They don't seem to be limited edition, so expect availability will be ok after an initial mad rush.

*Basing that on bits I've read.

This is what i've gathered too, though no official confirmation yet so who knows.

Swatch do usually churn them out, with the cheap movement and case requiring no manual polishing or finishing I would hope after the initial hype they will be readily available.

Can’t see the appeal myself - bit gimmicky and poor move from Omega.

Is there a better watch out there for 200 quid tho? Respect you opinion but curious

Also hearing there will be a large supply. Maybe that’s why they’re limiting it to two per person instead of one.

Well despite what it says on the dial, it’s just a Swatch. With omega branding on it.

Yes. A hell of a lot with quartz movement. People want to pay for the omega branding and have what looks like a speedy on their wrist and is somewhat exclusive though.


As for decent watches there are loads of micro brands that take you to the £300 to £500 bracket for a decent automatic watch with sapphire glass.

I see the omega swatch watch as a bit of fun and good daily beater IF you can pick one up for retail. I wouldn't be willing to pay too much over retail for it.

I fancy this because it looks very decent for the coin and I'm keen to see if the 42mm speedy could work for me. Suspect it will be too big sadly.

Exactly but this isn't a bad thing imo. It's like h&m X whatever or the like.
I'll still have my Tudor, my Rolex, my speedy and my max bill for different occasions and this moonswatch will fit in for certain things(providing I can get one).

Exactly, I want a nice beater watch for the beach. Uranus is calling me… Oops Laughing out loud

Mercury and Moon are definitely the ones to get though you can't really go wrong.

Surprised theres not much love for saturn or uranus. For what is supposed to be a fun watch imo those colours are great.

I'd take any of them except mars, earth, the sun and venus.
