    Great photos all! I'm loving the clasp on these. Feels like Omega got that exactly right. And the blue, like other Omega models, is a pleasure to observe across all lighting conditions.

    Interesting news from Al at Archer Watches, regarding the new cal. 8800 (as posted in another thread):

    Quote Originally Posted by Archer View Post

    The 8800 is not related to the 8520 or 8500/8900. Like the 8520 it only has one mainspring barrel, and yes the 8800 uses a ball bearing in the rotor. Since the 8800 is only marginally thicker than the 2500 (2500 is 11.5 linges and 4.10 mm thick), it could very well be the replacement for the 2500 as the cases for the 2500 series watches might work for the 8800.

    Cheers, Al
    So Omega has developed a high-end movement that could be used in the SMPc (and DeVilles, etc). Perhaps a redesigned SMPc at Baselworld 2017 is not so farfetched.

    Has anyone compared the 2nd gen 8500 vs 3rd gen 8900 and could share the differences and impressions, besides the case size (42/45 vs 43.5)

    Man, I honestly really wanted to hate this watch, and I did in the stock photos, but these pictures actually make me like it a bit ... guess I'll have to go see it in person :) how's the thickness feel on the wrist? I have two 2500s and they are really comfortable..

    The PO395 actually is a bit thinner than the PO2500, at 14.17mm. The new alveol caseback diminishes the thickness "penalty" typical for a display back. Moreover, the shape of the case helps it sit lower on the wrist to minimize perceived case height. A further indication of its actual thinness: It doesn't seem to "kiss" doorways and walls the way thicker watches do.
