    Me calling it “silly” was probably a bit harsh. I do appreciate the heritage and connection, but I would’ve been happier with Snoopy just being on the caseback.

    Much like chasing the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, my search for the holy grail never ends.

    Trog it has got to end somewhere. It looks like you are pretty close already :)

    I don't think so, I probably have expressed similar opinions in the past.

    You where right, its silly rocket scientist humour!
    Even as a Peanuts fan I would never have a cartoon character on my dial, and I have a "wart " at 10 on my case.

    Some slightly amusing irony here since the helium Escape valve you have on your case is only there because it was there in earlier iterations and now is totally unnecessary. Not really that different than the Snoopy on the dial, a prior generation for whatever odd reason decided to use Snoopy as a symbol of outstanding achievement. Why did NASA choose such an off the wall cartoon character? I don't have any idea. Why does omega continue to put helium Escape valves on their cases and make them look terrible? I also have no idea... except that it really boils down to "tradition."

    :p

    I have zero gold watches, but something about this reference just calls to me. What a sweet combo that green and gold make, just stunning.

    This Omega Seamaster Paris Edition is definitely my grail piece! I'm in love with the bezel and the dial, such a beauty for me.

    I would love to clear a space in my watch box for a Canopus Gold 321, although at 147k AUD I think I’ll let the Trilogy Speedmaster scratch that itch for the very foreseeable future.

    No "grails" as such, but these two are fairly appealing ;)
