2024 luxury watches have landed, and the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch is leading the way! The new Speemdaster Moonwatch Dark Side of the Moon Apollo 8 picks up where the 2018 original left off. Its 44.25mm black ceramic case is as tough and stark as ever, but the new dial includes a grade 5 titanium "Saturn V" running seconds hand. Out back, the new Omega Speedmaster Apollo 8 includes the updated Master Chronometer caliber 3869.
Omega caliber 3869 includes all of the features from the latest Speedmaster Professional's caliber 3861. With 50 hours of manual wind power reserve, the still Lemania-based mechanical movement remains as faithful as ever. However, a freesprung balance, co-axial escapement, silicon hairspring, METAS chronometer certification, and hacking seconds upgrade the long-running Moonwatch caliber. And because this is the Speedmaster Apollo 8, the movement includes laser-ablated bridges designed to resemble the lunar landscape.
Tim also answers viewer questions this evening. Is a Rolex Submariner better than an Omega Seamaster? Well, yes it is. BUT, if the Rolex Submariner Date costs $10,250 and the Omega Seamaster Diver 300M costs $5,900, which dive watch would Tim buy? Today's Rolex 126610 is a formidable watch, but Tim's longtime love for Omega watches and the Omega Seamaster steer him towards the thriftier Seamaster Professional.
Rolex vs Omega is an emotional debate, but Tim breaks it down into facts, dollars, and sense. Tonight's show is all about 2024 watches, watch collecting, and viewer wrist shots!
