The enamel 50th has the sexiest dial . . .

. . . of any Speedmaster.  Fifteen years on, it's turning out to be a collectible classic . . . tasteful, and then some.

Admiringly,

Thank you Art! The dial was why I bought it! I remembered that it wasnโ€™t so well received when it was released๐Ÿ˜„

The main reason the enamel 50th anniversary fell flat initially . . .

. . . was on account of it not being, strictly speaking, a Professional, fitted with a cal 1863 movement.  It would've gained more traction had it been, in my humble opinion.

The secondary reason was skepticism over the Piguet-based movement, which garnered attention for mechanical issues. There were several reports of mechanical failures on forums at the time which affected its reputation.  Omega's cal 3201 was fitted to only three models, yours and two Museum references.  My understanding is that Omega resolved the mechanical issue but decided to develop their co-axial escapement within the confines of Swatch Group, so they didn't pursue further cooperation with Piguet.

Thanks Art! I didnโ€™t know about the mechanical issue. Mine has been running perfectly ๐Ÿคž
