    Again, i love Rolex! I'd buy more if I thought they were worth the money. You seem determined to "prove" Omega is decidedly inferior in quality. That is just not true, in my opinion.
    Celebrity watchmakers are in a better pisition to have an opinion on watches than forum members. And the only reason they were brought into the conversation was because my opinion was useless and based on my gut feelings while everyone else's opinion was very valid because they observed how awesome their Omegas were, but my observations on Omega watches having misaligned bezels and jerky movements warranted stats and eye rolling.

    Congrats on your choice of Omega watches hope you never switch to Rolex or call Rolex better than Omega.

    By the way, Rolex 904L steel has no significant advantage - other than marketing chatter - but has more nickel which is very bad for allergy sufferers.

    I find my PO2500 much more stylish overall than the six digits Sub: hands, case, lugs, almost everything looks nicer on the PO, except the HE valve.. A fresher and more modern take on what a diver should look like. Rolex have caught up with the latest Sea Dweller 50 Anniversary IMHO. I much prefer it to the 8900 PO. Let's see what the next Sub will be like, possibly at BW2018.

    I love them both. Haven't taken off the PO all week. It's not as comfortable as the SubC, but it's fun to wear and a bit more showy (which isn't a bad thing). The PO dial is very nice, and I have to admit that the AR is a nice change of pace from the Sub (until I manage to get a smudge). Feels like I can poke the dial with my finger. At half the price of a SubC Date, the PO 8500 seems like a pretty good buy.

    Frankly, I do not. Both are equally great and unique. There's no reason to pit them against each other. I enjoy them both and would have a hard time flipping either.

I also do not see where he deviates from his original question in any way. If you found the language "leaning toword" an open door to change the direction of the post I would says it's a stretch.

    Wow..
    I recognize the two on the left.. but the two on the right seem identical besides the color of the second needle tip and "Seamaster" wording? 2500s too?

    The top right seems to be an 8500 while the bottom right seems to be the new 8900.
