    Off topic now, but for the record I've nothing against Speedmasters. Actually got this one hopefully turning up in the post tomorrow! But yes, I think they released too many also.

    ^nice one

    Please go to amazon and order an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner + Simichrome metal polish.

    This beauty deserves some love and tenderness.

    Thanks. Will investigate ultrasonic cleaners. Didn't realise you could get cheap domestic versions. I may just swap the bracelet out for a leather strap, though initially :)

    I do like that one a lot. I am also on the look out for a lightly used numbered edition FOIS at a reasonable price. I nearly snagged one a week or so ago but it sold to somebody else moments before I could get my offer in.

    That one's somewhat interesting, not for me though. Besides, I just picked up a 2005 Gemini IV limited edition, which is enough of a blue Speedmaster to last me a while. Still, good luck!

    @imagwai go to the Omega Forums (sister site to this one, same login etc) and look for member Kringkily. He can help source you a nice FOIS

    Well it arrived and leather strap is on. Bracelet doesn't look dirty at all in real life but I am probably going to invest in an ultrasonic cleaner once the wallet recovers. :)

    Yeah, I'd just taken a picture in daylight so it was fresh when I took the second in a darker spot.

    That lume would work nicely on your next mission to the Dark Side of the Moon! ;) Granted that you catch a bit of light first!
