    I'd like to see a non-limited white Speedy based on that design. The Snoopy caseback is awesome though.

    That was my first my thought too. Snoopy is cool, but I'd rather have a plan version with the white dial and without the limited edition premium.

    Those other version look SWEET!

    I really like it... but I don't get the Snoopy thing.

    Agreed. That is the nicest white Speedy design in the line-up now.
    The lumed tach is sweet too.

    If you're familiar with the history of the Snoopy Award and you're just talking about having the ol' beagle on the dial instead of the caseback, I agree. If you're not familiar with the history, it's a NASA award given to Omega for the role of the Speedy in getting Apollo 13 home.

    That makes sense, I was not aware of that

    Snoopy is not for me...

    I was just running a conversation through my head - something like this:

    Hi, yes I know there is a Snoopy on my watch.
    No, I am not a huge Peanuts fan.
    No, its new I wasn't given it as a child.
    Well, there is this thing about NASA they give out awards-----as long an explanation as you can be bothered with----
    No, not sure why Snoopy but it was drawn originally by the Peanuts creator.
    Well. at the time he was a supporter of the space program.
    No, I've never worked for NASA -
    No, I just bought a watch with Snoopy on it.
    No I don't think you can get one with Peppermint Patti
