I gotta tell you the amount of interesting watches Omega makes nowadays is amazing. Granted a lot of them are controversial and not for everyone.
And you can go to an actual store and buy them at your leisure!
It's crazy the mass hysteria partially fueled by IG/Social Media surrounding Rolex. I love Rolex and have always had 1 or 2 in the stable at any given time in the past 20 years, but they all look the same, on the same 2 bracelets, made out of the same damn steel (not counting PM models), most of them with the same ugly cyclops. No titanium, no ceramic case, no bold colors, no experimenting with different chrono movements and sizes. Can't figure out how to make Pepsi, roll out meh black and blue and everyone gobbles it up. Slap a jubilee on an old existing model and WOW - REVOLUTIONARY. It's just a phenomenon why they're not sitting in the store shelves unsold. Starting to remind me of Apple and their iSheep

Regarding the orange, I think those are bad pictures (yes, I know they are official ones). There's already a Ploprof with an orange ceramic bezel... my guess is that it is the same hue of orange:

Is that a bad picture too? Because it looks crappy there as well.

I honestly think they're overextending themselves with their designs and their LEs, but they've got enough "standard" models to keep people happy. Plus, as Nick said, you can actually buy them (and for a reasonable price, too).
I've never found an issue with a watch brand having too much models of a watch... better for us customers in my opinion.

I visited the local Omega AD this weekend and saw a lot of cool stuff. Will post pictures later.
I don't mind diversity, but companies that try to be everything to everyone get lost in the weeds sometimes. OTOH, sometimes they become Seiko, so :shrug:

I think the answer is somewhere between the five models Rolex offers and the 500 that Omega offers (a lot of which are just subtle variations of the same watch).

They released an Orange ceramic bezel GMT a few years ago that was an LE.

My problem with omega is that they have 500 models, yet don’t offer a single modestly sized thin diver, and can’t manage to make a new 2254.

The astronaut’s butt LE though, they have that one!

This looks good and I suspect the new orange bezel will also look better that it does in the initial release photos.

Not to sound overly pessimistic but, given Omega's track record, I'm guessing we may all be disappointed when/if they actually do bring out a 2254 replacement. Look at how the PO has evolved since the 2500. Yes, it has a more advanced movement, but it's a lot less wearable than the original.

Yeah the 50th anniversary Speedy had so much potential. There were talks of 321 movement and could have done a tasteful black ceramic bezel with luminova like the white Snoopy and so on. Instead that butt medallion

It's the thickness that kills them for me. I recently picked up a 39mm AT with the 2500 movement (not sure if it's a B or C). It's just an incredibly well designed, comfortable watch. Not too thick and with a case shape that hugs the wrist. The bracelet looks great (even though it comes up short on the lack of micro adjusts). The newer Omegas have just gotten too thick.

I kinda disagree. My 43.5 PO 8900 is more comfortable, more wearable, and better in every respect than my 45.5 PO 2500 -except in the classic look.

The 8900 is a fantastic watch.

Each generation of the PO has its endearing traits.

Interesting, I find my PO2500 extremely comfortable but found the newer models overly thick. That's not to say that I would find the thicker watches uncomfortable, but they just felt a bit awkward on my wrist. But glad to hear the 8900 works well for you.

i mean, there is the whole "it's 2mm smaller diameter" thing to compensate for the thicker case there. if you compared it to the smaller PO it would feel more beastly.

Never as cool as the OG orange PO, but better than the recent photos. That Ti Ploprof is cool as fuck.

Yes, its larger than the regular Seamaster, but so comfortable. The good thing is that is not a thick or heavy watch, that helps a lot even if it is a tad larger than what I usually like.

It looks gigantic on you, but it could be the picture. It’s also thicker than the smaller date version for no reason.

Yes they are thick but one of my favs.

I do like the 39.5mm PO but still thick in my book for its size maybe we shall see some shrinkage soon....

The 39.5mm wears like a big mac on the wrist. The thickness to diameter ratio is totally off. Combine that with a smallish dial and 19mm lugs :doh:

I really wanted to flip my 42mm PO2500d for one, and then I tried it on :puke:

The 19mm lugs are possibly even more of a pain in the ass. If you need a 39.5mm watch, you also need a short strap with high probability.
