I think the cracking of the code is elsewhere, guys. One of features of bel canto historically is, quote, frequent alteration of tempo through rhythmic rubato and the quickening and slowing of the overall time.

I think they're just announcing a watch with an unregulated Myota 8 series, -20s/+45s a day.

Price will be good, though, let's rejoice on one thing here.

Well it's chronograph... so why not. It's either the chronograph of the stop watch format and quite a few of your nice dollars, thank you very much. I'm glad they did it but let's face it, I'll never be a customer.

There are only two chronographs in the world. The Speedmaster Moonwatch and the Daytona. Isn't it nice that the most innovative and complicated one now costs nearly as much as the Apollo programme.

You pay for it Chris and I’ll wear it. How’s that for a plan.

I was offered the chance by an Omega Boutique to have my name put forward for it back in early September. When they mentioned the price I told them that if I sold my house and various internal body organs I might get close 🤦‍♂️🤣
