Re: New Speedy preview Baselworld - video DLC?

Well it had the desired effect. It teased me. I want to know more.

Another Speedy special but it does look very special. :)

From the limited view on video that looks spectacular!! Ceragold or liquidmetal? Looks like it could be a stunner.

Dark side of the moon?
I'm really curious about the face material... looks great in the teaser.

...But that "dark side" quote is a little too "swatch group", and not enough "omega" for me... hopefully they don't run with that too much...

It looks all dark with indented markers - no paint.

Could be very exciting...

Re: New Speedy preview Baselworld - video DLC?

Ok, here's a far fetched theory: Pink Floyd's album Dark Side of the Moon came out in '73. And I think the 'lost' Apollo 18 mission was 1973 or thereabouts- very debatable what happened (if anything) but if you believe Hollywood the moon had a very dark side indeed.... 40 years ago. So could be an Apollo 18 le?

Even I think this is unlikely!! But a pretty cool concept (I want it on the strength of the Floyd reference alone ;))

Re: New Speedy preview Baselworld - video DLC?

I'm getting no joy from Omega this new-watch season: Über-thick 42mm PO Ti LM; Big and thick PO GMT; Cool anti-magnetic AT, but with a hideous "bumble-bee" seconds hand; and now a coal-black Speedie with "Dark Side of the Moon" etched on the caseback.

At the rate they're going, the "enhancements" this year to the beloved SMP line will be outright discontinuation. o|

Looks like it's liquidmetal with gold hands/indices. Not really a fan. Probably comes on a black leather strap as well.

Re: New Speedy preview Baselworld - video DLC?

My guess is a polished/brushed black ceramic case, maybe making at least one innovation something of a surprise for Baselworld. That would be rather cool in itself.

But seriously, why the goofy name? Is it a 70s rock band homage, or are they yet again stretching the NASA link to breaking point?

The Speedie 9300 DSOTM. Oh dear.

Re: New Speedy preview Baselworld - video DLC?

My first reaction: OMG, it's beautiful. Then I thought also that it may be the same treatment as the PO Liquidmetal LE! I can't wait to see this one!

With all the new models coming out lately, I'm suprised they have anything left for Basel 2013! I have also been thinking lately, with the introduction of the anti-magnetic movement, if a new Railmaster, possibly around 39mm, might be coming. Just hoping is all, but that would definitely be "IT" for me if that happened.

Lots of excitement to come looks like!

Cheers,
Carl

I really like the idea of Dlc'd 9300, just wish it didn't have a gloss dial (as appears from the video).

Re: New Speedy preview Baselworld - video DLC?

The "Dark side of the Moon" part gave me goosebumps. I'm pretty sure that will be the case with its price tag too.
