    Many of us (including me!) are guilty of judging new watches based on press photos or manufacturer renderings, only to find the finished product much nicer than expected. That is apparently the case here - and now I want one!

    Congratulations to those who received theirs already. Once nice thing about Omega is they we can always least obtain one, instead of waiting for a Rolex.

    For those who are lucky enough to have acquired one, could someone post pics of a size comparison with a Seiko SKX if they have one?

    I wear an SKX daily and this Seamaster will be my first luxury watch. Dimension-wise it seems like it's very close to the SKX, though lug shape and dial-bezel ratio will affect how it wears and looks. Would greatly appreciate a visual comparison if anyone has both and has the time :)

    Is it me or does the black look better than the SMP 300 black? I mean damn, that thing is just sexy and it really pops.

    I had this strap in a drawer that I bought for another watch. Didn't think the light color and vintage look would work at all, but I love it. I don't know if the bracelet is going to get much time, despite how nice it is.

    I'm the complete opposite. I LOVE straps (well, at least the concept of having lots of different ones), but I don't think mine is ever coming off the bracelet. It's just too nice and too comfy for me, particularly with the adjustable clasp.

    That’s because Patek, AP, VC, (maybe IWC) ARE top tier. Or at least higher than Rolex and Omega. Once you get to that level you get to the one-off bespoke pieces by the world renown watchmakers who spend 15 months working on your one piece.

    I digress... anyway, I will likely own a Rolex at some point. Only for the reason that it will be recognized in the right business circles. As for watches I buy because I love them, it’s Omega & IWC for me.

    Ahhh yes IWC. They are very low key in watch groups but I love them too. I WOULD love to get a IWC Portugiser. Such a wonderful and beautiful watch.

    Bloody terrible lighting. Need daylight photos, I suggest.

    I have my eye on the Portuguese 7 day blue dial. Such a STUNNING piece. And I actually like that such a magnificent watch flies under the radar until another WIS sees it. I’m actually thinking I may sell/trade my Breitling Colt & Mark XVIII LPP to fund it...

    That's what I chose too.
