    Thanks! Iím actually somewhat surprised the 3861 hasnít made more noise. Adoptionís been slow, but once more word of mouth gets around, Iím sure it will propagate

I researched the few models Iíve been interested in, only one was available to see in person, and while it might seem that would make for an easy decision, we all know finding a true keeper is often no easy task. Well, this choice was easy! The asymmetrical case, short contoured lugs, and thinner profile makes the advertised 42mm wear like a very reasonable 40. The bracelet is absolutely exquisite, rivaling even the X-71 in comfort. The dial, hands, bezel, etc. harken back to arguably the best iterations of this storied piece. And the movement nails the balance, honoring both heritage and innovation. IMO, Omega got all the things right all at once with the 3861!


    Big congrats! I'm a huge fan of the 3861.
