    +1 for hesalite. Sapphire looks too thick in my opinion.

    Hesalite +++

    I used to be OCD about scratches.. now once a month or so I bust out the polywatch and give it a 5 minutes rub.. brand new again under any lighting condition. Go with the real deal

    Look at both in person. I was turned off the sapphire due to what I have read but seeing them both in person I didn't mind the milky circle at all.

    I wanted a nice first watch and the aesthetics stood out to me even though I didn't know about the history. I also enjoy seeing how things work so being able to see the mechanisms in action was a big plus.

    Its like buying any other Omega watch to me, Dark side of the moon stands out even if it doesn't have any historical event linked to it.

    Went with the sapphire.

    For a one watch guy probably sapphire. I have many so hesalite is a change and adds diversity to my collection

    Interesting. I also think it matters what you do with your watch. I need to Polywatch once every 5 years or so. So I’ve done it twice in 12 years of wearing my Speedy. I guess I don’t bang mine around much.

    + Sapphire for me. Being able to see that movement plus no scratches is huge. It's the same Speedy brought to "modern standards".

    One thing I could never understand is why Omega couldn’t equip the Sapphire sandwich with a sapphire crystal that is more domed and replicates the hesalite. I mean they’re obviously capable of doing it; they did it on the 60th anniversary Railmaster reissue.

    Hesalite all the way. It's not as good but it's how they were.

    Amen, brother! Oris has a beautiful domed sapphire on their Divers 65 with no hint of a milky ring. I have no idea why Omega doesn't do the same.
