    My sentiments entirely. Get the LM. If for some reason you don't bond with it then you will be easily able to sell and get the 8500. The 8500 will be around for a long long time.

    Re: * Official Liquid Metal Thread *

    Has anyone else noticed that the bottom of the second hand is also coated with superluminova in the same location as it is on top? I was just playing around with mine and was charging up the lume w/a mini-mag light, and as I was doing so I could see that the bottom arrow tip of the hand was reflecting white off the dial, and when I removed the light I could see it glowing, albeit faintly....so I sort of tracked it around the dial with the light, trying to angle it so that it was getting as much reflected light as it could, then went into a dark room, and sure enough, you could see the reflection of the glowing bottom of the arrow tip in the dial, pretty cool!

    Actually if you look up to the post just before this one, you can see the lume coating pretty clearly on solesman's macro shot...

    Re: * Official Liquid Metal Thread *

    I am new to the watch world, very new, but I took the plunge after a few moths of study, purchased a new PO 2201.50 last week from an AD in NJ. He had stocked up when the 8500 was introduced, and I got his last one.

    Pardon my ignorance, but what is the difference between the Liquid Metal and the new PO 8500?

    Regarding LM LE:

    - limited run of 1948
    - 2500c movement rather than 8500
    - comes in 42mm size only
    - case is slightly thinner
    - uses the older bracelet with pins
    - uses the older clasp
    - bezel is glossy black ceramic rather than matte grey
    - markings on bezel are made of liquidmetal
    - bezel edge notches are finer
    - dial is glossy black ceramic
    - zro2 on the dial
    - 'seamaster' font is red rather than orange
    - end of the second hand is red rather than orange
    - caseback is steel with hippocampus rather than display back
    - 12, 3, 6 and 9 'o'clock lume markers are slightly more elongated
    - 6 and 9 applied number fonts are open
    - lume is all blue - on the 8500 it is mostly blue, with a green minute hand and bezel pip
    - the hands + lume markings are shaped slightly differently - overall they look pointier on the lm le and blockier on the 8500
    - broad arrow part of the minute hand is smaller than the hour hand, with 8500 they are the same size
    - crown and he valves are polished, on the 8500 - brushed finish

    See here for a detailed comparison between 2500 and 8500 with photos:
    PO 2500 vs PO 8500 Comparative Review - Rolex Forums - Rolex Watch Forum

    Really like the PO LM LE. In my opinion it combines the best elements from both the 2500 and 8500 models in one package!

I need to make up my mind tonight, Im going to try a 8500 on tomorrow then make my mind up from there

    Thanks, Tomtom

    I was aware of some of the differences, but not so many of the more subtle design changes. I went for the 2500 calibre primarily because of it's longstanding service in Omega watches, and the 8500 in the new PO had a higher case profile - a bit much for my cuffs and sleeves. And the bezel change wasn't a big deal for me, either. Afterall, it is my first plunge, and all I wanted really was a high quality watch that is relable, has a substantial 'look", and does not break the bank. So far, less than two weeks, it is the only watch I wear.

    number 1400
    1 year warranty left.
    Strange, i thought they were at the 800's at the moment.
    so this one was released 2 years ago which seems strange with such a high number.
    if this is true it means that omega indeed released the complete series but the market did somerthing else with it
