    Which Omega PO 8500 dial/numbers combo to get?

    (Posted this in the Omega forum, but feel might get more traffic/opinions in the Public)

    Hi guys, over the past few months I've been on a tough decision making process of narrowing down some of my choices of my next watch, I think I am getting really close and looks like the PO 8500 XL is the winner. Just need to scrape up a few more pennies
    Which of these two looks better? Which is the best choice for long term? I know it is highly subjective and a personal preference, but if any of you had to make the choice which one would/did YOU get and why? This will be a major purchase for me and I want to make sure I make the right choice.
    BTW this will not be a daily wear watch.
    Thanks,
    Anatoly

    Out of the two, I prefer the one of the left. The orange numerals on black is a nice combo and makes the watch look more sporty and colorful. It'd also great with a black leather or rubber strap with orange stitching.

    I like the PO with the orange numerals. The watch doesn't loose its - somehow - classic diver feel but the dial is a bit more interesting - IMHO.

    Definitely the one with the orange numbers. Looks more sharp, plus it's on my to-get list!

    This is pretty much my exactly my thinking.

    Also, look into the orange-bezel version. So orange...

    Add me for the Orange numbers.

    Plus, Orange is the color you're supposed to be able to see most clearly when diving to the 600m depth limit of the PO, so there's that extra bit of functionality right there.

    +1 for the orange; though I think the silver has more staying power.

    I like the silver numerals. The orange numeral disrupt the slick silver and black color scheme. Out of curiosity, what size are our wrists? The 45mm looks really good on you.
