Huge congrats Carl!! I haven’t seen the new watch in the metal but during research for the video I did on it, Omega really did a super job updating. It’s an all too common theme of watch companies ruining their icons. Omega seem to have finally learned and this release plus the trilogy are very faithful jobs.My biggest surprise in a long, long time. I visited the Omega Boutique here in Vancouver on Tuesday, just to have a visit with my friend Jorge. I really don't venture downtown much during the pandemic. We always discuss all watches, all brands and models. I happened to ask if he had seen the newly updated Speedmaster Moonwatch Professional. He told me yes, and that they had received one each of the Hesalite/Solid Caseback model and the Sapphire Sandwich model. Having owned a Speedy Moonwatch previously, I sort of hesitated when he asked if I would like to see one. And I have a recently acquired FOIS, which I found my favorite Speedy to date. In spite of my misgivings about the Speedy, I was absolutely blown away by the looks and the multitude of updates Omega has made to this watch. I went back twice to the Boutique to take another look, and today I finally purchased the watch. Thanks mainly to the new bracelet, it is likely the most comfortable watch I have owned with a stainless steel bracelet. The entire watch, with the subtle changes to case and dial, is absolutely stunning. That is likely it for me, more than enough for the entire year!
