    Let me join the club

    Hi Omega Fans,

    I just registered to the forum after years of reading it. I did it to share my joy over getting a brand new PO LM LE. This watch has been sitting in the shopwindow - well, actually within the store - of an AD in Hungary. I have had several looks at it during the past year, but I was so much focused on the new 8500, that I have not even realized what a treasure I am looking at. In the end, after long struggle and sleepless nights I decided to go for the new SMPC in black, as I mostly wanted a watch on bracelet that I can wear with suit and the new PO just looks ridiculous on my 6.75" wrist. No so much the case size but the height of it. I think you all know this issue, so it does not require further explanation.

    After getting the SMPC a month ago, it took me two weeks to fall in love with it. In the first week I was wondering if I made the right choice. That is when I started thinking of the PO 2500 LM. Funny how it goes, as I have tried on this watch together with the SMPC and the PO 8500 42mm, but at that time it did not capture me. After falling in love with the SMPC already on my wrist for two weeks, I just had to go back to the AD to look at the LM again. That was when I had learnt that there is a 10% off on all watches in September, otherwise no discount on limited editions. After trying on the LM aaaand the new PO aaand my own SMPC for maybe an hour and a half I had left with dozens of pictures on my phone and some thinking to do.

    It was not the question anymore if I liked the PO LM, rather whether to get it just after buying the SMPC. Especially because being a watch enthusiasts I have a fairly long list of watches I would like to own and the SMPC and the PO LM are a tad similar looking watches, with the same movement, so not ideal from the collector perspective, both putting a sizable dent into my watch budget. On the other hand, digging up all the information on the LM and infected by the fans on this forum, I was more and more attracted to the LM. The bezel insert is not perfectly aligned, but the AD will fix it next week. Actually I am not even sure I mind so much, though usually I am ob
    sessed with such faults. On this bezel it is not so obvious somehow. Maybe the colors, I don't know.

    In the end I decided that if I wanted to own a PO - which I definetly did - this was my last chance to get a special one with the case dimensions that still looked good on my wrist. Being satisfied with finally coming up with a good reason to back up the purchase, I went back yesterday and got it.

    As with all new expensive watches, it takes some time for me to get used to / fall in love with the watch, but after wearing it around the house for a few hours this morning I can feel that this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

    Based on the reading I have done, I am still amazed that I could find a new one - for less than USD 4,700 - so long after introduction.

    Man...I'd snag one of these in a heartbeat if I could find one new at an AD.

    Recently got an OEM stitched rubber for mine. Looks rather nice, I think.

    This looks amazing! Is this a genuine Omega strap? I was not aware of this one. I thought only the "rubber-looking" one is available for this PO generation.

    Yes, it is a genuine strap and was made for the 2500 with the white numerals.

    Re: * Official Liquid Metal Thread *

    After two days of ownership and continuous use I am officially in love with the LM. I thought I love the SMPC. Well the LM is just plain gorgeous. I have two questions though. As I mentioned in my initial post, the bezel is not 100% aligned. It does not bother me a lot, but it does a little. My concern is that if anything happens to the LM bezel, it will take a long time to get a new one from Omega. Would you let an authorized workshop take it apart and adjust it? What I read, the correct approach is to install a new click spring rather than to pop out the bezel insert, but how can I be sure that the service will choose this method? So I am hesitating to get it to the workshop for this adjustment.

    Also I noticed at midnight that the hour hand is maybe 3,5 minutes behind the minute hand. In other words the two not overlap perfectly at midnight. The hour hand points in the 12 o'clock direction at 12:03 and some. I also read that this is not a rare issue. Again I am hesitating to have it fixed as it requires obviously the watch to be opened. Have you experienced similar issues with the LM LE? Any suggestion / information is highly appreciated.

    Regarding the bezel, please post a picture of the extent of misalignment. Unless it is terrible, I'd leave it.

    however, if the hands are not in synch, I would indeed have that corrected.

    It is not terribly off. Neither are the hands, it is just strange, never had this before on any of my other watches (Omega, Tag, Longines, Hamilton, etc).
    This is how it looks at 12:

    Notice how the hour hand is slightly to the left of 12?

    Here it is visible, how the hour hand is aligned 4 minutes after 12.

    The bezel alignment is visible on both pics. Sorry for the horizontal layout.

    Does anyone have similar problem?

    Re: * Official Liquid Metal Thread *

    In my opinion, the hour hand issue appears to be minor, having seen it here. But the bezel is quite off.

    I would want it fixed. Whether it can be is another matter.

    My Sub and my SMP are very slightly off..you really have to look at them from 12, 3, 6 and 9 to see it, but my three POs are all pretty much dead on.
