did you research on the cal 321 and Snoopy?

the price difference is very huge

a regular moonwatch is approx 5k odd only for brand new

Wah sure boh, you say yourself until such a loser by holding so many watches from fugged brands. I only hold one fugged up tissot in the past. Spoilt within months. After that i decided to look for better brands for better quality and quite surprisingly i think tudor quality is good enough. Ofcos tudor much more expensive than my spoilt tissot and other brands i have like aries gold, citizen and casio g shock. But i think by paying much more we are also getting better quality stuff. Although admit that price and quality not proportional. Have to pay a lot more to get a decent quality. I mean its like you cant expect to pay a few hundred dollars to expect a good quality great finishing mechanical watch like tudor right?

I have been a loser buying other stuff in life but have learnt my mistakes as well. Now i try to save $ and only buy stuff that i really like.

Speedy snoopy is a collectors item, imho more so than those 35 or 40 anniversary pieces. Quick search snoopy range btw usd$14-25k

Speedy 321 u looking at vintage or new? Omega resume production of 321 maybe the 50th anniversary will have it.

Moon watch also so many variations

Just saw the pricing for Snoopy. Crazy prices for the black or white.

For me, Probably it will be down to the calibre 321 (new) once it's released, or Speedy 38mm

As for Moonwatch... Far too many variations...

Flying out next week, probably will take this chance and check out the Omega store at T2 transit

Also asking my sister in law to help me to check out pre-owned Speedy in Tokyo too.

Moonwatch but really if u look deeper the difference really movement, type of crystal or winding guard present or display back or not.

Current moon watch pro has a different model number from 3573.50 iirc no diff just omega choose to rename it.

If u want to go plexi glass, steel back close to original moon watch your choice narrow down quickly.

Speedy 321 on 50th anniversary will not be 38mm and cost wouldnít be cheap.
Speedy 38mm whatís new is reduced, reduced version command poor resale but u not selling. Speedy vintage on 321 not cheap

Read about 321 vs 861 and the newer 1863

Seiko stop the production of this classic skx007. Cheap decent diver watch with screw in crown.
