Uh, we're talking about a classic moonwatch here. If it was anything other than a mechanical (321/861/1861) movement, it just wouldn't be the same. Besides, just about EVERY watchmaker out there can service the extremely-well-known 861 movements, and the overall cost would be DIRT CHEAP compared to a similarly-priced model sporting an automatic. That's actually a major plus when your watch ends up needing service every 3-8 years.

I would much, much, much rather have hesalite (plastic) than sapphire. A few dollars worth of polywatch will eventually take out any scratches, making it good as new. After your first sapphire microscratch (believe me, it happens rather easily), you're looking at $100-$150+ for a replacement. laugh out loud Diamond paste only works to buff out sapphire scratches in very limited situations.

The real downside in my opinion is that it's the standard model and not a limited edition--so don't expect it to increase in value like an LE would (my speedy tintin has nearly doubled in value from what I paid less than 2 years ago). The upside with standard models is they sport that classic look, and there's nothing wrong with that Smilie

A lot of you guys need to do what I did and just give up on these threads.

No amount of explaining will ever get through to the people who realistically will never be able to afford something like this.

The vast majority of them lack the ability to react in a way that doesn't come from a place a jealousy.

That's all it is. Insecurity and jealousy. It's not human nature to want someone to have more than you and the toilet paper crowd is always going to make their way into these deals.

If you have watches like these or more expensive considering this is on the bottom end of the scale, you know that NO ONE ever notices. No one on the street ever comes up and says wow, nice Rolex or omega.

I've been wearing nice watches for a few years now and they've been noticed less than 5 times. It just doesn't happen.

No one cares and no one should. Most people who wear expensive watches wear them for themselves because they love watches.

Yeah, it's absolute nonsense and strapping 10k to your wrist is insanity. Most of us know this. That's not the point though. If you're fortunate enough to afford these watches, you're doing it because you usually care.

Everyone has something they care about. Whether that be a 3k watch, a 3k computer, a 3k camera.

To all the people who come into these threads to make stupid comments, you're not really accomplishing anything other than making yourself look as small as you feel inside. I used to get annoyed, now I just pity them.

Another good deal on a Speedmaster. This is the more desirable model of the two due to its history with NASA.

Downsides? It is hand wound (vs automatic) and has a plastic crystal (vs sapphire).... Not to downplay it at all.

I get what you say... And this is why the Speedy Pro has been one of Omega's best sellers each year since Neil wore it on the moon. For me, I like the auto/sapphire features and I'm willing to pay for them... Which is why I now wear a Broad Aarow.

If I ever decide to buy a Moonwatch, it will probably be a birth year model.

Isn't this price common at this point? Seems like it constantly comes-up at this price. I would love to see the one w/ sapphire/automatic on sale.

Probably because this watch is way easier to move because of its historical significance.

However, I have a problem with buying a "Moonwatch" for history purpose because this caliber (3570.50) is the modern descendant, not an 100% mirror of the originals used on the moon. It's hard to find the true originals in reference 105.012 and 145.012. IMO if I'm not getting the exact historical piece, might as well get the upgraded one with sapphire since I'm not going into space any time soon.

Note that this caliber (3570.50), is out of production so it is already "vintage".

Love this watch, picked it up earlier this year thanks to SD. I was a little worried about the hesalite, but it's been no issue for me and I'm glad I got this model.

if you gonna buy the moon watch, you need to buy hand wind.

if you want automatic movement, go get something else.

The 311.30.42.30.01.004, aka the most recent "racing" model. Another one of those special dials that people hated while in production, then grew to love as soon as it was discontinued.

Sapphire models are noticeably thinner, which is nice. I'm a big fan of broad arrow hands. I'm not a fan of automatics in general due to the service costs, and I don't mind winding. Even with the seamasters, I prefer quartz models laugh out loud

They're way harder to shatter than sapphire crystals, and almost any scratch (as long as it wasn't deep enough to go all the way through) can be easily buffed out. Did I mention I love hesalite? Stick Out Tongue
