    In real life there is a big visual difference though not in the actual liquidmetal itself (apart from the fact that the bezel numbers are flush with the surface of the ceramic). If you've seen the new Seamaster Professional in black, you'll have probably noticed that it's a very rich, glossy watch. Think of the LM LE as looking like a Planet Ocean version of that.

    With a much shinier dial. :)

    with the addition that the numerals of the PO will stick because they are made of liquid metal whereas the numerals on the seamaster professional are painted on and can be rubbed of.

    I'm pretty sure that the dial on the new SMP is the same gloss ceramic as the LM. The same ceramic is used on both bezel and dial of the LM so that they match up in various light conditions (more important on the blue ones, perhaps, which seem to change colour a lot depending on lighting). The LE definitely has a ceramic dial because it's in the lit'.
    I might be wrong but, whatever the SMP dial is made of, it seems every bit as glossy as the LM to me.

    afaik its dial is lacquered.

    edit: it is definitely lacquered, see: http://www.omegawatches.com/news/int...ws-detail/1869

    There are four models available, all of them equipped with the new generation of the Co-Axial caliber 2500, the movement that signaled a revolution in mechanical watchmaking at OMEGA. There are two 41 mm versions of the Seamaster Diver 300m and two with smaller 36.25 mm stainless steel cases. Each size is presented with a choice of a blue or a black ceramic bezel ring that perfectly matches the glossy lacquered dial.

    What are the current LM models carried by Omega in their AD and boutiques? Really curious and will like to see one for myself.

    Fair enough. It's still glossy, though, which was my point.

    Yeah, it's a beautiful watch...honestly haven't A/B'd them so can't speak to their relative glossiness (if there is such a word. :) ).
