I guess -
I am considering getting my first all gold watch and this seemed like a great contender. Awesome history, still quite available at retail, and great color in dark green. Def a lot more than steel counterpart but I guess you always pay more for gold. Otherwise, yes def so much more than steel one..

A very good modern movement!
Some people like me were critical that it was still a Cam driven movement and not a column wheel movement. The pusher feel isn't quite as nice as a column wheel movement. Price is fairly high, there are other beautiful watches to consider at this price. F...
I think it’s beautiful.
But there are other beauties out there at that price point as well. This would certainly not be a bad choice!
What is attracting you to this?
Comparing with the steel, do you like it so much to pay about 6X more for the green dial and gold? Not for me…. Do let us know your thoughts.

I can tell you that it’s absolutely epic on the wrist …
and you can have it on a rubber strap giving it an alternative look. I’m just deciding on this one or the gold panda version. I have the Moonshine and it makes the decision a little more complicated. One thing is for sure, Omega won’t produce lots of them...
Yes - the panda is quite nice.
But I guess I like green and it seems like the fad won’t always last long where green watches won’t always be available. As such, I am inclined to get nice green watches while they available. I feel like panda watches will always be around.
Your green BP is awesome.
As you said, green watches won’t be made by watch co in this variety every year (compared to white/black dial). If green is your colour - feast!
Yes - the amount of money is def a major consideration.
In this market now, I can get a used Master Compressor Geographic - IWC 7 Day Portuguese - and a VC 2nd Gen Overseas Chrono. I guess all that still doesn’t scratch my full gold watch itch, but when you go full gold, you just pay I guess….
Yes - this is how a lot of people feel.
I think I may be in the boat of liking gold and green, but honestly never seen it in person. I am almost feeling like green is more exotic and lower in price that calls me to me more… maybe
It is really a great looking watch.
For me personally I think that Omega stretched the price too far (as they usually do with gold pieces),but that is of course very subjective and does not take anything away from the attractiveness of this Speedie.
Yes,this is the one!
Only three years ago this much more special watch was 30+ % less expensive than the current green dial model ........ ...
I like it based on looks/design only.
Without giving any consideration to movement, price, or other ways to spend your money, I think it looks great. And I say this honestly because I am not a Speedie fan boy. None of the Speedie watches so far have piqued my interest enough to the point wher...
To me an ultimate full gold speedy would be sedna gold with black dial or moonshine gold with red bezel like Apollo 11. Either combination is more everlastingly classy and unique than the one with green dial. It would all come down to what your preference...
Go for something that always sings to you and pleases you every time you look at it. To me the combo of green bezel with the sunray silver dial and a touch of yellow gold has given me a lot of wrist time for the past few years. Enjoy whatever gold version...
UPDATE TO THIS
So I put down a deposit, never seen this in the metal but if I don’t like it maybe one of you can take it off my hands!
