Up-date with a re-cap of facts and details: Omega to relaunch Cal 321.

 
 By: HSTE : January 8th, 2019-08:22
Here briefly some of the facts: - the new cal 321 has been reverse engineered by having put the watch of Gene Cernan into a CT scanner - the watch that Gene Cernan wore during the Apollo 17 Mission was a ref. 105.003 with the second generation cal. 321 - ...  

Awesome news

Expected in 2019 for some time but didnt think it would actually happen!

Interesting news!

 
 By: blomman Mr Blue : January 8th, 2019-08:27
Looking forward to more information! Can it be connected to the 50 th Anniversary of the Moon landing...?! Best Blomman

Nooooooo!!! Please say it isn't so!

How could they not put in the 50th anniversary?! If you're correct then my all time horological high lasted all of 35 seconds! Kamy

Perhaps, but not to this collector!

 
 By: Peripeteia : January 9th, 2019-04:45
I'm also curious as what impact the re-introduction of the 321 caliber will have on the "regular" Speedmasters... I guess we'll find out. Cheers, Kamy

Ditto! [nt]

This is a welcome bit of news

 
 By: ctzn : January 8th, 2019-08:36
Surprised, but not that much. I guess they didn't have many other options if they really wanted to nail the 50th anniversary.

I'm over the moon, guys. [nt]

That’s a GREAT announcement!! I have just viewed Omega Instagram account...

 
 By: Subexplorer : January 8th, 2019-09:53
... and they are making the announcement there! An exiting launch I feel ! Can’t wsit to know ehich ate the new models which will be employing this new 321 caliber. Most probably a Conmemorative of the 50th year of Moon Landing! Look forward to more news!... 

Well...

 
 By: Nono01 : January 8th, 2019-09:57
...this would be cool. I wonder how this would affect vintage Speedy's. In any case, If they would drop something witch is very very similar to 'Cernan', my wallet would be very unhappy

Good move [nt]

That is a great start & good news....

 
 By: maverickmahesh : January 8th, 2019-10:45
Thanks for sharing. Best, Mahesh.,

Really good idea. [nt]

 
 By: Spangles - Mr. Tabby : January 8th, 2019-10:46

Very exciting. Some thoughts:

 
 By: brandon1 : January 8th, 2019-11:01
This is very welcome news from Omega. I've always hoped that this would happen but to be honest I didn't believe it actually would. I read Omega's release a couple times and I appreciate that they seem to be taking care to do justice to this movement with... 

It is not going to be a LE. The launch will be in a LE type watch (details not disclosed yet) but the ....

 
 By: HSTE : January 8th, 2019-14:55
... movement will not be LE albeit being an „artisan“ production i.e. fairly low numbers per year. Cheers, HSTE

which LE?

 
 By: aston.db4 : January 8th, 2019-11:35
It's great that Omega is bringing back this movement, hopefully it will be sold at brick mortar shops rather than as an "online LE". I just hope it's not another one of those "blogger LE"....

According to Fratellowatches

 
 By: reintitan - Mr. Roboto : January 8th, 2019-17:43
The emphasis is mine. "This movement will not be used in a limited edition watch , but there will be a limitation in production for the reasons stated above. Omega reveiled [sic] that there will be something in gold, for sure. Also, this movement will not... 

I'm in. [nt]

 
 By: Dr No : January 8th, 2019-18:01

I suppose selling my speedy last year was good timing..

 
 By: Echi : January 8th, 2019-20:29
This might be an interesting replacement. I say might because I'm sure this will be priced way over the current moonwatch. And hopefully won't go the way of, say, Daytona availability. If they play their cards right, they might have something by way of a ... 

Let’s hope they keep it affordable....

 
 By: Bruno.M1 : January 9th, 2019-00:49
5k for a regular speedmaster and 50% more for a 321 is ok But please don’t screw us like panerai does when they use a Minerva. Don’t ask 15 k or so for this .... cause I would love to own one but I don’t like to feel I’m screwed

Doesn't look like it!

 
 By: eyyeo : January 16th, 2019-02:06
Looks like they are taking a "mass production" movement from the past and making it "exclusive" with their spin to milk it further. I would rather they mass produce it and make it affordable. If the IT industry behaves like the watch industry, we will sti... 

So the see through caseback will be back?

Oh really?

 
 By: Arie - Mr Orange : January 9th, 2019-02:35
If it’s not in the anniversary watch, why buy it (ok unless the price is reasonable) if you can’t see it?

Why buy white gold? Looks like steel.

 
 By: HSTE : January 9th, 2019-14:52
Cheers, HSTE

Fair enough [nt]

 
 By: Arie - Mr Orange : January 9th, 2019-14:54

Probably making a limited edition something or other and selling out before they announce it :S :P been there and done that with Omega, never got any pre-orders so I give it a big sad face

 
 By: Rogi : January 9th, 2019-18:12
they need to start making things people want to buy and in good quantities so those people can spend their money Granted I would have never bought a Rolex had I not been burned by the big O so at least I got to thank them for my pieces in my collection an...
