for which I have been searching for many moons. This is a TIMEX homage to the Omega Speedmaster (or Moon watch). If you compare, the biggest difference is that TIMEX put the "12" marker numeral whereas the Omega has all stick markers.

This is a great watch....solid stainless steel case and a semi-solid link stainless bracelet. (Semi-solid means that the outer links are solid and the inner links are folded.)

Specs are: 41mm w/o crown; 44 w/crown; 12mm thick; 20mm lug width.

And the price was MUCHO less than a "Speedy." Here are some pix fresh out of the camera:

Ed,

I've never seen that before. Is it recent? I thought it didnt have indigo marking but I see one down at the bottom.

Very nice and a happy new year to you and your family when it comes.

Ian

I believe it to be a new model, but with limited distribution (more)>>>

with the exception of one USA seller, all of the other sellers were in the UK. I think it's a model available only in the UK. If anyone else has any info, please share.

Thanks for looking!

as all of the sellers, with the exception of one USA seller, are all in the UK. From my research, it may be a UK only model. The model number is: T2N563. If you do a search on eBay you will see what I mean. The USA seller, as of yesterday, had one left and he had the lowest price.

Thanks for looking.

As you say US seller was the cheapest but postage was high. I've now got one coming from the UK.
Have a great 2012.
Cheers Richard

Thanks to Ed's model number, I've found a couple of UK sellers

Amazon.co.uk have a couple left and Watches2u as well.

Both offer free UK delivery. If you can't get one down under, I'd be happy to act as intermediary and post one on for you.

I found it on EBay, US seller had the cheapest price, but UK seller had the cheapest post.
One is now on the way down under!
Have a great 2012.
Cheers Richard.

I generally do not like the "distraction" of a chrono's subdials, but Timex (and Omega!) did it "right" with that model and it looks great. The subdials are there if you need them, but otherwise don't distract from the watch's primary function: telling the time of day!

Since it's quartz, I think I'd be interested if it's available in a two tone model.

When someone sees a person wearing a watch like that, he automatically assumes they paid a mint for it!

My that IS a beautiful timepiece and I find it "doing more" for me than that Skagen I was so enamored with awhile ago.

Thanks for the model number. I'll check it out on Amazon when I get a chance.

It is a very handsome piece, albeit very large.
