As it so happens, I've also got a 176.0012 I picked up several years ago when it was still possible to find watches mislabelled on eBay that no one realized was a Lemania 5100.

Well, when the case, bracelet and dial finishing on an Aqua Terra are obviously inferior to a Seiko Brightz when comparing both up close and personal (as I have), it tends to leave a bit of a bad impression on you.

Personally, I loathe all Maxicase Rolexes, but having handled a few up close its certainly obvious that rhe case dial and bracelet finishing are simply on another planet than the Omega's I've handled.

Personally, I care very little for movement decoration and much more for its engineering prowess, and for me modern Omega will never reach the heights that were attained with the 56x/75x movement and the Lemania 5100 Speedmasters.

Incidentally, as you are wealthy enough, you should get a holy grail speedy (Lemania 5100 in a moonwatch case, for those who don't know).

How about a 1974 Omega Speedmaster 176.0012 with the Lemania 5100 movement?

Because much heritage.

Actual vintage tonneau cased Speedmasters all had that brushing pattern.

Did someone say Lemania 5100?

Yeah, and vintage prices have long since gone crazy for them too.

Here's hoping that BW brings some actually interesting watches.

Otherwise I'll just have to stick to vintages.
