    Hi guys and gals,

    I was recently fortunate enough to go hands on and spend some time with Omega's latest release, the Omega Speedmaster Platinum.
    This flagship watch is the first in over 50 years to feature the highly anticipated relaunched 321 calibre.



    If you have any questions on this one, be sure to let drop them below.

    Cheers

    Hi and thanks for this helpful link. Have you seen the chronograph minute counter failure at minutes 5:19 of the video? Incredible at least...

    Best S.V

    Still cannot imagine paying what they are asking, and I’m sure Mrs S would agree. :( Kudos on the video however. You did a way better job than their promo materials. I get it. The watch is understated but beautiful.

    UK price is £45k too rich for me by a long way, but it’s a beautiful watch.

    Hi mate,
    Thank you.

    The AUD price I popped up at the end of the video is the price from Omega.
    Just convert that across and you should be pretty close :)

    I have mate, it's a little odd, however I'll wait for Omega to give feedback and let you guys know what's up with it.

    Yea mate, it's pretty high. Very hard to hide from the wife ...
    I think the stainless versions will be quite expensive as well.

    Am I the only one noticing that the chrono minute hands seems to have trouble going from 10 to 11? it pops right back to 10 :thumbsdown:

    Oh!!!!!! Good remark!!!! How is it possible?.... Did Omega really lost the original 321 drawings to rebuild a correct one?....

    Nope, unfortunately i think your one of a few thousand :)

    This particular watch is their early production/ prototype piece used to test and check everything, it has "not for sale" on one of the lugs.
    That being said, I would have thought that this one would have been all smooth, and to be honest I didn't notice when I was filming.

    Great video dude. Appreciate the time you put in. I get my fix of watch porn from only two YouTube channels, and yours is one of them. The close-up photography is a joy. This, the regular Speedy review, and the Tudor Black Bay review video of yours are recent favourites that spring to mind. So thanks again.

    It's truly a beautiful model, unfortunately the price is out of reach for many of us...

    Unbelievable... how could that watch pass the Omega final checks prior delivery? Even if it is a pre-series release for the press?

    03:15 (+ 03:40 + 05:19) - as mentioned above, the chrono hand keeps hanging
    07:15 - regulator is not centred
    07:23 - foreign object/dirt on the gear on the left

    Being honest, that is embarrassing for Omega. I would expect a watch in that price range to be perfect!
    :confused:

    PS: nice video

    09:27 the same mistake with the Chrono minute counter.... ‍::facepalm2::
    But i'm really sure that this watch never sold to an costumer. The Serialnumber is one of the first movements and its a prototype...
