    Or just get his instead and call it a day and save yourself some coin.




    Seriously love my PO but the clasp sucks.
    Never been able to size the darn thing properly so I have a adjustable clasp on order.

The modern Sub is not iconic in my eyes. It's a big mistake.
    Good point that buddy, my mate put it on a NATO and it lasted a week before back on the oyster

    While my PO has stayed on the rubber for 2 years (and counting). Those Omega lugs are designed for anything.

    I am a salesman --selling construction projects and having 5 appointments every day talking with customers face to face. For me PO is the right watch. Definitely less recognizable than Rolex. I do not want that every customer stares at my wrist with Rolex. I can afford Rolex but it is not for me. i do not need a statement watch like Rolex.
    PO is the best.

    Re: Why do YOU prefer a PO over a Rolex Submariner?

    I prefer the PO because (had the 8500 PO 42mm and the Submariner and the Seadweller 4000):

    + Omega:
    - I don't like reflection of the Sub, and I love the anti reflective coating of the PO
    - Don't like the cyclops of the Sub, to much of a distraction and nothing added because I can read dates fine without a cyclops
    - I Like the back of the PO better and the finish of the movement
    - Don't like the 'screamyness' of the brand Rolex, because it's known all over the world and also strange people who don't give a fudge about watches still want to buy a Rolex just because of the name. If someone goes for an Omega it's more likely that person knows more about watches and likes watches overal better (and movements). Not that Rolex itself is any part of this, they can't help it, I Know.
    - I love the fact that Omega cares about the planet and puts resources into this (for example this Omega sponsored docu about the ocean), so you as a buyer of an Omega are actually also helping the world, even if it's a tiny bit.
    - I love the hands on the PO, and I really don't like the mercedes hands on Rolex.

    + Rolex:
    - I like the microadjust on a Sub/Dweller better.
    - Better wearable if you like lightweight watches (and under a suit)
    - Better investment for sure compared to Omega

    So yeah.. overall I like the PO I guess better. But I am also not so much a suit guy. So for me I could wear a PO everyday.

    This doesn't mean I would say to everyone they need to buy a PO instead of a Sub. It depends on the person who is gonna wear it.

    Re: Why do YOU prefer a PO over a Rolex Submariner?

    I highly prefer the brand Omega to the brand Rolex - Rolex is a Rolex which does not conjour positive image in my head. Still i would buy the submariner any day over the PO because i think Omega lacks the technical capabilities to make normal size watches. I still wear a 2500 Aqua Terra because that is the last time Omega managed to make a reasonably wearable diver watch. The previous was the wave dial bond.

    Simply - despite being a huuuugh corporation they have not managed in almost 10 years to make a decent sized watch, i am starting to think that they are too incompetent to make around 9-10mm watches with the 8500 movement, in the either diver/sport/dress combined category.

    And yes, i am angry about it because Omega is my brand, and i want one that fit me properly
