Re: Alternatives that are usable...

Thanks for the info, Chuck!

I've purchased the silver faced CS 3110. It looks fantastic!

The link for the Omega FAQ points again to the link for the manual but I've accessed it from a list of your articles in Coming back to the winding issue, if the crown is wound to a point where it's almost "springing" back as you turn, is this the point to stop? Also, can you overwind the mechanism?

I've just noticed after activating the chronograph, the hour hands at the 6 O'clock register has moved to an hour even though only 30mins has elasped. Is this the "Hour register creep"? As I've only purchased this watch, should I return it to have this sorted or should I reset the chronograph before using as suggested in the article?

Oh, one other thing. The reason I questioned whether this was a manual wind watch was that on the TAG-heuer website about the 40th anniversary model, it states that the Re-edition was a "self-winding chronograph". That's incorrect isn't?
