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

    Agree with these last couple of posts and they are the reasons I chose my PO Deep Black over a Sub. Aesthetics, cutting edge tech, power reserve, shock resistance, anti-magnetism were all factors in me choosing an Omega diver over Rolex. As a separate point, I actually use mine diving and would never dive with a metallic watch - too shiny = barracudas.


    Here is my Deep Black -

    No, it might not have the pedigree and classic looks of the Sub, but I don't care. It's a modern beauty.

    And to say it's already a classic..well, that is nonsense. It's only been out for a few years and it's not exactly a wildly popular watch (yet). Does it have a classic look? Of course. It's gorgeous, like I said before. It's one of the most beautiful watches in Omega's lineup and it integrates and extends themes from the line in a wonderfully realized way. But It has quite a long way to go before you can call it A classic.

    I do think it's "homaginess" may get in the way of developing into a classic. The vintage lume is going to haunt it in that respect. I would not be surprised if Omega evolves it away from that, modernizing just enough of the elements to make it...well...fully modern.
    I'm sorry, but, while I agreed with nearly everything you said in your prior post, I would also say it's nonsense to call the Seamaster 300M a dress watch. It isn't even close. I agree about the vintage lume.

    To be honest, I'm not sure I'd call any diver in the Omega catalogue a "classic," but they're very capable and well made. I think the PO 2500 is the best looking Omega diver from the last few decades.

    I really think this can be the best omega collection on WuS
    It would be awesome seeing a picture grouping only the omegas on the 'multi-Omega owners' thread! How many multi-Omega owners do we have?

    Couldn't agree more!!!

    + 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.
