    Black Bay Blue vs. PO 2500 vs. PO 8500

    Which one would you choose from the three? Strictly looks wise, no heritage or history, strictly which looks better and seems more well rounded for different outfits.

    I personally like the 8500 best, but can’t pull off the thickness of it. All three are very versatile in terms of style. I don’t see any of them clashing with anything most people would wear.

    I have had a 2500 for a little over 10 years and I still love the way it looks. For some reason I prefer the slightly flatter dial of the 2500 to the 8500, as well as the bezel. It is also not as thick which is a plus.

    PO vs BB is tough. In my opinion the PO wins because I don't personally like the snowflake hour hand. The hands on the 2500 are A+. A nice bonus is the AR coating on the 2500 makes it appear black in some light and dark blue in other light which is a wonderful effect you grow to love over time.

    Winner: PO 2500

    The 8500 is on my wishlist, but I think the 2500 would be slightly more versatile.

    This is almost the exact dilemma I’m in right now. 8500 is currently in the lead for me.

    Of those three, I’d go with the PO 2500. I own the PO 8500, and it is a very very thick watch. It’s fine in a rotation as a weekend/fun watch, but I wouldn’t want it as a daily wearer.

    Black Bay, because, no date!

    Choose the one on bracelet, though.

    I'm an omega man of sorts, but that Black Bay, man this is impossible to decide. Do you have an easier three-way decision to ask, like who do you love more, your kids, your wife, or your parents? I'm going to ever so slightly lean towards the BB.

    Having seen all of them in the flesh i would go with the 2500 for versatility.

    Judging purely from looks I have to say the Black Bay. Such a simple, pure design
