On my recent visit to an Omega boutique I overheard some stats about watches and the company.
They have only 5 Dark Side of the moon speedmasters in the USA. One man owns 3.
They have sold only 5 of the new Spacemaster models worldwide.
They are going to phase in their new 8508 (anti-magnetic movement) to most of their watches. Hearing this, I asked if this meant they were going to get rid of the 8500 movement. Don't worry, they aren't, but they are going to replace the most magnetizable parts.
