    The 8500 PO's hands are the best ones I have ever seen on a diver!

    Nice pair. Is the Seamaster a 41mm and the Rolex a 40mm?

    The Rolex Submariner looks smaller to me.

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

    I have and wear a Submariner and a Planet Ocean. Lately I have been wearing the Planet Ocean a lot more than the submariner, because the Planet Ocean is new, (new toy syndrome). I like them both though. I do think the Planet Ocean is more unique. Several of my friends/colleagues wear a submariner or similar Rolex, so wearing the Planet Ocean feels a little unique, at least to me. (I do not think many people actually notice, but I like that the Planet Ocean has a distinctive look).

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

    I was ready to get a Submariner 116610 next year but now, after reading though this thread I am considering another Seamaster.

    I am now lusting after one of the 41mm retro styled 233.30.41.21.01.001 or a 39mm Planet Ocean 600 215.30.40.20.01.001 but I am not into the small amount of orange script but it is still nice.

    I already have 2 Omega Seamasters which is why I wanted a Submariner but the more I look a the 2 Seamasters I am considering, the more I want one of them. Only thing I dislike about the vintage style is the polished centre bands on the bracelet so just one negative for me on each watch.

    Love them both. There should also be one of each in every collection.
