    Same here!
    For any winding clockwise it rotates back a bit counterclockwise.
    Makes me worried to force it too much.
    I don't have this back-rotation on my Speedmaster.

    Any other feedback guys?

    It’s perfectly normal, no need to worry. I have a modern Tresor with the same movement (more or less) and had the same concerns which I brought to the attention of the boutique manager. He gave me the same advice I’m giving you…..it’s a beauty, go and enjoy it.

    Well, we still haven't passed the mistakenly revealed limited edition of 2939 yet. Highest so far is 25xx. Maybe it will be a small-ish batch?

    What was this mistaken revelation? I think I missed it.

    The 1st batch of cards was issued with a limited edition xx/2939, the subsequent release comes with the correct numbered edition cards.

    We have yet to see a number beyond 2939, the erroneous Limited Edition card figure..

    I see several of you guys with a different strap than the OEM one. I find on mine that the strap in quite tight between the lugs.
    You guys didn't get any issue sliding the spring bar fork? The strap is flexible?

    I changed out my strap and the stock strap does really occupy the full space between the lugs, so you have to squish it a bit (on the underside) to get access to the spring bars. Just have to be careful about it so as not to damage anything. Good luck!

    Hi guys, I just received mine yesterday, as a gift! I am always super careful (and worried) when winding manual watches, and with the CK859 I was surprised about two things:

    - the crown is very smooth but does not make any sound when turned to wind the watch… just tiny clicks when turned anticlockwise (not winding it) - I have never seen that on a watch —> is it the same for you guys?

    - the fact that I did not seem to reach a hard stop when winding it : it gets harder and harder to wind the crown but it does not seem to stop… and I was worried to push it further —> your answers above were somehow reassuring but I will double check if I get 72h of PR at « this level » of winding…

    otherwise thrilled to wear it ! Design is very different from everything seen on people’s wrists these days!

    Any thoughts ?
    Cheers

    My crown works just as you described. I'm able to fully wind it until it stops, but it takes a lot of turns. I tested power reserve until it got to a bit over 72h then I wound it up again because it was morning and I wanted to use it, and didn't want it to stop in the middle of the day, so not sure how longer than 72h it would work, but surely works at least as expected according to specifications.

    By the way, this was about one week ago, I set it according to time.gov and it is now only 0.5 seconds ahead of time.gov. It got to -2s in the end of my 72h test but have since recovered. Very impressed.

    Exactly the same for me!
    Click sound anticlockwise, no sound clockwise and the more i wind the stiffer it gets. I also get a slight "back rotation" everytime i give a winding turn.
    I never felt a stop when winding it, and i made a lot of turns though. A bit afraid of pushing more ^^
    I just started a test to see how long the watch lasts

    Can somebody enlightened me, why you want to track the destination of an re issued omega ? And share experiences about backwind clicks and forward winding resistance? Have you ever owned vintage handwinding Omegas ? Everything seems quite normal to me... What did I miss ? Kind regards. Achim

    This is an enthusiasts site, no surprise people are going to discuss esoteric things like winding feel, clicks, power reserve, etc for a watch that is a little out of the range of a typical modern Omega. The movement is different from most modern Omegas, too. The numbering/destination thing is because this was orginally introduced as a numbered, limited edition with a set edition run, then changed to a more expansive 'numbered edition' release that is current Omega practice. Owners are curious to see the first ones outside of the original range, none seem to have appeared so far so the natural question is, are they making more or is 2,939 pieces going to be the actual edition size? I find it an interesting question given Omega's new strategy of not confining themselves to a firm number of pieces of any particular watch. Many, many people aren't interested and don't collect vintage watches. I think that is what you are missing.

    Thanks, that explains it.
