    Grey is extremely legible. Definitely donít let that stop you.

    I saw the new SMP at the Omega boutique here in NYC a couple of days ago. While the watches are very nice the increase in size and overall bulkiness is a deal killer for me.
    I was there to size the current (previous) SMPc model that I just got, and compared the two.
    The new model sits like a slab of steel on your wrist. It feels substantially bigger. I also don’t like the new flatter bracelet. The new wave dial actually looks nice and I really like the white numerals on the new bezel. It’s a nice watch but instead of making it smaller or at least keeping it the same size, Omega went for the maxi effect. Too bad. I don’t regret getting the previous model at all.

    I agree with you, it's crept up just enough in size that it's no longer wearable for my small wrists which is a real bummer. I hope they can make a midsized version of this in the future.

    They probably will, but it’s not even a matter of wrist size. I have a fairly decent sized wrist, 7.5 or 7.6, but I hate the look of a watch that overwhelms your wrist, that wears you so to speak. It’s a pity because in some aspects I really like the new version.

    Awesome video that shows a little more true to life what this watch looks like. I wish that I could get the watch with both the steel and rubber bracelet but, when I do buy it, I'll just go with steel to start since it's the better value.
