    DON bezel, interesting raised effect on subdial.

    Like the shorter pushers and bracelet. The rest is pretty meh to me. The graphic is pretty nasty. ’The Spaceman’s Arse Edition’ Has a lot of ceramic Apollo 8 cues about it. Don’t think I’ll be partaking.

    I still maintain that 6969 is not that limited. :)

    Both were seen on the Speedy Tuesdays so while welcome, nothing really new (or old)

    Sub dial logo is pretty messy but the case back is beautiful.

    I think it's quite lovely. Was hoping for hesalite but oh well. Cork strap is weird.

    Waiting list on Omega's website. Demand will exceed supply by wide margin.

    That bracelet is a killer. A1 job by Omega.
    Beautiful caseback, NAIAD too.
    Like the grey textured dial plus black.
    Meh on the subdial, but not a deal breaker.
    Nice packaging, not over the top.

    Overall, a handsome rendition. Worthy effort.

    Available in stores from July 2019.
    Initial impression, a bit underwhelming.

    I agree the cork strap looks out of place, wore but it's a very nice watch. The two tone is well done and not over the top. I like the pushers being stainless.

    wait, did Neil Armstrong say "one small step for a man" or "one small step for man" ?

    It is devoid of a strong impact to me.
    I'm not sure if I like it or not yet.
    It would have been better if the footprint was etched on subidial and that astronaut on the back IMO.

    He said "One small step for a man" but the radio crackled when he said "a" so he's been misquoted as saying "small step for man."

    If he truly said "for man" then it's redundant with saying "for mankind" and thus his whole line wouldn't make sense. :)
