BUT, why there are some many complaints about co-axial movement, e.g., 2500, that stops without reason???
I really don't trust co-axial.
My Speedmaster website
How many complaints have you heard my friend?
I have bought an AT three times and a DeVille once. All of them performed to within +1 sec daily. My best experience was with the blue 42mm AT powered by the 2500B which returns +/- 0.10 sec daily. Admittedly this was after a visit to Omega but that was a result of the watch having been manhandled at dealer level. Since the service it has become one of my two most accurate mechanicals.
Have a good weekend
Yea, counting forum posts about an issue isn't a way to gauge the scale of the issue.
A forum post quoting an authorized repair center rep as saying yea there is a significantly higher failure rate with Coax would be of interest. Haven't read this yet and doubt we will (even if its true).

My god that's a beautiful watch.
Nick Hayek, Jr. in an Interview with WatchTime last year stated:
"The new caliber family (based on the 8500 - ETA manufactured under Omega commission) which has 100 percent Omega identity will ultimately animate nearly all of Omega's mechanical watches, except the Moonwatch, which will continue to encase its historical Lemania movement."
Unless they change strategy - the Speedmaster Pro as we know it should be safe.
"Arguably the second best escapement in the world"
I wonder how many people actualy buy the new co-axial chronometer speedys. I'd go an 1861 any day...
