    Considering a Plan B should the Apollo 11 50th Speedy not suit me. Which of these is cooler? (Also considered Tin Tin and some others but think I've narrowed it to these.) Any opinions appreciated!

    Ultraman feels a bit too gimmicky to me... this my vote for the Japan-market racing dial version above.

    Japanese racing. For me just the dial and hands are good enough too - I see no real point to making sure it is actually a 3570.40 - but that's just me. Someday...

    Thanks for the responses! I tried on the Speedy Mark II because it has a somewhat similar dial to the Japan Racing but the watch was just too bulky/thick for me. Cool watch though.

    For now I think Japan Racing. But I have a feeling in the future when Ultraman won't be so easily available I might change my mind...

    The Ultraman wasn't initially my favorite, but after seeing some pics with the "Ultra-Snoopy Strap" (black cordura with orange stitching) I have fallen in love. It is a truly great combination.

    I prefer the Ultraman. I find the gray dial of the Japan racing a little dull.

    The one that speaks to you more.

    I’d do a German white or mitsuka dial or an Italian albino first.

    The Japan Racing is one of the nicest modern Speedies, in my opinion.

    The Ultraman is the one of the ugliest watches ever made, in my opinion.
