Boom! Damn that looks great! One of the few PO’s I haven’t tried.. I had the GMT version and although it was nice, it was both a dive watch and gmt; kind of weird, imo. Size is perfect though.

Edit: damn that’s a great shot

Thanks bud. Same diameter, but I believe this is a good bit thinner.

I tried on the Goodplanet GMT when it was first released and loved it, but I don’t need (or want) the GMT function. This is the answer.

That's really sharp. Congratulations. I love the feel and size of my 2500, but the ceramic moves these PO's to another level. Need to check one out in person... Or buy yours in a couple of weeks

Good news; the new blue is very similar to the blue used in the titanium 8500, but Omega finally uses a color matched date wheel.

The one I tried on had a very cool strap on deployant clasp. It’s a fully waterproof strap, using a rubber strap base and having real alligator on the exterior. The bottom, sides, and pin holes are rubber, which should provide for a long service life. I really liked it. A lot.

Some quick photos.

Nice! Do you know the model number?

Knowing Omega, it’s probably 312.5824.5274.1293.3464.124.
