I know this firsthand you see. I never liked the look of the Daytona with the steel bezel so I never considered it as my go-to chronograph. Now that I own a Daytona Ceramic, I don't give my Speedmaster a second look. The NASA backstory is cool but it doesn't trump the Rolex brand.
And that is a tidy way to summarize the discussion. Omega is cool but it's not a Rolex. It's a watch that can please owners who aren't trying to impress anyone or reward themselves with items of lasting significance.
