Just some preliminary shots taken of my new EW 321. More photos to follow with better lighting (natural) this weekend but just wanted to share my excitement. It is an exceptional piece 😁

To quote the enigmatic Etta James:

At last

My love has come along

My lonely days are over

And life is like a songβ€¦πŸ˜β€οΈ

These have turned out to be rarer than hens teeth. Wear it in good health

Many thanks. I think the delay has to do with COVID-19 and also the fact that the entire Swatch group went through a cyber attack for the past 2 weeks...

Hopefully they got things sorted out and more pieces become available for those waiting πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ All I can say is that it is an amazing piece and wears like a dream 😁

I hope so too

The last photo makes it look larger than the 42mm brethren. The dial looks smaller, but the entire watch looks bigger. Would you agree?

The strange thing is that even though the case is smaller in diameter I find it wears similar in size to the Moonwatch 42mm size due to the straight lugs...

The dial appears to be similar in size as well but the bezel really POPS due to the enamel numeros against the black ceramic.

I see what you mean about the β€˜Pop’ of the enamel

Very striking and β€œcontrast-y” πŸ‘πŸΏπŸ‘πŸΏ

This is actually the very first live pic i have seen of the 321

Even though the pics are not the best, the watch looks even better in real live. The execution is great. Also the braclet compliments the watch in a very special way. Enjoy it!

Many thanks πŸ˜πŸ‘ [nt]

Big congrats, excellent catch πŸ‘Œ

That is a winner!

I have a regular Speedmaster Moon Watch and and toiling with adding this one. I can access it, just have to decide if it is worth it for me.

Don't want to sway you either way Michael but this Ed White 321 is clearly a winner for me and a watch that was over 50 years in the making. To have a modern iteration of the Ed White and not have to worry about servicing, part replacement, etc...is a dre... 

Interesting you say that...

Because I've procrastinated over 20 years and never got a Speedy Pro despite the fact that I liked to own one. When this model was announced, I had an "aha" moment except I am not sure about the price. Let's see more pictures and some feedback after it's ... 

I understand your point but I would happily debate the price point with anyone as I find it extremely fair for what it offers...

 By: holdemchamp1225 : October 16th, 2020-13:43
I cannot speak for you obviously but coming from a person with around a dozen different Speedmasters I can honestly say that if I were forced to choose ONLY 1 modern Speedmaster for ALL occasions, it would have to be this EW 321. If it were 2, then I woul... 

WOW! That's a great synopsis

Unfortunately for me, I am too old to start building a Speedy collection now, so I would have to be content with one. Thanks again!

Huge huge congratulations!

I also got the call today and mine should also be here next week, along with the Bond 25....finally deliveries are picking up steam. These are really well controlled, that's what I call "limited production"

Big congrats in advance Raymond, you will love it 😜. Seems production is indeed controlled at the moment and Omega is releasing them slowly...

Actually got the call last week of September that it would arrive before my birthday but due to the cyber attack, Omega and many in the Swatch group shut down a few internal departments to try and regulate the problem. Happy they got a handle on it so tha...

Honestly, I think they both wear well and about the same for me although the 321 is a tad lighter in weight, peobably due to the movement and sloghtpy smaller case...

 By: holdemchamp1225 : October 16th, 2020-16:04
From what I can see, it seems to be the same type of bracelet which I find uber comfortable due to the flat links. Also surprising is that they wear similar in size on the wrist even though the case of the 321 is smaller in diameter, most likely due to th... 

Indeed, it I were to nitpick, a micro-adjustable buckle would be the only thing I would change or add to make it perfect. I have seen someone retrofit and modify...

their Apollo 11 50th Anniversary with a micro-adjustable buckle from the 60th Anniversary model I believe. It was not an easy swap so there was a bit of modification to be done. For now, the watch fits great and I don't necessarily need the adjustment but... 

Congratulations on choosing this fabulous Omega ...

. . . Minnesota Fats? Yup, Rudolph Wanderone, aka Minnesota Fats, was tagged by James as her biological father. Now that I think about it, your latest Speedie is kinda like a love child, too, between Omega and the collector community. We expressed our lov...
