    Either way, love the Planet Ocean line. One of the best watchlines to come out of Omega.
    My 2500D is running at +0.5 second per day and has been serviced once in 8 years. So how and why would the 8500/8900 be any better than that?
    Here is My Precious - the new PO Deep Black with 8906 movement. Incredibly durable and insanely accurate. On it's worst day, it gains 0.25 seconds. Some days it has no measurable gain. IMHO, the PO line is the perfect blend of cutting edge watch tech and aesthetics.

    Back on the bracelet (with SM300MC adjustable clasp for the first time):

    In the 8 months I've had this PO, it was only on the bracelet for the first couple of weeks, so this is like that having-a-new-watch-feeling

    I'm keen for the adjustable clasp but I must say It hasn't become uncomfortable on the regular clasp yet. Maybe it's the fact that it's titanium.

    I just went ahead and ordered the clasp as I was getting the rubber strap/deployant combo and thought I'd just get the "full kit" in one go. I wasn't desperate to wear the watch on the bracelet, tbh...

    But generally I think I'm quite lucky with getting good fits with bracelets (some people say they can never get a comfortable sizing for some bracelets). The adjustable thing's nice, but it's not a must-have or deal-breaker for me...

    Agreed. Maybe I'll change my mind come summer. I usually get a good fit with bracelets too. Although I've never been a big fan of watches on bracelet. Like the look but not the feel regardless of fit. The titanium has changed that though. That's one reason I went for it

    I have an 8500 PO with orange numbers. Think I should sell it to get the 8900 with polished ceramic, dial, and orange rubber on the first 15 minutes? I go back and forth between liking the matte ceramic and polished look.
