    I still think they're cool but unfortunately still VERY expensive... :(

    Not nearly as expensive as the new Z-33!

    Does anyone else's backlight make a high-pitched whining noise? I seem to recall this is normal for EL displays like this but was wondering. Also, is there any way to date production of the watch by serial number?

    Thanks. I figured it was normal. Mine glows blue so it must be an older movement.

    A friend of mine is getting a brand new X-33 assuming they get enough people on the list to place the order. Maybe I'll get on the list too even though I already have one. It would be nice to have one that's brand new and I get the feeling they will not be available much longer with the Z-33 coming to market. A shame as the Z-33 is a much more expensive watch and will only available at Omega boutiques.

    I find I wear my X-33 more than any other watch which is funny as I didn't expect that to be the case when I bought it.

    As you can see, I love the X-33s! Bought both of them used and no regrets at all....Here in Japan some pop up NOS at Tokyo watch stores asking full retail!!

    Here is a shot of the Cal. 1666 in my June 2011 serviced green-light X-33. No indication of version.

    Currently teetering on getting a Gen1 thats just been serviced in the UK but Swatch UK swear blind there is no upgraded movement...maybe because there are no new visible features, like say with the 1665B vs the 1665A. I'll ask about that green BL color.

    @ASRSPR - you could try the calibration procesure (TEST Mode 1) explained in the CousinsUK document posted on the previous page, if it works you have the 1666D (or 1666C)!

    Does anyone have access to a newer version of the tech guide pdf including the D movement?
