I am a little late, but I wanted to show my Speedmasters to pay tribute to Neil Armstrong, R.I.P.

So, just a quick shot:

My Omega Speedmaster 105.003-63 with straight lugs and no crown guards

Oh, and an Avo 80th Anniversary cigar to celebrate.

Installed a sapphire caseback on my vintage Speedy.

If you attempt this, remember to get the movement retainer ring for the sapphire back which is taller than the standard movement ring.

You have to remove the movement from the case to install it, but there are instructions online in disassembling a Speedmaster movement:
