guys.. my At 8500 is the 41.5 mm version.
When I do have money to get a hirsh strap, what size should I get? 20 mm?
Because i measure the lugs with my ruler it states 20 mm, so should I get the 19mm or 20 mm strap as I am afraid the 20mm will be a tight fit.
Also today, I was so careless in loosing a screw for the bracelet while trying to re-size the bracelet. Its my 1st bracelet watch hehe. Called up Omega boutique in London, they told me to coome in with the watch and they will replace the screw.
Planning to ask for some spring bars as well. hopefully they will give it to me for free. ^__^ not sure as this is my first omega.
Accuracy wise.. hmm complicated. Sometimes when I wind the watch, the watch immediately slows 2 seconds.. then I leave it on my desk for a day it will be 1sec fast after like 24 hours. Then when I wore it on my wrist, withing a few hours it slow down to -2 from my atomic time. Then I leave on my desk, it is goes +/- 0 with my atomic gshock time.
so far after 60 hours of owning it, the watch is at -1 sec from my atomic time. I cant really wear the watch as I dont wanna scratch m bracelet so I cant really tell the exact time it gains or loose it one day. This is my first COSC watch, I dont really know what to expect but I like the accuracy so far.
My fortis flieger is like horrible +4 sec, sometimes +10 sec a day. At least this Omega is still guranteed to be -4 to +6 sec a day which I am pleased .
Lastly, do u guys get a bright lume from the At 8500? My lume is very weak.. dim looking.. is that normal?
