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

    I have the 2500 PO and I vote for the Sub. They are two very different watches and I can easily see someone owning both without getting any sort of feeling of repetition. I'm saving up for the No-Date Ceramic Sub which is my ultimate grail.

    The Sub is the quintessential divers watch and any sort of boringness about it is the fact that it has been copied endlessly by others. As someone else pointed out, the Seamaster Professional vs. The Sub is a better comparison. Those two watches are clearly in the same category and the Sub wins without a doubt.

    That being said, I'd rather have my PO for casual wear and the Sub for more formal occasions. The PO definitely gives off more of a tool watch vibe.

    Have you received your PO 2500 now, I know a week ago you said you were waiting on one?

    I actually think the complete opposite. The Sub looks more like a tool watch. The PO is aesthetically more beautiful and less tooly.

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

    I've owned and currently own a few rolexes. In the past I've owned the 2531 and the 2254 sea masters. I thought they were really really beautiful watches. I wish omega never did away with the wave dial.

    After reading through this thread and seeing some pictures I really need to get my hands on a titanium PO.

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

    I have both the ceramic sub date and 8800 (39.5mm) PO. Just got the PO not too long ago after not having owned one since the days of the first gen 2500 cal. PO. Both great watches and have their own unique merits. Not sure I prefer the PO over the Sub per se. I can definitely tell you the comfort of the Sub on bracelet vs. the PO on bracelet is absolutely no contest. The Sub's bracelet wins every day of the week and twice on Sunday by a large margin... and Omega takes the cake all day long for innovation and technology. I'm not sure if I'd really say one is better or preferred over the other as they're definitely both great watches and both bring me a lot of joy to wear. If I had to choose one, I'd almost have to go with the sub but not by much. Gratuitous photos...

    I started purchasing based on impulse. The planet ocean piqued my interest and the Rolex did nothing for me. Also a lot of co workers and some of my bosses have Rolex's and for them it is sort of a status symbol which makes me lean towards the PO more.

    I don't really check it often but when I wear it I never have to reset it. I've had it on my timegrapher once and If I remember correctly it was maybe 3 to 6 seconds a day.
