    You strike me as a guy that's more concerned about what people say than what you actually like. Why not wait until the watch is announced and you have a chance to look at, and think over your options on this next purchase?

    That’s a fair interpretation on what I’ve heard also. I spoke to a friend who went to the Omega closed doors event. He said he had to leave his phone before being allowed in. He wouldn’t say much other than confirming that it had gold details and that the box was really cool.

    It's a watch forum, asking questions & opinions of others is kinda how it works around here. Some people value the opinions of others.

    Thanks for doing my work for me on this one :)

    Opinions and insights from this group are very much valued and appreciated...and then of course, I, like others here, can make independent decisions like the big boys and girls that we are

    Limited skills? This is tremendous, well done.

    Walked into the NYC OB yesterday and the guy said they don’t have any definitive word on timing, but gave me helpful guidance that “it will definitely be this year” haha great, thanks pal

    Someone else online claims there won't be gold pushers or crown but the hands are likely to be gold, so here's another render attempt...

    It pains me to say this as the Speedy 'Moonwatch' was what made me interested in watches originally, but the sheer number of Speedy models (as well as 'Moonwatch' models) Omega has released and continues to release makes me totally uninterested in the Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Edition as I think they have diluted the brand.
