All the great pictures in this thread made me order one of these earlier! Should be here in a few days, very excited!

FYI- I called Omega to order the rubber strap and clasp as I ordered the watch on a bracelet... Omega said its $250 for the strap and $50 for the clasp, BUT, they were closed until further notice due to COVID and would take the order but could not ship until TBD.

My AD said Omega parts will be opening later than some of the other departments (because of covid). He expects it to be a few months before rubber straps and BUCKLE to be available. I emphasized “buckle” because they have the straps in good quantity but buckles have been on back order for some time.

I was originally thinking of buying mine on bracelet and ordering rubber but when I learned of this I purchased mine on rubber (knowing the strap was the harder to get and I preferred to wear it on rubber). They have bracelet in stock - just have to wait about 1 month for parts to open.

Great video Doug!

We have very similar taste in watches. I got one on the bracelet from my AD back in early January.
