    Planet Earth.

    Omega has stopped making the Mission to Neptune. May be due to color bleed issue.
    Prices on Chrono 24 are 1795 to 1995 USD
    There is one on eBay for £3000:-)

    They have relaunched it with a more colour fast planet image. You'd be bonkers to pay extra overs for one that has the bleed thinking it has been discontinued.

    I handled a Mars at the weekend, it was nice. I was offered it at list, £218 but declined as the red feels very Fisher Price. I do like the look of the Mercury version though and the head build quality seemed pretty high (the strap less so). The seller managed to move it on at £300 so clearly there are still overs on them. They are coming through in dribs and drabs into some of the London stores now so patience will get you one, if you aren't too fussy on colour.

    Very nice! What straps are they? (On Jupiter in particular)

    All straps from Ali Express.

    Bloody hell that’s impressive! Only Neptune left? Just got a Jupiter and I was looking for a new strap :) is it the Brown/White on the Ali express link you posted?

    ^ I've always wondered who the kingpin is for these Swatch queue gangs, I think we now know! Looking great though, and much nicer straps (take note Swatch, AliExpress has put you to shame) - you'll find the surgery much busier I'm sure with these interesting pieces on your wrist.

    Do Swatch award you with a nice Collection box when you get the set? Would seem rather fitting.


    [Will be interesting to get your longer-term feedback on colour bleed and pusher robustness.]

    Omega x Swatch

    Slacking there, Rajen, the black is upside down.

    Looks great with the whole bunch of them together, especially on the straps. I thought you’d splashed out on some RubberB’s and nearly over.

    Saturn is quite cool, quite like the rings around the sub dial.

    How easy is the strap change, the case feels very plasticky

    I’m starting to warm to these - I actually really want a moon one ! Don’t live close enough to a store and I don’t fancy spinning the wheel on eBay or stockx. I guess at some point they’ll be easy enough to get you’d hope ? Fingers crossed for web sales soon :)

    Here's my Jupiter which I picked up on holiday recently in Cape Town. I've fitted an Omega rallye strap with an Omega deployant to it which I think works well. Fitting was straight forward and just took the usual care, though was a little nervous with the case being pretty soft. Like actual speedies, these things suit lots of different straps so you can be quite creative. They're good fun!

    Popped into Edinburgh Swatch shop yesterday and they had 8 or 9 flavours of them in stock. Got a Moon one as an early birthday present to myself.

    I just don't get all the fuss ... and hope I never will.

    Absolute tat for the price of a fine Seiko.

    I sense you're slowly warming to them.

    Well played ! If you are passing and see a moon flavour - I’d be delighted to cover any costs and a good drink if you’d pick one up :)

    Sorry mate, I was just up for the weekend. Hopefully there’s someone who lives up there that might be able to help.

    Have just been to Oxford Street, Covent Garden and Battersea, absolute waste of time unless you want either the pink or Tiffany blue ones.

    Crazy to think that outlay could have bought you a real Speedmaster Pro brand new up until a few years ago.

    These Swatches do nothing for me.

    Can you imagine a world in which Rolex offered this kind of shit?

    I’d queue up overnight and buy all 11 if Rolex did the same. Love ‘em! 😀👍
