For some reason, these were always interesting to me...there is one of these for sale at TRF, but I cannot bring myself to buy it.

Hey, this is really something to see Mark. To be honest, I'm embarrassed to admit that I
didn't even know that Omega made this type of digital watch. Embarassed It's definitely VERY cool, and
interesting that is for sure. Just to have one of these vintage digital quartz Omegas would
really be a high point in a collection due to the rarity, and uniqueness imho, and seeing the
name Speedmaster on it would make it extra special also. Smile In addition it seems like the
Omega quality is there as well with excellent accuracy of the quartz movement they made,
as well as an LCD display that was made by the company that became Eta. Wow ! Even
the case looks to be well made. This is, and was neat Mark ! ..Thanks !!! Always learning
something new !

I see similar Omega digitals on the Japan auction but haven't pulled the trigger. There is a round dial version, though, which I would love to find!
