Comparing with the steel, do you like it so much to pay about 6X more for the green dial and gold? Not for me….

Gold Speedmaster Green Dial - 310.

Anyone got this one on order? Thoughts otherwise? ...  

Only buy it if you can't live without it!

 By: patrick_y : September 22nd, 2022-22:39
The general rule to all things... Only buy it if it's painful to live without it!

A very good modern movement!

 By: patrick_y : September 22nd, 2022-23:07
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... 

Lange just has a special place in my mind.

But the Omega Speedmaster is definitely a cool watch. I procured the steel version myself.

Well, we all love the Speedmaster, and we know this has been established by other brands as a winning formula…

with gold going particularly well with a green dial. Plus, this choice of green hue is great. That all being said, you’d expect this piece would get a proper dose of frenzied buying. To be seen.

Yeah - I think it’s good looking too.

 By: K-Lo : September 22nd, 2022-23:59
Whether many people will buy? I think? I don’t know….

I think it’s beautiful.

 By: MiguelFlash : September 23rd, 2022-00:48
But there are other beauties out there at that price point as well. This would certainly not be a bad choice!

I guess -

 By: K-Lo : September 23rd, 2022-06:48
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. Other... 

I can tell you that it’s absolutely epic on the wrist …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : September 23rd, 2022-03:59
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... 

I’ve been watching vids on this.. i’d go with the panda! The green dial while nice may underwhelm in certain lighting conditions..

 By: Echi : September 23rd, 2022-04:31
I’d go with a speedy over a dayto anytime esp with the panda which will also look great on a black leather strap. i;m not a fan of the black rubber strap. Hope you get the panda so i can see more pics of it here. I think it’s a sleeper, the panda.

Thank you for your thoughts on this one …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : September 23rd, 2022-11:33
The panda dial catches the light beautifully and the green dial is very subtle, but also very cool.

Yes - the panda is quite nice.

 By: K-Lo : September 23rd, 2022-06:51
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.

 By: Nicetomeetyou : September 23rd, 2022-11:16
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!

I agree ☝️

 By: Cpt Scarlet : September 23rd, 2022-11:34

Yes - the amount of money is def a major consideration.

 By: K-Lo : September 23rd, 2022-06:58
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.

 By: K-Lo : September 23rd, 2022-07:00
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

Thank you - not sure what I’ll do yet, The white gold is nice but just

 By: K-Lo : September 23rd, 2022-07:39
Hard to get away from that the white gold doesn’t look like gold lol

It surely is a great watch and there's nothing wrong with it

 By: andrea~ : September 23rd, 2022-07:25
But if it were me, I'd buy a steel speedmaster and get a great high horology piece too, maybe something like a UN Freak X, a Breguet 7027 or a JLC Amvox 2

Yes - the good ol making you pay too much for gold conundrum.

 By: K-Lo : September 23rd, 2022-07:42
I have got the JLC Extreme Lab 2 and Duometre so even if I let one go I’ll still have a nice high horo piece and still an full gold piece. The full gold itch just may be calling me too much

Oh then I guess that it would be fine to get the gold

 By: andrea~ : September 23rd, 2022-09:40
At the end of the day this hobby isn't about pure logic, if you enjoy it, follow your heart!

It is really a great looking watch.

 By: jlux : September 23rd, 2022-09:44
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 - I do agree they are trying to milk you with this….

 By: K-Lo : September 23rd, 2022-11:12
I think I’ll also monitor the market and maybe see how the secondary market reacts to this piece before biting the bullet.

Buy, keep it and enjoy…

 By: Cpt Scarlet : September 23rd, 2022-11:43
Despite changing trends it will always be a special watch. That’s my philosophy ;-) ...  

Send me that one!!!

 By: K-Lo : September 23rd, 2022-14:11

Yes,this is the one!

 By: jlux : September 23rd, 2022-14:39
Only three years ago this much more special watch was 30+ % less expensive than the current green dial model ........ ...  

Good choice 👍

In this the age of green dial watches...

 By: MichaelC : September 23rd, 2022-12:46
That is not the one I would choose. Nothing wrong with it at all, but I prefer other Speedmasters quite a bit more.

Yeah I am hearing that from other people…

 By: K-Lo : September 23rd, 2022-14:12
You would do the Panda?

I like it based on looks/design only.

 By: Moka-Tiger (Ron) : September 23rd, 2022-13:01
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... 

Yes - thank you, I got some time to mull it over…

 By: K-Lo : September 23rd, 2022-14:19
None of them are readily available yet and I have not seen either in the flesh… so will take my time before making an order…

 By: wychiu : September 23rd, 2022-14:22
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... 

Yes it’s the green gold combo - not sure it will always be around.

 By: K-Lo : September 23rd, 2022-14:59
But the panda one is enticing too.

 By: wychiu : September 23rd, 2022-16:04
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...

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!
