That's the "MD's" watch - Museum piece limited to 1938...
Enamel dial.
Manual wind.

released in ~ 2010 .

However, for Basel '15 - there are a few that resemble this closely - White, Yellow, and Sedna

Thank you for your kinds words.

At the end of summer last year we found ourselves in Venice for a few hours. I like the convenience of shopping in Venice - the orange leather shop is right next door to Omega!

This variation on the Cosmic was nestled in a display cabinet at the back of the shop amongst their Museum collection and it stood out for being different.

I don't have many details - it is not the Museum Cosmic though and I've not seen it in any cataloque. The paperwork suggests a reference number of 5756.30.01. It came with a black strap that I had changed to the Cosmic blue when I retuned home. I probably have lost something in translation (so a bit weary of sharing) but was given the impression that 'such variations are sometimes made in limited numbers for certain markets - Italy being one of 'those' markets.'

I felt lucky to be in the right place at the right time.

If you've ever seen the head on a pint of Guiness shimmer in bright sunlight as it settles you won't be far off. It really does look 'wet' but my camera phone doesn't do it justice. I like how 'complicated' it is although do find myself misled by the large size of the date hand.

It's a discreet size and very comfortable with a French cuff.

Here's my vintage gold Omega. It's been highly reliable since I inherited it 32 years ago and is now getting getting its first-ever service--from Rik Dietel.

Here is a very clean circa 1951 Automatic caliber 351 bumper housed in a solid 18k case. This watch not only looks good; but the accuracy is really quite astonishing.
