Two other Omega in platinum: Speedmaster Apollo XI 40th Anniversary and Tourbillon Central.
I posted some weeks ago two Seamaster, the 1948 and the 300 in platinum.
It is not a recent phenomenon as Omega released many years ago some other iterations in platinum.
The Speedmaster Apollo XI, issued in 2009,
And the incredible Tourbillon Central, circa 2004, from memory.
Both pictures to be credited to Christies.
Same question than before: Do you think a platinum version was mandatory, given the huge premium asked fo this noble metal?
Here I would make a distinction: I find the platinum version of the Tourbillon Central quite à propos, due to the nature of this watch. And, for the same reason, the Speedmaster not very appropriate in platinum.
