    Anyone seen anything on the dimensions of this case? Assuming the standard 42mm?

    It sure is pretty... out of my reach at the minute for the gold one. Looking forward to reading about the SS one though.

    It looks about a hundred times better on your pictures than it does on the renders and scant available (flash) shots from the Baselworld booth.

    The gold one is outside my reach, but my interest in the steel one has been growing. Any chance you guys tool some decent photos of that one, too?

    Thanks for the link and the picture. Man, the steel one looks a helluva lot better, too. The blue looks deliciously dark, and I don't mind a touch of gold on the dial. Combines well with my wedding band ;)

    I'm seriously tempted...

    Oh ! I guess Omega needs to focus on the Trilogy-Set first and the Speedmaster 17 will come later. Still no news on the Omega Webpage about the new Speedmaster 17, so let's see.

    Regards,

    not sure about the Greek side of the moon on the dial but aside from Apollo staring at something it is a good looking watch

    Although 'the Gene Cernan' would be a more obvious choice for a nickname, I gotta say I like your suggestion for the 'the Greek Side of the Moon' a lot :)
