    Mine's #17xx / 1948 and the serial no. is 8506xxxx

    Can anybody else share theirs?

    Still a proud owner of the LM! Decided to keep it!

    Ultraman [he posted it on the sales forum a while back though]

    I think king1412 is worthy of a special mention, as he actually owned two of these beauties at the same time. Here is his thread and one of the photos from it:

    I noticed while I was at a wedding last year that a guest was wearing a PO. It was only afterwards, while zooming onto his wrist in a photo (with much head shaking by my wife) that I realised it was a LM LE. The applied 'Omega', shiny bezel and lesser thickness than the PO 8500 make it quite easy to distinguish.

    So there! We've accounted for the approximate whereabouts of around 21 of the 1948 Limited Edition POs (including the wedding guy)!

    Just acquired my LE with serial number 8xx and will post pictures shortly. But I have a question.... why 1948 in the limited edition? Did they make 2000 and 52 failed quality control? Just seems like an odd number to choose unless I'm missing something.

    It's in honour of the year in which the Seamaster line was launched i.e. 1948.

    Congratulations on acquiring a beautiful timepiece!

    Re: * Official Liquid Metal Thread *

    Ok.. this is what we have so far..

    #61x (SN : 8496xxxx)
    #8xx (SN : 8463xxxx)
    #1015 (SN : 8462xxxx)
    #1634 (SN : 8506xxxx)
    #17xx (SN : 8506xxxx)

    Anyone can draw any conclusions out of this?

    Hmm.. what's rather odd is the SN for chronoscot's (#1015) is earlier than downer's (#61x)
