Incoming: Omega Speedmaster Apollo 8

I have been looking at several Speedmasters and reading and watching reviews. The Apollo 8 caught my attention and one of the Trusted Sellers had a nice one at a fair price so I said why not. I like the watch, as I have previously owned several of The Dark Side watches, and the yellow is a nice accent color. I ordered the black and yellow NATO from Omega to offer a slight change up should I want. My pictures are not very good but I will work on that as I go.

Huge congrats. It’s a great watch. I loved mine, but unfortunately I had to chop some to crunch the collection down. It’s a cracking watch and looks terrific on a nato (I have the omega yellow one and also a black one which looked good)

Very cool one, love the ceramic and how the lum glows, even on the crown.
