    I wonder if that means any AD can order the movement?

    Not sure how I missed that one. Thanks! I bought mine second-hand and I'm wondering if it had been sent in for service already. It doesn't have a green backlight though. It looks almost new and doesn't seem to have AR on the outside thought I'm not sure how to tell for sure. When light reflects off it (say standing in front of a window) I can see double images of the window, one normal and a smaller one tinted purple.

    The later Gen 2 watches only had AR on the inside of the crystal. Others, like myself, have removed the outer AR.

    Not sure this will help you determine if yours has the outer AR, but here's a pic of mine before removal of the outer AR:



    And then after removal of the outer AR:

    Well I opened up my watch today which had the movement replaced April 2011 and it only says 1666 with no letters beside.
    About the color of the backlight my GenII has always been green.

    All x-33 gen 2 that I've had were of blue light. If you had the movemeng replaced in 2011 i would believe you have the upgraded movement which shows green now. Was it always green before the replacement?

    Yes mine has always had a green backlight. I can't recall if it's greener now than before service though.

    Are you talking about putting together an order for X-33's? I've been trying to get some info about the program from Omega, but haven't heard back yet. My unit is currently deployed and I have several guys interested in getting them if someone has the info.

    If this is the case, please let me know.
