Why are you making up rumors? You have no idea what will happen or what Omega will do.

New Snoopy.

 By: Miranda : October 5th, 2020-08:15

Interesting animation on the case back - Snoopy on the command capsule and rotation of the earth per minute

 By: Seeks : October 5th, 2020-08:21
Its on youtube too. I like this one. Omega Silver Snoopy 2020

I like it too

 By: PoyFR : October 5th, 2020-08:49

Iโ€™m surprised...

 By: ArmisE : October 5th, 2020-09:24
I was betting that youโ€™d like it at least because of its resemblance to the blue CK 2998, no? Or maybe for that reason youโ€™re not impressed, which I could understand.

Ah! Your love for the blue CK 2998 is deep!

I am guessing your top 5 Speedies list will not be changing today Best regards

Snoopy ๐Ÿš€

Thank you

Pretty cool watch

most welcome my friend

 By: Seeks : October 5th, 2020-09:44
And agreed!

Well done Omega [nt]

 By: Rui : October 5th, 2020-08:31

Not limited edition, but I suspect this will be Omega's Daytona

 By: dte2 : October 5th, 2020-08:32
"Waiting list" will be long and for VIPs. Fan of the watch though!

That is one expensive Speedie

 By: VinnieD : October 5th, 2020-08:40
thanks but no thanks Interesting case back though ...

Agreed. 321 looks to be a much better value imho. [nt]

321 vs Snoopy

 By: Boxcar : October 5th, 2020-11:01
I would tend to agree . If you really want a 321 you likely should not wait to order and be prepared to wait a long time. Not sure what the situation is for the new snoopy. I would like both . I have a fondness for Snoopy growing up reading Peanuts . In s... 

'Both'? I guess you and Nicolas went . . .

It's always the same with you guys! "Which one should I get?" . . .

. . . "Both!" Smiling, Dr Neither is sometimes the right answer

You should try self-denial sometime, Bruce. I do . . .

Studying for the first 25 years of my life and working hard from an early age in sports and business has provided me with an opportunity to indulge at a later stage in life. Nothing to be ashamed of as I busted my ass to get here. So BOTH will always be m...

Really like this watch a lot .

I can see myself adding one if possible

It is a very nice looking watch โ€” reminds me of โ€”

Just another Speedy

 By: openworked : October 5th, 2020-09:53
It's just another Speedy to me. The fact that it's a non-LE means that Omega intends to produce as many as possible but not be held to producing a set amount if for some reason it doesn't sell well.

Agreed on value!

 By: Seeks : October 5th, 2020-23:46
Also perhaps this is a re-emerging trend on animation on case backs

Hi RV ! These watches come to mind..

 By: Seeks : October 6th, 2020-03:01
Pocket watches and some modern ones...

gimmicky case back and stiff price doesn't do it for me

 By: sebks : October 5th, 2020-10:07
The main attraction of a "professional" watch is that it could be used by professionals... While we (at least I) are not astronauts the idea that astronauts could / did use the same "professional" watch is part of the attraction... But no astronaut would ... 

Exactly what I was thinking ,

 By: iulianbutum : October 5th, 2020-13:24
Kind of an Circus watch ,looking nice though but nothing to bare the name Professional on the dial

HUGE FAN here and already signed up to get it since the announcement last year but I am GOBSMACKED at how much I love it !!! โค๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ”ฅ

 By: holdemchamp1225 : October 5th, 2020-10:21
With the animation on the back, the rotating Earth and Snoopy moving across the case back, I think this thing is going to BREAK the internet ๐Ÿ˜ณ Look out as I smell a BOAT load of speculators who will be jumping on this, SADLY ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™‚๏ธ


 By: Jocke - Bad Santa : October 5th, 2020-11:24
Omega has been successful with its Snoopy models. But I think you should stop when you are on top and not milk the cow as long as possible. This is an example of this, I think. Admittedly, they think the opposite of Rolex. Here we charge double list price... 

My feeling, too. [nt]

 By: amanico : October 5th, 2020-11:31

I would agree with you normally Jocke but we cannot deny blindly the ridiculous market price for the Silver Snoopy so regardless of our personal feelings, the market is what it is...

