    Re: Unofficial PO 8900 Owner's Thread

    Hello everyone, this is my first post and I am excited since I am going to get my PO Orange 8900 maybe sometime next week. I had the uPO Chrono for more than 6 years but had to let it go since was not getting any wrist time lately, felt big and heavy.. I tried the new 8900 and I love it, I am also excited on the new movement and the adjustable claps and of course the looks of it!!! I am going to suck up all info of this thread, thank you all!

    Excellent choice and decision. Best PO Watch IMO.

    Thank you very much! By the way what are the strap options apart the black leather and the black/orange? Anything like black with orange stiches? Is it difficult to exchange?

    Well, as you are aware about this new size ( 43.5 mm ), it will need a strap of size 21 mm to fit in this 43.5 mm case size. You have an option of trying the NATO straps aside from the Leather and rubber but bear in mind the size of the strap must be 21 mm to match the case size of the 43.5 mm.

    I am going to visit the Omega Boutique today to see what varieties they have with regards to NATO straps and hope to find a nice match ;)

    Please be kind enough to take some pics or let us know if there is something aside from the ones we know.. Yes 21mm means the older 8500 straps will not fit

    Re: Unofficial PO 8900 Owner's Thread

    I'm so 'in the market' for a PO, having yearned and lusted one for years, and I soooo wanted to love the 8900 new version, especially the classic Black Face/Bezel on Steel, with its micro-adjust clasp etc.
    So much so, I nearly pulled the trigger on a fab 3mth old private sale, but before I did, popped in to a local AD just an hour ago to just have another look/feel.

    Which is where it all goes south, as altho the watch is undoubtably classy and striking, and I'm sure the 89oo movement will be flawless, it just seemed to wear 'small', and its 43.5mm felt & looked more like the 8500 42mm version. I know we are talking small amounts here,
    but really, even on my 7.5" wrist, it looked a bit well, err...... small.

    So, I think for me, as & when I get my PO, its the 45.5 for me. Perhaps its because I've worn my Breitling B50 (46mm) for the last 2 years, which altho large, being Ti, is easy to adorn.

    Shame, I so wanted to love the 8900's.........

    Sounds like you're the ideal clientele for the PO Chronographs. Did you give the 9900s a go?

    OMEGA Speedmaster '57 (2017) - On Order
    ROLEX DaytonaC White 116500LN - Waitlisted
    ROLEX GMT-Master II 116710 BLNR

    I didn't tbh, altho I have tried on the PO Chrono's before, and they are HUUUGE on the wrist....... in terms of thickness etc. I know they are still 45.5 arent they ?
    So unless they've slimmed down the 9900 Chrono massively, I fear much too heavy........

    Cant win !

    Deep black? It's 45.5mm, has a GMT complication so is reasonably thick but very light as the case is all ceramic. Here's mine:
