    You sold your Sub?!??! What!?!?! Why??? Explain all!!
    Ha! Difficult to explain. Sometimes these things just don't make sense. After I had the Sub for a few weeks, I just knew my heart was not in it. I hand delivered it to a good friend of mine who wants one really badly, and can't even get on a waiting list. He paid me full price plus tax exactly as I paid. He is ecstatic! I am happy for him, he will get far more pleasure out of it than I would have.

    I went out and bought myself a new Oris Divers 65 to replace the one I sold last year. I regretted it, and am very happy to have it on my wrist. And also to have an extra 7 grand!

    Must admit, I am not crazy about the subdial either. Maybe in real life I will like it better. I have to say, though, for sentimental reasons the watch seems to have "Me" written all over it. I am going to take a closer look at it on my iPad with the higher res screen.

    Yes, love that case back. I would rather have that than a sapphire case back, although in the case of this new manual wind movement it would be kinda nice to see it.

    Cheers,
    Carl

    When you know, you know. At least you've had the chance to own one for a while The 65 is a beauty. If it came in a no date version I would pick one up.

    I'm sure Omega will sell all these 50th Speedies, but it isn't for me

    There's a contradiction here for me. The back quotes Neil Armstrong's famous words which he spoke when first stepping onto the Moon - and yet the image on the dial shows... ...Buzz Aldrin. Why? Well, because Armstrong wasn't wearing a Speedmaster.

    Sorry, am just a little jaded by the endless Speedy LEs.

    Still, nice bracelet.

    The question remains, try to get the bracelet for my speedy asap, or wait and see if the speedy pro gets updated with the new movement and new bracelet?

    I think Omega hit a home run. Beautiful. The 3861 is METAS approved, beautiful dial & caseback and the bezel is ceramic with the classic accent over the "e" along with the dot over the 90 and under the 70. Great job Omega and they won't last at the AD.
