I love wearing it....
I had been considering the Moonwatch for a while but kept finding too the manual wind, the limited 50 m water resistance and the plastic (Hersalite) glass too much of a compromise. Yes, you can have it on a sapphire glass but then is almost $2K more and that does not change the WR. Then I found this one. Almost by accident. Omega doesn't seem to give it much promotion. Even on their website is hidden under other very different looking "38 mm Speedies". I also found the 38 mm size and lower profile (less thick) much more versatile than the original Moonwatch. It fits better in my smaller wrist and the bezel fits well under a long sleeve shirt. In addition, it has a co-axial chronometer certified movement and has a sapphire crystal with a WR of 100 m. This is not a divers watch but gives me a lot more confidence getting it wet in the shower, etc. Have been wearing non-stop (I don't take my watches off even to sleep) and it is comfortable and to me the perfect size. Have run 1 min fast in aprx 5 mo of use. Excellent!
For a long time I was obsessed with the Moonwatch, but found it was just a little too big for my 6.75 inch wrist.But buried within the Speedmaster 38 lineup is the black dial version. Its different enough from the other Speedmaster 38 (which have oval dials, and oval date windows, some have diamonds), almost to be its own line. This black dial version shares much of its design cues from the Moonwatch, but with modern updates.The Speedmaster 38 is a Co-Axial movement, COSC - certified, column wheel chronometer. The Moonwatch is the classic Lemania based CAM movement, and the Reduced was a modular chrono movement stacked on top of a ETA movement. Water resistant is 100m, whereas the Moonwatch is 50m, and the Speedy Reduced is 30m. It has a satin finished dial, versus matte black of its older Speedy brethren. There are rhodium plated applied indices with a lume pips, versus painted indices. Lumed, rhodium plated hands as well. Subdial hands also rhodium plated. Ceramic bezel insert with indentations at the numbers versus a painted bezel that can wear off. The indentations also play off the light in its own unique way. the crystal is sapphire. The bracelet I feel is better designed and the endlinks blend with the lugs better. The endlinks of the Moonwatch really extends beyond the lugs, making it that much harder to wear on bracelet for smaller wrists. The date wheel is very cleverly tucked into the subdial, and makes this more practical day to day. (There is no date for the Moonwatch or the Speedy reduced. ) The profile is also thinner and I can wear this for formal occasions as well. This is such a great watch!
