Dark Side of the Moon Owners!

I would love to hear from owners of the strikingly beautiful Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon.
How do you like your watch? Have you ever gotten bored of it?
Pictures would be an appreciated bonus!

Well, I have a GSOTM. I really like it, and the longer I have it the more I discover things I like about it.

I have the same GSOTM Meteorite as this. It didnít get much love for a while, after adding a DJ41 and GMT-BLNR, but wore it this week again and still a beauty

Iím saving for the GMT-BLNR myself. I guess you like it pretty well? Do you wear it to an office job? Nice eye for the keyboard!

I had a GS for about six months, which was a daily wear.

Nice, accurate timepiece.

Three downsides. Minimal value retention, if that’s a concern. They hit 50% quite quickly, so if you’re considering, best to purchase pre-owned or Heavily discounted.

What began as a special one-off limited item, has yielded a brace of kinsmen.

Very thick, at about 16mm.

Still a nice piece.

I wear it with suits all the time. Iím pretty much a blue and grey suit guy, so it works. Wear a tie with rust or orange, and this watch pops as they bring out the Sedna nicely. Itís not a small watch, so need to either have enough room in French cuff, or have cuffs on the shorter side if you want them tighter in the wrist.

My 2 cents

Another happy GSOTM owner here. My favorite part about the watch is how much lighter/more comfortable the ceramic case is compared with a steel watch with these dimensions. My brother's Panerai feels much heavier and bulkier in comparison.

No complaints, no regrets. I purchased the original DSOTM the year it came out and despite all the iterations since, ĎIí still prefer the original. Cheers!

That meteorite GSOTM is awesome! I have tried it on a few times. I have the DSOTM Pitch Black and the GSOTM. Love them both. If I could do it over Iíd probably go for the regular DSOTM over the PB and just change out the strap. But the Pitch Black is pretty special in its own way. The lume is incredible. Both of these watches look brand new.
