    Uh oh!

    I hadn't been tempted by anything from Omega at Basel until I saw that Apollo XV. I do like the dial, hands, markers and bezel but everyone knows how I feel about "non-display backs". What appears to be a "gold and gray" motif is nice however.

    But why an Apollo XV commemorative? Obviously this is the 35th anniversary of the the mission. Not such a big deal but then I remembered seeing an interview with Gene Cernan a year or so ago when he was doing an Omega tour with a mockup of the Lunar rover. Bingo! The rover was first used on the Apollo XV mission. So this watch is to commemorate the first use of the Lunar rover? OK I guess, but I think my PW2 commemorative will be more astrologically and horologically significant.

    But I do like the "gold and gray"! Maybe that will be a future PW?

    Thanks for all the photos BTW. The only thing worse on those bejeweled PO's would have been a Rolex leopard skin strap. I'm just glad Rolex did it first else Bienne may have tried it. :-D

    Wow, thanks very much for sharing! Some really interesting new models.

    Who would have thought that this great 70s design would reemerge?!?!

    Seamaster pics borrowed from Chuck.

    Good stuff, John. I have to admit, I think the gold on graphite looks pretty sharp, too.

    Percy, I forgot, but it was interesting to see the black Planet Ocean has got orange numbers too, as an option

    Thanks for sharing pcs
    I dislike some models in here:
    -jewellery PO
    -jewellery Rattrapante Deville Coax
    Some models who are greatly designed but with which I have movement doubts:
    the P0 chrono , the speedy rattrapante and Deville Coax rattrapante
    Some models that I consider as ununderstandable: the speedy date with dial colors of vintage seamaster models and the chrono zl32 which is meant for regates but I don't like pushers at the left and the barely legible configuration.
    I prefer vintage models to all what I have seen here, sorry but that is my opinion.

    regards

    georges

    Hey, guys and gals!

    Don't place any orders until you see PW2.

    PW2 will be a true commemorative although the anniversary date will not end in a "5" or "0".

    And I assure you, it will not have a "non-display back".
