Congratulations and welcome to Omega. The brand won't disappoint you. They are the toughest watches I have ever owned. Don't forget to post pics when April rolls around.

April? That's crazy, considering the official Omega site says Available Dec 2019

I got to try on the AD's "not for sale" piece. That's what caused me to pull the trigger :p
Seems to me the initial production couldn't keep up with the demand.

Fascinating piece.

I’d be interested in seeing one IRL.

Why badge it as a Seamaster though?

Doesn’t make sense for a World Time complication.

Wear it in good health when you get it and show us some more pictures.

Cool that they even incorporate made up places to fill in the blanks like “auckland” and “noumea”

I also just tried this on at my local dealer and absolutely love the watch. I think the movement is incredible. Really nicely done and the first World Timer I have seen that is not a dress watch but in a sports model. This makes more sense as when travelling you want one watch that can do all. Dip in the hotel pool, or relaxing on the beach then you can wear this piece no problem. It also has a date complication which I think is a must for a World Timer yet quite a few don’t have it. So in short this is pretty much everything I want. But, and this is the big but, I cannot read the time off the World Timer scale with my ageing eyesight. The numerics are just too small and only when in perfect lighting can I read the time from it. In a dark plane, sleep deprived I’m not going to be able to read it. Late at night in a taxi to the hotel after just landing and I’m wanting to work out what the time is in NY or London or Tokyo I cannot read it.

It looks stunning, it’s a beautiful execution of the watch and I love it on my wrist, not as heavy as it looks and lighter than my Planet Ocean 2500 too.

I was so close to putting a deposit down but held back just because I cannot read the dial. I may have to go back and have another look. I’m sold on it and really want it but the legibility I know will frustrate me after a while of owning it.

Oh and my AD said I would probably get it in Feb if I put a deposit down now.

Cheers,
Delirious.

Not to mention Bienne! ;-)

I wondered if half the run will have Biel?

Cheers!

This thread is a perfect example of why I hate WUS. Here I was, contentedly living my life, not even thinking about this watch, and now...I gotta order one! Looks spectacular.

Now the Seamaster branding makes sense!

Thanks for that.

I'm keen to see more of this watch...
