    I got low no. 49X with Numbered Edition on top caseback from OB in OZ. Love the vintage look and vinatage omega text and logos. It is actually bit weird to wind this movement after 10 rotations. Can someone tells me what are those little pin like poking out? Looks like those little pins are the ones that gives it a tension while winding the movement. Cheers

    Are you saying you can fully wind the movement in 10 rotations? If so that doesn't seem right to me, it takes me ages to fully wind mine from fully unwound. Not sure how many rotations that is as I haven't specifically counted, but it's a lot more than 10!

    Since I only wound it 20 times and it will last about a day and half. I can feel the tension after 10 wounds. Then I saw those little pins as per my photo.

    The tension is weird, I agree. Different from all my other watches.

    My father owns this watch and may sell it b/c the winding feedback and tiny crown are so unsatisfying.

    Agree you can feel tension after a few winds but there's still a lot of winding to do. There's a definite hard stop when fully wound.

    Also agree the crown is harder to wind. I like the look of it though so I'd rather that than a bigger crown which I think would look wrong.
