43.5 8900 PO, even with that rubber strap. Never saw it in person but in some pics it looks tasty

You are whack. If you throw that strap away and put a all black one on it then it might work.

It’s not the worst version of the new PO’s but I still can’t get over the rubber orange 15 minute scale.

My feelings exactly.

Not sure on the orange, the all black is a little more subtle

Image

The blue is cool

Or full whack, blue case, orange high lights.

I’m a big fan of this one as well. I haven’t seen any for sale yet though.

8500 XL with your wrist?

How about this for a splash of colour, like vomiting after many different margaritas!

Yeah it is kinda crazy, maybe too summer-only I guess.
Speedy Racing is fun, Pat is right none for sale yet and BNIB is too high

I like yours Ed, very much. But I have a couple black dial black bezel divers already. Looking for something different

I don’t mind the orange, but I don’t think it would be versatile enough (for me). For the beach or summertime, sure. Everything else not so much. I’d go blue if I was going to get an 8900.

The blue is lovely. Still a ceramic dial and Liquidmetal bezel, but also a little different (darker) than your BPFF.
