    I haven't, but they didn't ask for one..

    They've sent me an email for the appointment, which states the £4880 price.

    Hi guys, just last week I received my Small Seconds version. So far I am super happy with it!

    Since this is my first caliber 8804 I wanted to check in with you guys wether you can here a slight noise from the turning rotor as well. (When you hold close to your ear?)

    I am just curious, since the caliber 8400 in my Seamaster 300 Co-Axial does not produce a noise, but this could be because of the thicker case.

    Would really appreciate your feedback on this.

    Thanks
    Alex

    The central seconds was stunning in person. As a dress watch I cannot think of anything better at the price point.

    And another question is: if the watch comes with 2 leather straps e 1 NATO, why there's plenty of pictures of the watch dressed in leather and none with the NATO strap? ::popcorn::

    I think a guy put his centre seconds on a nato a few pages back in this thread.

    I don’t trust myself not to mark the pristine polished rounded case on this beauty. So for now, it shall stay on the brown leather :D

    I switched out my blue band on the center-seconds model to the tan band and (even though I've done this a bunch of times with my other watches) had my heart in my mouth while I did it. Happy I did it, though!

    I know, there’s something about swapping out the first time on a brand new watch, despite precautions and lug tape.

    Post a pic if you get chance; Update... see you already did!

    3 months is merely a second or two on Omega's timeline.

    "Earliest" was what the AD (Dallas) said.

    I figure I'll make it a Christmas gift to myself ... or a New Year gift ....

    Congrats

    I know the feeling of getting the call when being away.

    Bet those days were long and you couldn’t wait to get back.

    So you like it?

    Thanks. Yes I do. Very much!!!

    Only gripe (and very minor and more a case of familiarity, rather than quality or authenticity). I’m so used deployants that I’m struggling with the rather small buckle. I hope I get used to it otherwise I’ll be on the lookout for a new strap.

    The leather strap was extremely stiff for me in the first week. This includes the buckle.

    Sometimes it felt like I needed to use excessive tension to release it.

    I wore the watch a notch tighter for a couple of days to get it to contour. Once it did and I loosened it to a normal sizing it was much easier to put on and off.

    Maybe give that a try. Glad you are liking it.
