What about this one (CK 2998)?

Saw one at an AD about a month ago and not knowing much about Speedmasters I quite like the look of the reverse panda dial.

I think that my brother (a physician) wants this. It's not a bad one, but I already have a Speedy with a Mitsukoshi dial, so I'm looking for something else. Also, that house project is going to eat up my discretionary income for a few months. Kitchens and bathrooms are such a PITA to remodel.

I have a feeling that Omega comes with yet another (another another) re-issue or some stupid anniversary etc. piece of the Speedmaster or surprise - the seamaster. I love Omega to death, but i am slowly getting less and less interested in the brand with all this recycling.

On the other hand i cannot wait to see what IWC, Jeager and Seiko comes up with.

Seiko can improve their lineup by just making all watches smaller and thinner. I don't get Seiko, they can make perfectly thin AUTO movements and yet they make all these gorgeous monstrosities.


P.S. I have 38mm Presage, white dial that looks too tall and too big on my 17,5 wrist. Unbelievable achievement by Seiko.

Yes then I'd start buying Seikos again instead of kickstarter watches.

Well think of it like the GS store specific 25-35 pieces LE that they release every year. Just different dials but at least very unique (and odd) ones.

While I applaud AP for launching a whole new line with completely new movements, they seemed to have been so overburdened by the legacy of the Royal Oak that they chose the most unremarkable designs for this new line. Nothing at first or second glance that strikes you as a watch befitting one of the holy trinity. The dials are especially shocking with the clashing fonts. Really too bad that they wasted this opportunity.
