose gold looks great.

    The new bracelet is a nice touch. Otherwise, it's a wash.

    Also, why the weird look on the endlink of the new Speedy? Bad stock photo.

    45th would definitely be better if it had a full titanium bracelet to match the case

    45th, I think that the titanium case and the sedna gold details look stunning together. In addition to this, it is way more classy than the 50th anniversary.

    I used to own the 45th. It’s a watch I regret selling but the main reason I sold it was that there was no bracelet for it. I spent a ton of money on the Ti X-33 bracelet but the end links didn’t fit well enough for my taste. I got disgusted and sold the whole thing.

    It was too dressy for casual and too casual for a suit. Just couldn’t do a NATO to the office.

    Lost a lot of money in that transaction, it was an expensive lesson.

    I prefer The 45th as an overall package. The 45th is more sober, understated elegance, and currently it's the first and only Speedmaster Pro in full brushed Titanium. The bezel is also ceramic + gold, the hands also in gold. The dial can look black, grey, chocolate, charcoal, depend on the lighting. It's fun to wear.
    The only downside is the subdials is bit hard to see in certain lights, but it's there when you need it.

    The 50th , IMO, only win in the new caliber. The rest of it is just comparable to the 45th, except its in steel, which makes the 45th more unique.

    Omega also missed the opportunity to include micro adjustment in the 50th, and the power reserve still 48 hr.

    Of course, i maybe biased, because i own the 45th :)

    The endlinks actually fits well in term of size (very little play), but the position is not flush with the inner lug. Not bother me at all because it looks so beautiful in the 45th. Smooth as silk, light as feather, very comfortable. No to to mention the resale value has gone up since 2017 (not that i will sell it, it's a keeper).
