Good point, for you pilots out there.....

having the steel back and saphire back (just purchase if possible only the type of back casing, not the whole watch, you don't have through Omega) allows you to interchange them on times you are in the air or on the ground. I'd have the saphire switched to steel back casing if I went flying. I'd switch it back to saphire when I'm back on the ground doing other functions. This probably makes me appreciate the Speedy more. See yah! Louis

: back with the steel back, whether that wouldn't make the watch, "flight
: certified", assuming that the steel back would fit the this watch. If
: one had the two backs he then has both versions. Regards
