I’d describe it as milky way ring to stick with the space theme. Sure you can clearly see the difference. I couldn’t decide so I was able to source both. I actually wear sapphire more than hesalite. It wears a hair smaller because of the ring. I do enjoy both of them. Definitely my two favorites. Timeless pieces.

Speedmaster Moonphase. Such a great piece.
Glad to be a member of the, "Club"...

A bit bored at work with some free time on my hands, combined with an extreme interest in adding a Speedmaster to my collection caused me to take a hard look at the lineup again. I just went through about 50 or so pages of this thread and, while I saw a few moonphases, I didn't see as many as I had expected. These were not the only ones, and I saw a few of the blue aventurine dial, which is absolutely awesome, but I think if I am really going to go for a Speedmaster, it will be this one with the blue dial. I just find it to be absolutely stunning and I feel like a moonphase should be set against a blue background.

My question is, the blue does not appear to be offered on the metal bracelet on Omega's website, and every one I see for sale comes on the leather strap, but I see this one above on the factory bracelet. Is that an option you can specify with an Omega AD? I do not want to purchase from a boutique as I know I can get a much better price elsewhere. Maybe I buy it on leather then order the bracelet separately?

I find this to be an ideal next watch to my collection as I feel like I "need" a chronograph and something about the moonphase really appeals to me, but I really want it on the factory bracelet that also has the micro adjustment. I know it does not provide as much adjustment as the clasp on my Seamaster, but it looks like enough to get the job done. I really like the size of this watch (42.5mm) and actually found, when I tried it on, that it did not really wear larger than a 42mm Seamaster Diver 300, which I found very interesting and surprising. It is, however, much thicker, but I think I can deal with that as the raised sapphire adds a lot of character to the watch.

Any thoughts and more info is much appreciated.

These moonphases are absolutely beautiful, I really should look away now and quickly. Several nice twists, but the moon phase window alone is something. Blue is a good look but I also like the black a lot.

I think the right AD would be a good place to ask your questions, I can send a contact if you need. I have my own bracelet question about whether a No Time To Die OEM Milanese bracelet or ProPlof can be ordered for a standard SMP (and also what they might set a fellow back). I am imagining a blue SMP300 ordered on rubber with either mentioned OEM bracelet to swap between.

Cheers.

Does anyone happen to know what is the magnetic resistance of hesalite speedy? The one with the anti-magnetic plate.