 By: holdemchamp1225 : October 5th, 2020-11:43
Same could be said for the Daytona, Pepsi, Aquanaut, Nautilus, numerous Richard Mille models, same for AP models. Sometimes we let our personal feelings get in the way of what is clearly in front of us. I do this myself often to my detriment. I love this ...

 By: Clueless_Collector : October 5th, 2020-12:35
Now the recent new watches Bond, Ed White and even this Snoopy are not LE and still people complaining. The price to me is reasonable considering the Apollo 11 and in 2015, the Silver Snoopy was in the $7K range, factor in some inflation and movements imp... 

I agree Raymond. It is a bit sad. No matter what Omega seems to do, there will be people who complain or hate ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™‚๏ธ...

People seem to forget that Omega is a BUSINESS to make it's shareholders at the Swatch group money. Yes they make watches for collectors BUT they are a business earning profit. We seem to forget that and get disappointed or angry when they do not cater to...

It was just my personal opinions

 By: Jocke - Bad Santa : October 5th, 2020-12:40
Of course, there are buyers for this watch, I'm completely convinced of that. I mostly reacted to the fact that it feels like Omega makes these models to hype the brand and often sell them before they are released on the market. Admittedly, it looks like ... 

I understood your point Jocke but we can clearly say that about many brands, not just Omega...

Look at the price increases with Rolex, Breitling, even my dear JLC. It is happening everywhere and we need to realize it is part of the business. I know it is frustrating as I feel the same way with price increase after price increase but we must not for... 

Very true my friend. [nt]

In isolation, not considering previous Snoopy editions or Speedmasters, I have to say I like it.

 By: Jay (Eire) : October 5th, 2020-12:29
I stated over the weekend or last week on a thread about what was coming that I hoped Omega would โ€œown itโ€ (I.e. the Snoopy association) a little more. By that I meant have more fun with it, a little louder if you will. I think this watch has done that in... 

I am not a huge fan of Omega BUT...

 By: MiguelFlash : October 5th, 2020-16:24
I will someday own this watch. It is glorious!

I put a deposit in sight unseen a few weeks ago with my OB.

 By: bonovox303 : October 5th, 2020-17:05
Today did not disappoint. Granted, I'm a Speedy fan at heart, but this is one cool watch. I agree that it is a bit spendy, but the market is the market. Looking forward to it.

While I was tickled pink looking at Snoopy fly over the horizon with the moon rotating every 60 now and then, I think Omega celebrates too many things about the whole NASA bit..

 By: Echi : October 5th, 2020-18:37
I think it's a heritage they should be more discerning of so that the magic is further reinforced instead of diluted. I'd probably scale back and distill the NASA story along a few celebratory lines. I'm no expert but here's an example: 1) First Omega in ... 

Saw it in REAL today

 By: patrickh : October 21st, 2020-11:49
Firstly, I found that the blue is darker than reported on photos, and I prefer the real blue color. The case fits nicely on my 165mm wrist even if the new strap is a little stiff. This should change with time and then will become comfy ;-) The 2 animation... 

Hi Patrick, where did you see it, Paris? Did not know it was being delivered it or maybe you saw the prototype?

 By: holdemchamp1225 : October 21st, 2020-12:16
Anyways I think it looks amazing and actually prefer it to the 2nd Snoopy (Silver Snoopy). I am biased as I am a Speedmaster fan and have been for over 20 years. Comparing the chrono pusher feel of the caliber 3861 to a Datograph is night and day as they ... 

In fact, I had the chance to be at the right Boutique at the right time

Very interesting. I know the brand manager of Omega France, Grรฉgoire, as well as the person responsable for all Omega boutiques in France, Estelle. Guess I will need to send them a message..

 By: holdemchamp1225 : October 21st, 2020-12:55
to know when this piece will be available for viewing in either Cannes, Nice, or Monaco ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜ Thanks again for the info and review. Just wished you took some photos ๐Ÿ˜œ

No photos done as I had a great priviledge to play with it ;-)

 By: patrickh : October 21st, 2020-13:03
Hope you could see it, soon, too. I have to see it another time to confirm or not my decision. to get one.

No worries regarding the photos. I have been waiting for this watch for over a year since I knew about the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 13...

I'm a big fan of the original Snoopy and what it represents. So naturally, I am also a big fan of the Silver Snoppy. This 3rd version is the most fun of the 3 and I think it is also the best version IMHO. I say this from a purely emotional aspect. It lite...
