Agree. Copying Rolex is not what they should be doing. I'm totally turned off by Rolex right now. I really wanted a new Daytona but it's downright ridiculous what's going on with that watch and other SS pieces in the Rolex stable. I can't see how limiting supply to the point of customer frustration is a good thing.

You may well be right. Equally, omega could have bitten off more than they can chew in terms of new watches...

With the way Omega is managing its ‘limited editions’ and now these emails we have received over the past weeks, I am loosing the special feeling associated with my Speedy Tuesday ( and let’s be honest 2012 is not that limited...only in Panerai fashion). I am seriously reconsidering an offer to swap my ST for a 14060m ‘2 line’ (this sub still has the sticker on the back), a classic.

Not again.... though you can’t blame them. They wouldn’t make them if people didn’t keep buying them!
