    When I visited the Omega boutique, I asked if there will be a women's Seamaster?
    Apparently, not yet.

    Just an FYI for those of us who wants to purchase a his and hers....

    Cheers!

    Very nice. Man, that looks really clean and very transparent. As much I love the hippocampus on my SMP 300, gotta admit seeing the movement in action is very sexy.

    I want one so bad. I think I may have to pick this exact one up so it's not redundant with my current SMPc.

    I love the new end links on these. I know that’s strange but the old smps has those endlinks that would rub into the back of the lugs. Small but much appreciated change. Can’t wait until these hit the grey market

    I know a few women who work at ADs and Boutiques. Each and every one wears a man sized watch, and they look awesome. A beautiful timepiece is the ultimate form of jewelry, and it seems that females can pull the larger watches off really well.

    Well, I can't believe how late I am to this thread. Anyway, sincere CONGRATULATIONS! to any of you able to acquire one of these already. I saw the sample models at the local Boutique a couple months ago, and I was very impressed. Seems like I am the only one who is disappointed with the sapphire case back, and that they got rid of the beautiful Hippocampus. However, after seeing all the great photos and reading the reviews, I think it might just be something that I can get over quite easily. Can't wait to see these in real life!
    Again, Congrats to all of you.
    Cheers,
    Carl

    I understand your point my friend. But I think a 42mm case size is a little to big for the wife. When I purchased a his and hers Bond SMP in 1997 they did have a mid size. The 2018 version I doubt they have mid size models.

    Well, I did pay a visit to the Vancouver Boutique today. And they did have about 8 different variants of this model. I was interested in the black dial/bezel and was not disappointed. One of my favorite parts of the watch, and always has been, is the beautiful stainless steel bracelet, unique to this watch. And they did a good job of updating it. The 42mm actually seems to wear smaller IMO. In any case, I think the perfect size for just about any wrist. The ceramic dial and ceramic bezel gives a beautiful seamless look.

    Only thing that disappoints a bit, is the crown. I never noticed before (I had 2 previous 36.25mm midsize models) that it is a bit difficult - too smooth and too small - to really get a good grip. I do admittedly have rather large fingers, but I can't imagine a diver trying to operate the crown. Anyway, a small thing, but such a beautiful watch!

    Well, I see your point, too. Possibly they will come up with a smaller one though. They seem to be doing that with just about every other model. And I do have to admit, my previous two Seamaster 300M models were both midsize 36.25mm. Back then, I was really partial to smaller watches, even though my wrist size could easily accommodate much larger watches. Funny how our tastes change. I tried on the watch today, and the 42mm seemed to me to fit smaller, more like 41mm or 40mm. Not a complaint, though, just observation. Very well done watch!
