I should say no one out side of the wus family would care! People generally speaking are not very knowledgable about watch movements. They look at the exterior and decide if they like it or not. We here can appreciate the finer components that made a great watch. The 300MM is a great watch but sorry to say will be under appreciated by most of the watch buying public,in their mind it will look too much like a Rolex and thus here we go again. Thats why I perfer something unique, with a style all its own, doesn't have to be a Stowa or a AquaDive, there are many others out there that will do the job quite well! I like the fact that I am able to find great watches that have little exposure,that have good looks and ultimately will leave others wondering where I got it,and at a fraction of the cost of their highend counterparts!
The Omega PO 8500 is one hell of a watch, and you paid one hell of a price, enjoy!
