First the pop is very subtle and sometimes I think it doesn’t pop at all and second the shape of the crown digs into my fingers and it not only hurts but makes it hard to wind. Have you had any issues like this?

    Yup, my crown is very stiff. It pops okay, no issues with that, but yeah it kind of digs into my fingers when screwing it in. I dont know, I've never had a crown like this, although I think it is loosening up a bit.
    What was your issue? Can you give me some more details? Thanks

    Oh believe me, I agonized over the black, blue, and the silver/white with the ora ge seconds hand. I definitely feel like I made the right choice at least, but I spent a lot of time trying to figure it out to the annoyance of a lot of people probably.

    Re: Just Added an Aqua Terra; Some Thoughts and First Impressions

    Beautiful pictures, and a really thoughtful write up. My AT 8500 would be my "one watch" if I had to have one, and I enjoy it every time I put it on.

    I agree with pretty much all your pros and cons, except the crown issue you are experiencing... That sounds like it may be worth getting looked at.

    I also really appreciate the quick set hour hand of the 8500/8900 movements, and the incredible AR on the domed crystal.

    Sensational watch! Congratulations, and enjoy the heck out of it.

    Re: Just Added an Aqua Terra; Some Thoughts and First Impressions

    Nice write up and great pics. How I felt when I first picked up an AT 8500 back in 2013, grey teak dial, 42mm. Quickly became one of my favorite pieces at the time, and was part of my regular rotation for a couple years. Flash forward to a year ago, I came close to picking up the new AT, but one thing led to another, and ultimately went for an older AT, this time in 38.5mm and in blue, the James Bond reference. It's a classic. I do prefer the vertical teak dial vs. the new AT dial. In any case, the AT is and will always be a great everyday watch that fits all occasions.

    Thanks, appreciate it! Oh, you touched on something I forgot to mention that I love which is the quick set hour hand! I have never owned a watch with this function before. I'm not sure I travel enough for it to make a difference, but either way it is cool!

    I think Omega will be thanking you for this thread. Great write up and the photos capture the dial colours and details beautifully. Enjoy in great health.

    Thanks! I have actually always wanted to see one if those in the metal! I am curious how the dial color compares. I also absolutely agree that it is an underrated piece, but I think the Skyfall brought it a lot of attention. Great looking piece!
