    The new SMPs have landed in Sydney, Australia.

    Got my first look at the new watches in person today, and as expected they are stunning.

    Photos from the Sydney Omega boutique in Martin Place today:

    I got the grey from OB in Bondi Junction last week.
    They had the black but only on rubber.

    Some of you have mentioned ADs giving discount, any ADs in the UK offering discount that any of you know of?

    Cheers and great watches Gents.

    Hello all,

    Just wanted to inform everyone about the price of the rubber strap & buckle sold separately. I just picked up the blue steel on steel bracelet of this watch and I absolutely love it. The bracelet is incredible! However, I'm not one to stay with one strap/bracelet forever as I find that changing them is half the fun. It can totally change the look and on the rubber this watch has more of a sporty yachmaster look. Anyway, I recently contacted my AD who contacted an Omega representative and he relayed me this:

    New Omega Seamaster Professional 8800:

    032CVZ010127 - Blue Rubber Strap - $232

    025STZ010129 - Stainless Steel Tang Buckle - $45

    I want to get the fitted rubber for this watch because it has good reviews on comfort and style and costs much less than I anticipated (yes I've heard those crazy stories of $400-800 Omega straps). Even though it is objectively still incredibly expensive for what it is, I know my OCD self will pull the trigger on it eventually.

    I want to upload some pics of my blue steel on bracelet but I need to get the pics from my phone, will do soon! Otherwise please feel free to ask me any questions about the watch I've had it for around 2 weeks now :)

    I can tell you first hand that the rubber strap is very comfortable. It's on par with the cost of an Everest strap or Rubber B for a Rolex.

    Very nice. In person, is the blue watch brighter than the old SMP300? Looks like it in the photos.

    Iíve handled both and seen them side by side and I would say maybe VERY little. Nothing that would stand out if you didnít see them side by side. They are almost identical in color. This watch is a chameleon, it can be royal blue, almost a turquoise blue, navy blue and sometimes almost black. Like everyone has said, it is VERY hard to capture this things color and quality in photos. Thereís been times where I see my watch and it looks cool and when I try to take a picture it comes out very different than what my eyes actually see. You really do need to see this in person and in different lighting, not just the ADís lighting and not just from pictures online. It changes color so much. Again these arenít exactly how the color looked in person but hereís some other examples:

    For reference my wrist is about 6.25Ē, so on the smaller size. I will say that it looks like itís really big on my wrist in pictures, but in reality it wears smaller than pictures suggests. Very similar to a Seiko SKX.
