    Do Omega co axial watches need braking-in/auditing time? I'm under the impression they go through a lot of testing before being sent for sale.

    Yep, you can go on the Omega website and register your new watch and then see the results of testing before it was shipped to you.

    2.7s/day is excellent for a mechanical watch and well within the specs that it is rated for.

    That's a reasonable rate and might improve, but I'd guess not much. Keep in mind that it won't run the same in all 6 positions. I have found my AT runs fastest if left dial up and you can experiment to self regulate. Try it in different resting positions when you take it off overnight to "slow it down" and use an app like Watchcheck to check it each day to see how each position affects the rate. When worn and mostly sedentary at my desk or left on a watch pillow dial up my 8900 movement runs about +3spd, but if left crown down overnight it will slow down. After owning it for 3 weeks and the movement running continuously it is averaging +1.8spd doing this.

    And as Dan mentioned, if you sign up for MyOmega you can add your watch to your collection and using your serial number and access code from the chronometer cert/card you can see the testing results. It won't show you rates for all 6 positions, but will show you the deviation between the most extreme.

    Since the movements have been running for at least a week already, don’t expect huge changes. However, when your wearing pattern normalizes - that’s when you might see a little change.
