I sensed a disturbance in the TWAT force and made my way to this thread (thanks @jbarwick for the mention).     Let me back read...
It's been forever since I checked this thread, and even longer than that since I posted. Just back read through about 300 messages.   @mimo, are you really starting a breakaway thread / FAQ section...? This one on my wrist for the last few days. This is the last Omega I'll be buying from boutiques - decent service from the rep that helped us, but the way they've handled production, distribution, and communication of the 45th anniversary Snoopy Speedmaster has been...
 Wait, so, what's your choice - GO Pano or Lange 1? 
 I have a few other modern Rolex divers, but the ref 114060 occupies a super solid place in the rotation. Love it.
Great, diverse shares over the last few pages!

For me, it definitely justifies its use case and relative premium pricing (relative, of course, since it's several times the cost of a Fuji fixed lens mirrorless system and yet about half the cost of the latest M-P typ 240 body only, no lens).  Its EVF is incredible - truly class leading for the compact mirrorless category - and bested only by the SL that was introduced last October (which is not a compact...
 Thanks! Friends who searched on the eBays of this world mentioned that the asking was USD18K. I think that's way too much, even despite the hype and such.  It's certainly not easy to come by, though the preordered units have been trickling in.  That's exactly why it appealed to me - aside from the Speedy + Snoopy's history together and all.  It's a TON OF FUN watch.
This watch, so cute. #PostingAgainAndAgain #OffendingTWATTrolls #WhereIsThatAssholeAgain #DontCare #LoveSnoopy
