Default Omega's Caliber 321 Returns

Not sure if everyone already heard about this, but thought Omega
fans would really enjoy it.

Seems like Omega will be making the Calibre 321 once again. The
movement that actually went to the moon, and was within the most
legendary Speedmasters of all time is making it's return. With the
iconic chronograph movement actually looking to relaunch 50 years
after the Apollo 11 Mission everybody.

Here is the article guys...

Just a couple pictures also...

It's not traditional but i hope they offer it with an exhibition back, leaving the authentic milled look of the base plate.
Just incase i pick one up.

It'll be cool to see what they come out with.
I'm guessing it'll take a lot of $$$$$'s to get one on the wrist.

Please don't let modern manufacturing methods and bean counting screw it up. Don't put it in some hideously ugly "modern" case design. Thank you the end.

Yup, probably is best not to think about the price guys.

But wow, yeah really is neat news from Omega to start off the
year ! ..Really will be fun seeing how much they
use the movement, and what models they will use it in.


Oh, and can you imagine an exhibition case-back like AW said?!!


Stewie thanks for that link as well !


Thank YOU everyone !!!
