    What were they thinking? I look forward to the next round with interest. It can only get better right?

    1014 in gold is hardly limited !! Not my taste at all but they have been faithful to the original
    Wonder how many of the originals they sold in the day

    I like it, love the colours and overall look as well.
    Fast is fine, but accuracy is everything.

    Unsure about this one. Nice movement though.

    I like the watch personally!

    But I find the whole Omega/moonwatch/limited edition thing a bit tedious now.

    It looks like quite a faithful homage to the original. Not sure why there is quite a bit of hate for it. The price isnít too crazy for all gold, and looks are for the buyer to decide. I doubt Iíd buy one over other £25k choices but itís not a horrible watch, and nice to see a different shade of gold too.
    It's just a matter of time...

    Would really need to see it in the flesh, not sure, but at that price not going to happen, I have easily 3 maybe 4 other watches. Maybe 5 even.

    Not a fan of that at all, what a shame.

    White gold with a red bezel would have made a much nicer proposition than this. Soon to be seen on the wrist of some plastic gansta somewhere

    Like it or not, is this not the ideal "flip" or "investment" watch...?
    With such limited numbers, and the whole anniversary thingy is it not a sure thing for prices to rise...

    not for me, but if i thought i could make 5K off it (and had 25k lying around)... well.....

    Doubt it. Hell of a sunk cost, limited demand for YG when you can have TT or Rose gold in other brands for less cash. And, the Speedy has been milked to annihilation...

    50th Anniversary Speedmaster launched - 1014 in yellow gold

    Not for me but I spoke to one of the team at one of the London boutiques and he thinks its stunning in real life

    This is one Speedmaster that I feel will definitely go up in value but if I wanted an investment Speedmaster, the Ultraman would be the way Iíd go as itís a nicer, wearable watch as well

    I have the same with moon-2-mars version. The only Speedmaster discounted in AD almost 10 years ago.
    Saw, checked and gave up - mainly because of ugly subdials. It was for less than 1000£, new, boxed...
