Thanks! I’m really enjoying this piece. Wish it had better water resistance though. Cheers.

Nice watch

That is strange that Omega only gave that watch 50m water resistance. My Moonphase with the same case size is 100m. Is it due to the ceramic case maybe?

Really digging this combination. Sometimes the blue SMP with blue can be, oh I don't know, too much blue I guess. This with the grey dial give it just enough contrast. I looked at the AT with similar colors and loved it.

I agree, the contrast is great!

Wow really cool! The Omega looks great on that strap too. You should put the chameleon next to it and see what happens

Stunner. Look at that night sky! I am having a hell of a time going back and forth about my next Omega, which I think will be a 44.25mm Speedy. I love these Moonphase versions, but also like the white dial Racing as well as some of the ceramic versions. I think the coated fabric nylon strap that comes on the DSOTM would be a great addition to any of these. I know the bracelet is a good one, I just find myself really liking the comfort of rubber and nylon straps.

Anyways, yours looks great (as always)!

Edit to add: I also really like that the Moonphase versions are Master Chronometers and have Omega’s latest tech. I might wait to see what they do with the ceramic Speedy lineup. If they bring out new Master Chronometer versions, that would be really cool!

Thanks for the comments. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions or want my opinion on this or the racing models. They both have their advantages and disadvantages. I love the moonphase at it's my favorite watch that I own.

Thanks buddy

Recently discovered the Google Photos app for the first time ever and messed around with some filters. Pretty slick photo editing app. Not sure why it took me like ten years to use it for the first time

Thank you!

That's exactly what it is. The black codura strap from the DSOTM with deployant clasp. Strap - (ref. #CWZ003216) Buckle - (ref. #94521883)
