    They are still very much in action.

    Just look at the hi-res images in the link.

    This is interesting. I tried out the test mode on my X-33 and it seems that the modes there do not match the ones in the X-33 manual. Specifically, Test 0 is Test 2 in the manual - display all LCD segments. Then, Test 1 is Test 4 in the manual (buzzer) and each subsequent test matches the next one listed - Test 2 is Test 5 (seconds motor), 3 is 6 (minutes CW) and so on. There's no Test 1 mode as described in the manual and touching the C+ and C- pin to the battery + does nothing that I can see.

    So, I suppose this can be interpreted two different ways: first, that the listing in the technical manual is only for the 1666C (I've heard that rate adjustment doesn't work for the 1666A) or second, that since the manual is from 2009 and only covers variants A-C, the 1666D test procedure and perhaps adjustment procedure is different (perhaps because thermocompensation obviates easy rate adjustment?).

    I really have no idea what it means. Could someone who has an older out-of-warranty X-33 that's not been serviced recently try the CS Test (per http://www.cousinsuk.com/PDF/categor...ega%201666.pdf) and let me know if their tests match the table on page 7?

    Addendum: The cal. 5666 technical guide (http://www.cousinsuk.com/PDF/categor...h%20sheets.pdf) indicates test modes similar to what's listed in the X-33 guide, different from mine.

    More: From this thread (https://forums.watchuseek.com/f9/upda...es-673468.html), I gather that others have noted a dissimilarity between the listed test modes and the actual test procedure. However, I think that what eeeb has interpreted to be a display of the inhibition count (i.e. display of "1") is actually e repetition of the current test mode (which is the same displayed for tests 2,3,4,5, and 6 - i.e. all the non-LCD segment tests). And it's clear that there is a buzzer tone while in test 1, further suggesting that it is actually corresponding to test 4 in the manual.

    Thus, we can be reasonably sure that the older version movements also do not match what's listed in the manual. But of course this does not rule out that the D version does in any way either.
    Just got a hold of a nice GEN2 (not serviced since 2010 and no movement change at the time AFAIK) and can fully concur with what you found and posted. I was somehow hoping it would have the 1666C as it's keeping excellent time and seems very temperature insensitive compared with my TC enabled SMP300, but no go...

    Amazingly enough there seems to be an old manual trimmer though -> https://forums.watchuseek.com/f9/upda...ml#post5509453

    I love this strap but so far I can’t find it anywhere. Any idea where I could get one?

    I still have my version 1 and version 3. Don’t wear them as often as I should but have never thought of selling either.
