    I have two modern Omegas with manual winding, the CK859 and a 3861 Speedmaster. The winding feel couldn't be more different between them. When I first handled the CK859, it felt very strange to me, as I was used to the 3861.

    Anyone ever have the logo pop off the buckle?

    Was just purchased from AD and had them ship it to me and it must have come off while it was in the box. I tried it on there before I bought it and had them ship it to me. It was intact when I tried it on. I thought the buckle was machined as one piece. It looks like Omega did some kind of pressure snap deal on it instead.

    What is the response of the AD or the brand? I'm sure they'll be replacing it with a new pin. I'm a careless guy and such a fragile fitting on a beautiful watch is not acceptable. It appears to have come from China supplies.

    No issues with AD. They are replacing it. I was just surprised that the buckle with the logo was not one piece, but two.

    I'm surprised too but its more about the quality control issue. I hope yours is an exception and all others are perfectly fixed.

    Has this watch been discontinued? I noticed it on Fratellos instagram were they reposted someone who said that.

    I’m not sure, but it’s supposedly an Omega boutique only, but somehow my AD got two.

    Looks a bit like a surprised octopus, no?

    It is me, or is the buckle tang designed in such a way that it isn’t that easy to extract it from the strap hole?

    Thanks god, mine didn't have such issue. I was lucky to purchased one with the error print "Limited Edition" xx/2939 numbered edition card.

    New owner checking in, 18XX here. Outstanding watch, glad to have one. I also noticed they are back in stock on the Omega US site this morning. So either the last of the run is trickling out, they found a few more, or it is not discontinued after all...either way, grab one if you're on the fence. It's a beauty!

    I'll also add that I watched a youtube video recently and the watch in the review was #27XX. So if the early limited number misprint is correct, then we are getting close.
