    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.

    Exactly my thoughts as well. The new dial on the 2018 model looks very sharp and has so much going for it. But I also love the form factor of the SMPc and actually purchased it after looking at the new one.

    I had a Rolex sub on order. Purchased the SMPc instead and cancelled the sub order. While the sub is a great watch, i like what omega has done with the SMP series. It represents great value for money and their design is more modern looking to me.

    7.5 or 7.6. But do I have a preference for smaller watches. I like the 36mm size. I need to see some skin on either side of the lugs.

    and just like that...Tim got his hands on on Blue Dial, SS with Rose Gold. Even has some bold things to say at the end of the Video which I agree with :)

    I don’t think it’s a terrible looking watch, but saying it’s a “Sub killer” is a joke

    It's a nice Seamaster, but the SubC size is still optimal for most wrists, particularly the thickness of the case. I wouldn't call it a Sub killer either, but featurewise it competes well, and offers good value.

    I just saw it for the first time in the steel. Local dealer just got all of them in (literally yesterday). I didn't find them overly big on my 7" wrist at first. They hug the wrist nicely, and I actually liked the bracelet a lot more than I thought i would. Really seems like a more modern version of the old. With all of that said, once I tried on the old version at the store, and put the new back on again, and this time I really noticed it's "bigness". I am going to have to think about this for a bit before I pull the trigger on purchasing.

    Omega really does the blue dial so well.
