    I am thinking that the Speedmaster Apollo 11, 50th Anniversary might be good for the only one Omega.
    Even though the movement is not the most classical&iconic and even though the design seems to divide people:
    It might be The Speedmaster and very important limited edition there is at the moment.
    Seamaster 300 or Planet Ocean -collection might also be possible for the only one Omega..
    What do you think?

    My choice has been the A11 50th and if the possible A13 50th won't be too my liking it will remain my only speedy.

    If you’re only going to have one, it’s got to be the standard Moonwatch. I think the Apollo XI 50th is an interesting novelty piece, but it won’t as timeless an icon as the no frills Moonwatch.

    Give me this watch, replace it with a DON, and I’ll never ask for anything ever again. I know it’s not modern, but it’d be my choice for my only Omega ever.

    I can hardly imagine the circumstances that would compel me to choose just one as the only one. But this one would come close.

    Classic Moonwatch...
    There might be many excellent LEs but the classic is always the best...

    I think so...yes, if I would have only one Omega watch, it would be my fairly recently acquired [ from @Darlinboy ] 105.003-64.

    It checked quite a few boxes:

    1. Birth year [1964] Speedy for me.
    2. First vintage Speedy for me.
    3. First DON Speedy for me.
    4. First 321 Speedy for me.
    5. First straight lug Speedy for me.
    6. Came with a correct [and possibly original to the watch] Omega 7912 bracelet with correct [and possibly original to the watch] Omega #6 end links.
    7. Came as a partial kit [pictured below] with correct [and possibly original to the watch] Omega inner box/Omega warranty booklet/Omega pad...I really dig that stuff.
    8. Came with an Omega Extract of the Archives.
    9. Known recent service history from a reputable watchmaker.
    10. Came with an additional Thomas Preik display back.

    These last three checked boxes are very important for me:

    11. Condition, condition, condition!
    12. Very historic and very important NASA background...Rest In Peace Lieutenant Colonel Edward H. White II USAF.
    13. Came from a well known and well respected member of the OF community [ @Darlinboy ]...AND we completed the deal at Hooters!
