With the bracelet disconnected it was easy to get shots of the display back, so I snapped a few pics. I forgot to clean the crystal for these pics, so the ones of the display back look a bit foggy; part of it was due to the reflection of the white wall next to where I was too… So these pics are kindda mediocre, hehe… In the first one you can see the hairspring, in the second image you can see the column wheel for the chronograph. The last pic is a snap of the entire watch coz I realized I didn’t actually have a shot of the whole thing.

nice pics man. for whatever reason i thought you already had pics of the case display back.
I did, but as you can imagine it was difficult to take pics of the caseback with the bracelet in the way… with it disconnected I could lay it flat and get a good look at it… 🙂
Just a comment on your BA. I am ready to pull the trigger on one and wanted to know if you still love it, and any negatives about the watch. Is the Lume pretty good for telling time at night, and what parts are actually illuminated? Also, do you think the size is too big, and is it actually a bit smaller than the PO? Lastly, did you get it at an AD or grey market like Alan Furman? Thanks in advance for your assistance with my, “most likely” next watch!
Yes I still love it just as much, I wear it more than any of my other watches. The 2 BA hands, the GMT hand, and the tiny little dots on the dial are illuminated, but it really doesn’t last very long, at least when compared to my RXW MM20. I don’t think it is too big, but my last watch is a very large one (at 58mm without the crown guard) so I am used to big watches. It is indeed quite a bit smaller than the PO Chrono. I got it from an AD, it is a pretty new watch so I’m not sure if you can find it at grey market, and if you do your homework you can do better than grey market at an AD. If you need a referral please email me. He is known as “Keith’s AD” on the Omega forums and I would highly recommend him.
Good luck and let me know what you end up getting!
A Big Thanks Andrew! …BTW, cool site!
