    My new saphire sandwich

    Drum roll please.......
    16 months old - barely and I mean barely a mark on it - inner and outer boxes - pictogram and warranty card - manual.
    Here's the kicker. The seller tossed in a new/unused 1171 bracelet with end links, a brown ostrich strap with quick bars, a Hirsch all weather strap, and a Maratac NATO strap.
    Unless I discover something wrong with the movement I couldn't be happier. The chrono seconds hand does have just a wee bit of creep in it, maybe 1/4sec, just maybe. The sellers pictures made it look FAR FAR worse than it actually is. I expected to have to take it in for a complete polish or work on it myself. I don't think I'm going to touch it at all.

    Pbubsy is a super good guy to buy from.

    21 initial pics in the album.

    The price you ask? How does $1825 sound. Unless I discover something wrong with the movement I couldn't be happier.

    Yes, it was advertised here. I don't know if it was also advertised elsewhere.

    Good grief! That is a great deal. Congratulations.

    BTW - I have been thinking about buying a similar ostrich strap for my Speedy. Would you post a pic when you decide to try the ostrich?

    Re: My new saphire sandwich

    Can you tell if the crystal has AR coating on both sides ?
    The pictogram shows AA or just A ?

    I thought it was one side only, but this is what Omega site says :

    CRYSTAL
    Scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment on both sides
