This remains to be seen. So far is pure speculation. The current line might be Omega's highest selling model.

Doubt that would happen. I think they were going to update the movement so I expect the watch to still live on but perhaps at a higher price bracket.

Nice clickbait title! Even if it had a question mark on the end, it would still be detestable.

Don't worry about the price gap, I'm sure they will increase the price when they replace the current model with one using the 3861 movement ...

Nah, this is just the lighthouse model for the people that already own 3 other Speedys and can’t get enough, and has more authentic historical cred to move up in price since not everyone will respond to yet another fill in the blank side of the moon model.

Will never happen. Omega will never discontinue the Moonwatch or do anything to it that would cause it to loose its NASA certification. They are (rightly) extremely proud of the Moonwatch and the fact that it is still flight qualified and used by NASA. They would not do anything to jeopardise that.

Just me two cents here..

Omega will retain the current 1861 movement in the hesalite Speedy while upgrading the movement to the new 3821 for the sapphire crystal Speedy. That way, there is a watch for everyone from entry level to modern to most history accurate and most expensive.

Omega would not discontinue one of their most popular lines. Just as Rolex would not discontinue one of their most iconic, profitable lines. It just does not make good business sense.

Just to be sure... If you are looking to buy the Omega Speedmaster Professional, I think you should do it now!! I think there is a risk of Omega changing the movement in the Speedmasterand and raising the price. There is a good argument in the fact that the price difference between the Omega Speedmaster Professional and THE SPEEDMASTER MOONWATCH 321 STAINLESS STEEL is too high.

I would not be concerned. Anyway, with the millions of Speedmaster Professional models already sold easy to pick an used one if you don’t like the new offerings by Omega !
