I am so glad I didn’t buy a Speedmaster

Just before lockdown I was incredibly close to buying an Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch at retail. It grabbed me for a moment, but I walked out of the store and 3 months later I am ‘so’ glad I avoided temptation. Here are the reasons why-

It is not water resistant to a decent level (and how important is proper hand washing at the moment?!?)

The crystal is open to damage

It had virtually no presence on the wrist

No date window

It’s kind of boring

All it seems to have going for it is that fact that a few of them have gone to space. Woop! What difference would that make in my daily life? So glad…
