    Actually, gaijin (or anyone else with a confirmed 1666D) - could you see if the movement is marked as such or just simply as "1666"? I seem to recall that mine was the latter.

    I'm in no hurry to open up my freshly serviced watch ... but will definitely take a picture during the next battery change (or if my patience runs out, when I calibrate the movement ).

    I'll add some close-ups to change it up a bit

    P.S. I did end up with another X-33. This one I found in Bahrain at an AD. It is a Gen 1 that had been in their inventory since 1998. Same strap that you have in your pic, ( I really like that strap) but it was falling apart with age. I picked it up at a VERY good price, AND I have a factory warranty too, since the watch is from an AD and sold as new. :P (But a TC movement now? CRAZY!)

    Pics or it didn't happen right?

    P.P.S. I just noticed that the warranty card has an RFID chip (I assume)... You can see the bubble/bump under the 'do not throw away' symbol. How cool is that? (The AD had to get me a new warranty card from Omega, so I got the card about five or six months after I purchased the watch.)

    X33's are always cool. I'd like to own one someday.

    I checked my movement last night - just marked "cal. 1666"

    From the technical guide on Cousin UKs site they list versions A, B and C for cal. 1666

    When I opened up my X-33 it's a cal. 1666B which is listed as a 'limited edition'. Weird as the B version is the same as the special 'Americas Cup' edition limited to 12.

    Steve - where do you see the letter reference on the movement? Mine is going to need a battery change soon so I'll check it out when I install the new battery.

    James - congrats on the new X-33! That's an awesome find. I bought the same kevlar strap that you have on yours now but it came with black stitching...weird.

    The Cal. 1666D TC movement was obviously released after November, 2009, which is the date of that Technical Guide.
