    My First Watch

    I’m almost ready to buy my first watch and I’ve managed to narrow it down to these 3. What are people’s thoughts and opinions from owning these models etc?

    The Seamaster Professional 300 (first picture) is the most bang for the buck watch. That would be my choice.

    The Aqua Terra is more suited to a sporty casual watch whereas the Planet Ocean is an overkill on the wrist. For day to day wear, from office/desk work to casual days and weekends at the beach, the SMP300 is just right at home.

    Of course, these are my own opinion. Everyone else would say buy what you fancy but I know it is hard when your heart likes all three equally....

    I was in the same boat and started with the SMP 300.

    AT: although a nice watch, the divers got me more interested the longer I waited.

    PO: can‘t handle the thickness right now (6.25 inch wrist). Hoping for a thinner iteration in years to come.

    I would eliminate the PO and focus on the AT and SMP300m. My advice is to look at what you need most from your watch, both are sufficiently waterproof and robust. However, the SMP is a true diver and the AT might be a bit more versatile if you plan on having a one watch that does it all....

    I'm actually not a fan of Omega dive watches, especially the SMP, but the AT is the ultimate sports watch in my opinion. I just bought mine about a month ago and I absolutely love it.

    Can't go wrong with any of them - I would be happy with any of them. I don't have any of them but I wish I did!

    I would also elimate the PO as an "only" watch. My first was, and still is a seamster. Works well with dress shirts, suits, or jeans. I also like the thin profile.

    Out of those 3, the PO. But I prefer the older gen SMP as an 'only' watch. Not as thick as the PO

    Mine with the PO:

    My opinion is either 1 or 2. I do think the bezel adds an extra element to a watch for interests sake but the AT would be better suited for all occasions.
