    Good man! I remember reading about your ordeal in finding one (after the first one had a flawed hour marker, if I recall), so I was surprised when I saw it up for sale.

    Oh, and that's a gorgeous photo.

    It's also made from 1948 individual parts apparently

    Yes it does. I believe all of them or at least the most of them (they are not done all at the same time).

    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)
    #302 (SN : 8496xxxx)

    Haha, if we also consider Gippo's LM (#302 (SN : 8496xxxx)), it seems that I have the "oddball" one with the low, movement number.

    Something else that should be considered though is that, as far as I am aware, the serial number applies principally to the movement, not to the watch. The movement already has an assigned number when it is submitted for COSC certification and I believe that the testing is done before it is even fitted into a watch. It may then be that when the watches themselves are assembled, COSC certified movements are fitted at random and the corresponding movement numbers are engraved on the watches.

    What is clear is that the movement numbers of the LM LE watches span a range greater than 1948. This makes me think that they are either made in small batches at spread out time intervals, or that Omega are simply using a random supply of 2500 movements which are supplied to the assembly line, and the watches are engraved with these random movement numbers.

    Obviously the "parts bin" factor applies to the PO LM LE as well.

    Mine was purchased on May 24, 2010 at the NYC Boutique and bears #20* with movement #84629**.
