Dial Diameter: 40mm
Water Resistance: 500m
My Favorite Functional Watch. Red GMT hands just stands out from the silver dial making it very easy to glance at. Rotating bezel just turns very smoothly... I would say much smoother than the Ball Spacer Master I own. The one pain is that it is my tough warrior watch, so I do wear it frequently but due to the polished nature of the stainless steel, the bracelet scratches very easily.... Maybe they should adopt the Rolex polished bracelet. But this is still my thumbs up GMT watch.

Weight: 235 g
Movement: ETA2836-2 COSC Certified
Bezel: Unilateral directional anti-clockwise movement

Material: Stainless Steel, 32 micro H3 Illumination Gas Tube,
Comes with: Replacement Rubber Strap, COSC Certificate, Limited Edition X/200 Certificate, Extra Buckle & Pin, Screw Driver and Strap Changing Tool.
It certainly is a tough man day to day watch. It is heavy, you can use this as a super weapon to smash someone's face. Or daily weights training on the forearm.
The new metal buckle takes abit of time to get use to. The secondary deployment strap extension works very well and is easy to use.
The movement is no nonsense as its COSC certified movement. Tracks time as well as the train timing in Tokyo!
The best part is the micro-gas illumination. It just lights up by itself, the best in the market, beats Panerai hands down in this department.
This is a special Japan limited Edition of 200 pieces. I would rate the comfort level on the wrist lower than Rolex but the daily ragged tough man day to day is better than my Breitling Colt GMT. Thumbs up for this watch!

In Japan, most (working) ladies owns a piece of LV bag or purse while most salaryman owns a rolex or omega watch.
So presenting the latest Omega watch which was introduce in Japan in 2009:
Omega Speedmaster Caliber 3304 Model number: 318.104.22.168.001.06
This latest speedmaster model was introduced in Japan in 2009 (wondering if it was introduced to the rest of the world?)
Difference between this latest model and the previous model is that the date is situated at between 4-5 hour mark and the wording "Speedmaster" is italic bold in red.
Movement: Self-winding automatic
Power Reserve: 44 hours
Casing: Stainless Steel
Case Size: 40mm
Water Proof: 100m
The Horse... flying horse?
I had actually compared it to the other Omega speedmasters in black dial, the colour scheme of this is slightly more outstanding due to the blackish grey dial and dark black chronograph.
Of course the Lume is not as bright as the seamasters... this is a speedmaster... supposedly to be used on land.
Retail price in Japan from big shopping centers or Omega Boutique in Japan: JPY367,500
