    All 3 variations are beautiful. Tough to pick the one I will get. Time will tell once my boutique gets them in.
    Thanks for the images

    Man I am so jealous of everyone who got theirs on here! UGH...the wait has been so painful. All the ADs telling me the same generic timeline ranging from "September" all the way to December...sheesh. This was going to be a slightly delayed graduation present for me if it actually came in August but looks like it could now be a Christmas present. It'll be my first big watch purchase so I want to wait for a local AD to get it so I can try it on but man part of me wants to just pull the trigger online from one of the mentioned places! Must....resist.......It's been such a long wait it almost seems like a fantasy to ever get one of these!

    I hope the "production issues" that people have said Omega claims doesn't result in any faulty product...what do you guys think?

    I'm honestly wondering if Omega is trying not to flood the market. My AD called me Saturday and said they have 5 in, but 4 of them were gold. I scooped up the only steel one, but I had zero negotiating power. I mentioned that the bezel seemed better than not only the old Seamaster, but even the current Planet Ocean, and the salesman said he agreed (of course, I guess) and mentioned that he was worried that it was going to be hard to move the Planet Oceans going forward. We'll see, but Omega has to realize that this new Seamaster is pretty much a thinner PO with $1600 lobbed off the MSRP. At the very least, if you prefer the PO, don't spend a penny over $4800 for it going forward.

    Sure thing. I usually hate putting my hairy wrists in photos, but I appreciate when others do it since it helps so much to get a sense of the size. I'll even throw in a shot of how you'll mostly be looking at it. :D My wrists are 7.5".

    A pleasant surprise after the rumors of the watch being delayed to Dec. The ceramic dials with the waves looks gorgeous.

    Congrats to everyone who has received theirs. I'm eagerly awaiting the call for mine!

    Very nice sir. What a gorgeous watch! It would be blue for me too.
    Isn't your clasp too much on the 6' side? You don't need to rebalance the links?

    Saw it at my local boutique's window display. Didn't have time to stop it and try it on but my first in-person impressions shows the Reese's cup He to not be that noticeable as it is in pictures, wave dial looks much more modern and sleek, and crown guards to be unnecessarily sharp.

    Naw, the clasp is centered on the bottom of my wrist, just how I like it. For me, that usually means two fewer links on the 6' side.
