    When I first saw this thread I didnt even see that Om3ga fan was behind it! I guess it's safe to say we've warmed up a bit to the new PO, no? I think you made a good choice with the blue :)

    Also, I LOVE the case back shape around the edge. Even though it's not as versatile as the 2500 per se, the blue version really embodies the name "planet ocean." Id love to pick one of these up one day.

    The PO435 clasp is en route to me via UPS, and is scheduled for delivery on Wednesday. So ... side-by-side and other photos by this time next week.

    My wife asks me that question frequently.

    But with regards to my watch, the PO395 did not come with a true diving clasp. It is more like a Rolex Easylink, with extensions of 2mm and 4mm for wrist comfort. The PO435 has an updated version of the 1154 clasp (that comes on the 300MC), which reincorporates the foldout divesuit extension, in addition to the 9.6mm ratcheting extension. Since both the PO395 and PO435 have bracelets that taper to 18mm at the clasp (a 1mm taper for the 395 and a 3mm taper for the 435), I plan to replace the 395 clasp with the 435 clasp.

    That said, I like how the 395 clasp works when diving/snorkeling season is over (here that typically is January thru March), so I might keep it on the watch during the winter months. It is shorter (only 35mm) and lighter, so I expect it might wear a bit more comfortably.

    Awesome thanks for that. Sounds like a worthwhile swap. I am interested to see what kind of adjustable bracelet the new Speedmaster moonphase comes with.

    I'm sure that's why Omega developed the 117STZ004666 clasp (the 2mm/4mm adjustable clasp on the PO395). It can be used across their sport watch line. On the Speedies, only a different saddle link is required.

    I've found in daily wear that I rarely go with more than a 2mm increase if I notice the bracelet getting a bit snug. If I let it out 4mm, it feels loose. When I had a Rolex DJII with the Easylink, the 5mm extension took it from tight to floppy. Omega really thought this through.

    First time swapping bracelets over. A steady hand, patience and 30 mins later I'm happy with the results.

    Just a few shots taken with my iPhone
