    Re: Unofficial PO 8900 Owner's Thread

    Hi All,

    Received my PO 8900 on Saturday and it has not left my wrist. The timekeeping is superb: after gaining 3 seconds in the first 24 hours it has been spot on since. The new clasp on the bracelet is an amazing improvement. I am anxious to see what strap options there are for. I suppose I should read through this whole thread to learn more about this amazing piece. A quick wrist shot for you all...

    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.........
    Maybe because you had your Breitling on for sometime, I have the same feeling when wearing small watches and going upwards, especially if having my Sub on for weeks.. I have a 7inch wrist and I felt the 8900 felt right at home when tried last week on the AD so I pulled the trigger for the orange 3hand 8900.. I had the older uPO Chronograph for 5 years but let it go eventually since it felt slightly bigger and heavier than what I fancy (it took me 5 years I know, maybe growing older I am becoming old I guess lolol!!!)

    Yeh the Deep Black's are lovely, altho I'm not sure about the 'all black' to my eye, and they're quite a hit on the pocket !!!

    Too heavy (~190g) and too thick (14.4mm) for a daily wearer. Replaced it with a new Explorer, which has more compatible dimensions (136g and 11.25mm).

    I wonder if anyone has tried the 39.5 PO on an appropriate rubber strap and then evaluated the comfort level of the watch given its thickness. I am guessing a substantial portion of the weight is just from the bracelet.

    I was never a big fan of rubber straps until I tried it on my 42mm Ti PO. An already light watch became lighter.
