    Well then I assume you must know. It's revelant in that the original question posted by the OP is no longer revelant to assisting him.

    Continue to fight the fight but for late comers to the thread the question has been resolved and it's neither.

    They are both unique and Great watches in there own categories.

    I own and wear the PO 2500 on a OEM NATO as a daily wear sport watch. It also has its own unique lineage.

    i have a sub and GMT II that I wear as more of a dress type watch. I do use the GMT when traveling to track time zones. Imagine that using as designed!

    here is the rub, lately I have been wearing a Tudor black bay black bezel red triangle that seems to fit all occasions.

    ** Looks at the original post and scratches his head **

    He asked simply whether why anyone preferred a Planet Ocean over a Submariner, which is an interesting question in it's own right. What he ultimately purchased is sort of beside the point, as 17 pages of responses to the original question show.

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

    I wonder how many people would still have gone with the PO, if the Sub was priced the same as the PO?

    I'm a big fan of the 2500 and the Sub (No-Date). I'd take the Sub over the PO but obviously there is a huge price gap. The big issue with the Sub is the attention it attracts. Some people buy it just for that reason but myself and others see that as a negative factor.

    The 8500/8900 are products of its times and I seriously doubt they will be classics or timeless. They are just too polarizing because of the size. I've tried those watches on and can't imagine how anyone with a small wrist (I'm 6.5) could ever think it looks good but I've seen the watch on someone with huge wrists/hands and it felt right at home. The 2500, while still bigger than the Sub and lacking the in-house movement of the new models, could end up a classic. It's a watch I was seriously considering and one I still may pick up in the future.

    I think a good argument would be for the SMP Master Co-Axial. I know a lot of people who love that watch, even Rolex fans. Obviously, even that watch will have its critics because some people can't stand the "fake vintage" look.

    The correct line here would have been I wonder how many people would still have gone with the PO, if James Bond has still worn the Sub?
    To underestimate the pull of that watch because of the Bond connection would be foolish. I think that's more to do with it than the price. Omega owe Bond a hell of a lot. But on a side note, my PO is far more accurate than 3 of my friend's Rolex. Not wildly, but enough for me to think that the Omega movements may edge it on some of the models.
