Omega Speedmaster vs. Omega Seamaster

Hey Everyone!! Here’s a side by side look at my Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch and the Omega Seamaster that I purchased from DavidSW for my dads 60th Birthday. Having both in hand, I have realized that the Seamaster Dial is much more black and glossy than the Speedmaster Dial.

Loving pair!

For this version of the Seamaster, I think black dial is the way to go :)

If you can have only one Omega, the Speedmaster Professional is the one to have.

I would go Speedy here, but if it was vs. the new SMP, I'd go Seamaster.

Yes Seamaster Dial is pretty much more black and glossy than the Speedmaster Dial.

Of those two it would have to be the Seamaster, if for no other reason than I like watches that I don’t have to take off to have a shower!
