It really gets annoying now..

The first run of the Omega Speedmaster Broad Arrow seem to have ‘some’ troubles with the movement, a Piguet based Omega caliber 33xx movement. Check out this thread to read more about ‘another’ case of this flaw. Problems of this movement are mainly about the chronograph features, it refuses to reset to zero and/or the chronograph function refuses (to start/stop) at all. Here is a nice overview of the problems. Ofcourse, Omega is willing to repair this flaw (warranty), but it is annoying when you buy a new watch and you find out that it doesn’t work properly after a few hours/days…

However, it seems that the most recent models with the movement don’t have these problems anymore. I hope there is a way to find out (at the dealer) if the watch is indeed brand new or on the shelf for about year……
