This doesn't look like a sports-watch movement to me:

The other configurations include gold bits.....case rested! smile.gif haha. I really want to like this watch.

My favorite watch that Omega released was actually the DeVille. I'm not a huge fan of the day counter, but I really like the watch as a whole; just has a lovely look to it. My other complaint is that it looks like it could be slightly smaller. Either way, I'm a fan of where Omega is going.

There's one on the bay right now.

Odd since it won't be available in stores until October 2014. To clarify, I'm talking about the Tresor which was shown at Baselworld.

My new Daytona that was purchased a few weeks ago from a Rolex AD was running 10 seconds fast per minute. I brought it back to the dealer who said that the watch had been impacted but that they would have it sent back to Rolex and fixed free of charge. I have babied this watch for the short time I have had it and the case is still flawless. I can't imagine any circumstance where this would have been caused by something I did. Should I be concerned at all? Any idea on what the turnaround time will be?

It could have been magnetized.

The only time I have seen a watch run that fast is when magnetized - that;s usually my first diagnostic thought when a watch that had previousy been keeping good time, all of sudden runs way out of whack. Plus, I suspect you would have been aware of any impact hard enough to cause that kind of result - Rolex watches are delicate fickle machines - and a knick hard enough to make it wig out like this would likely leave a mark on the case.

Anyway - whatever the cause, I'm sure they will fix it, and hope for your sake that the wait isn't too long.

I do think however that the new Seamaster may finally be the Sub Killer, however. I won't even mention the Milswatch.

 

 

 

 

Cellinis are really nicely made, but as Academe points out there are watches from AL&, VC, or Piaget that would interest me more in that price range.  When I think Rolex, its generally one of their Oyster cased watches that comes to mind first.  I generally want sports watches from Rolex, not dress watches.

Crap, didn't realize the center links were polished.

The polished links, lugs, and antique lum just don't work for me.  Funny thing is, I would think that just from keeping any eye on competitive brands and forums surrounding them, that Omega would not have followed the Rolex path of polishing the center links or lugs.  It seems that is something many Rolex owners or would be Rolex buyers complain about on the new Rolex models....and yet Omega is doing it too. Oh well.

I agree in that price range the Cellini just wouldn't be on my radar.

As Tifosi and Roger suggested its probably magnetized.  Rolex are very rugged watches.  I beat the hell out of the first Rolex Daytona I had and banged it against plenty of things and it never affected its time keeping.  As for turn around time, it depends on how busy they are this time of year, but on average they will probably have it a few weeks, just because it will take them time to get to your watch in the cue of watches they get everyday.  But overall demagnetizing a watch is a quick fix, if that is all that is wrong.  Wishing you luck with it.
