Well ... there is that, Kmart.
They still call it a Speedmaster. The Speedy Tuesday portion refers to the name of the website, not the name of the watch. Speedmaster does not get replaced with Moon to Mars, Alaska project, Apollo 11th 40th anniversary etc, nor does Omega replace it with Speedy Tuesday.
Far too much of all this abbreviation and acronym bol#@ks going on chaps! Thousands of years spent developing languages and yet everyone, is either too busy or too tired to say the actual words!
This kind of thing creates misunderstandings and leads to world wars!
It's an Omega Speedmaster 'for fakks sake'!
The answer is 90, of course
There's a big difference between whether something in the vintage collector's market is period correct or not and how to spell the nickname of an object.
One is relevant to furthering collective knowledge on the subject and IMHO the other is just discussion for discussions sake.
Each to their own of course.
No one is debating the relative merits of one type of forum post versus the other. Clearly, a post about nicknames regarding a watch was meant to be lighthearted, and frivolous at best. This should have been obvious to you when you read it.
Frankly, I just don't see the point of posting a "who cares" response to anyone's post. It's discourteous, and the intent escapes me. If you really didn't care, you wouldn't have wasted the time saying so.
What, you mean like bollocks [emoji6]
..realized they only appear at least in couples, so Speedies must be right naming!
No, not really @arcadelt. In the context that I used it, it's neither an acronym or an abbreviation!
I used it as the plural, English, vernacular form of the singular 'bollock', not an abbreviation of Testicles.
"Bollocks" /ˈbɒləks/ is a word of Middle English origin, meaning "testicles". The word is often used figuratively in colloquial British English and Hiberno-English as a noun to mean "nonsense", an expletive following a minor accident or misfortune, or an adjective to mean "poor quality" or "useless".
In recent decades, the colloqial term, 'The bollocks' has gained a positive definition as an abbreviation of the English slang term 'The dog's bollocks': Something of top quality, to be proud of. The idea being that some breeds of dogs tend to display their Testicles with pride. (For those requiring a more polite form of expression 'The 'bee's knees' may be a more acceptable, but less effective, alternative.)
To illustrate this using a horological theme: I often gaze in admiration at my Dad's old 1965, brown dial, Omega Speedmaster Professional and exclaim "Thankyou for this beautiful watch Dad! It really is the 'dogs bollocks'!
Well said my friend!
From back in the day when I was a Cincinnati Police Officer while on a five year Delta pilot furlough...
Coming back to the original question, it is obviously Speedy:
"Miss Ulackfocus" is that a cross between "Miss_Bourginskay" and "Ulackfocus"
Separate names with a comma.
