    I've started shopping for my 2021 watch and I really like this watch. I stopped at my local AD and they do not have it and seemed reluctant to order one unless I committed to the purchase at full MSRP. I checked a few websites and the few I found were selling (asking price) above retail. I'm not opposed to paying full price but if I have to do that I'm inclined to go the the Omega Boutique in Tysons corner.

    Has anyone had a recent purchase experience they can share and/or recommendations for dealers? I've been watching this forum's for sale section but none have come up recently.

    Doesn't sound like you're in the UK? If you were, both AD and OB I recently visited in London had one in stock.

    I saw one at ADs in Tampa and Sarasota in Florida a couple of weeks ago. I doubt this is a big seller, even though it is an attractive watch. I suspect that’s why the AD doesn’t want to order it for you unless you fully commit to buying it — if you don’t want it they know they will have a hard time selling it.

    There one in the window of an AD about 2mins walk from my office, has been there a while.

    I thought I'd like it more in the flesh than I do

    I purchased mine from the Tysons Corner boutique. They are great there...that is also where I picked up my Snoopy and a few other watches. They can find a WorldTimer for you. Obligatory photo!

    I am personally biased towards OBs vs. ADs, but may be not the best location to achieve a discount.
    This watch surprised me by how large it wore on my wrist, so make sure you try one on before you purchase.

    My understanding is that this has been a strong seller, and have been in short supply due to the complexity of the dial manufacture. Omega seems to be getting caught up though, and they are definitely more available now. It's not a small watch by any means, but it's considerably more wearable than its size suggests, thanks to the downturned strap/bracelet design and the shorter L2L.

    The Omega store in Roosevelt Field Mall, in Long Island had one in their display window this past Saturday.

    You should check the Tysons Corner boutique.

    The World Timer on the bracelet is available at OB Fifth Avenue (checked this afternoon).

    I know they were hard to come by previously but seem available now. Not sure where you’re located but have seen a number of these available for sale at OB, AD and eBay in the US.

    Agreed on this watch wearing large. Definitely try one on before purchase.

    My local AD did not have one in stock but ordered two (bracelet and strap) without requiring a deposit or commitment. They called me when the watches were in, I was able to try them on and unfortunately didn't purchase because I was also surprised how large this 43mm wore on my wrist. The dial is superb, though.

    I strongly disagree with the statements that this watch wears large. I own many Omegas, including smaller De Villes and Globemaster, also have the standrd 41mm Aqua Terra. And even though the WT is bigger, no doubt about it, I do not feel difference between wearing the 41 or 43mm one.

    Look here at my amateur comparison video of these two models:



    My wrist is 18cm (~7") and in my humble opinion it does not even look big. People are sometimes too afraid of buying the watch just by looking at the specs. You always have to put them on the wrist.

    Totally agree to always put them on the wrist. For me, the increased bezel width and longer lugs than the standard Aqua Terra made this one too big for my 17cm wrist. Again, just my tastes.

    The picture in your video above shows a good comparison of the size differences between the two. Nice share!
