    Tokyo 2020 Speedmaster Panda

    Picked up this panda beauty the other day. Loving it. Bracelet not so much though...no half links available any more (mind blowing). I think this looks best on a strap anyway.

    Some pics....

    Looking good. Though it mostly looks the same, the modern Speedmaster bracelet is horrible. Too heavy, links are longer and thicker, and clasp is the same thickness as a Planet Ocean's. You could always source a 1998/849 and use a half link from the 1610.

    Thanks...been researching this annoying half-link situation. From what I read the pin configuration with the 1610 half-link won't be compatible with the newer bracelet with screws.

    Wow!

    I wasn't a fan of the Mitsukoshi dials at all.

    But when I saw your photos, I liked it. I wasn't sure why, so I looked up the Mitsukoshi dial, and they have much shorter hour markers (they don't extend past the bevel).

    So, the longer hour markers with that slight crease, and the splash of red elements really makes or breaks the Speedy Panda for me :O

    Whoa Merv, man I have never seen that one before and what an amazing piece it is.
    It oozes class from all angles it really is spectacular. I am not sure what else to say but this beats any other brand , the history the movement the pedigree it is all there that makes Omega number 1 .
    So awesome you’ve got your hands on a truly special watch .
    Of course it goes without saying wear it in spectacular health ...

    I'm in love with this one. The way light plays with the white dial with that domed crystal :drool: Almost sprang for if, but I'm trying to add a reverso soon too. Ended up with the classic speedy pro on leather. I agree the bracelet on these isn't great. I do love this gator strap and the OEM clasp is great. Can't complain about the OEM nato as well.

    Cheers and enjoy it!

    Thanks all for the nice words. I’ve always loved the Mitsukoshi panda so when I heard about this last year I very keen to pounce. Put myself on a waiting list in October and picked it up 8 months later. It’s better in person than I was expecting. Very happy.
