    Just cannot get over the subdial - Everything else about the watch is gorgeous

    On the positive at least I dodged that awkward moment with the wife trying to explain to her why I needed another Omega lol..

    I am sure you're not alone there. I am exactly in the same position and relieved to certain extent.

    I had high hopes with this watch but that 9 o'clock dial (mis)adventure ruined an otherwise very beautiful design.
    You can't buy love; but you pay heavily for it.

    Should have the foot print on the 9 sub dial & the lander/Armstrong on case back.

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

    Still, nice bracelet.
    I would say that the photo of buzz is iconic and is seen in alot of publications about the first landing. Who knows for sure...jmho..

    I just finished watching the story behind the making of the Speedmaster Apollo 11 50th Anniversary and I am beginning to really like (love) the watch. The 11 marker on the dial was a novelty but nonetheless important. Am glad that Watch Advisor was able to interview Jean Claude Monachon of OMEGA in depth.

    Thanks very much for the link. For an old guy like me, who also watched the moon landing in 1969 with his Dad, this video is even more special. And it does convince me even more that I did the right thing by ordering this watch. It is good to these this video with two gentlemen having so much fine while doing the presentation. The way watch collecting should be.

    Cheers,
    Carl

    I love this watch. It is the Speedy I have been waiting for and I am number 1 on the list at my AD. It pays to build a relationship with your AD.

    How hard is it to get this piece do people think? Will resale value of this watch go nuts?
