    I have seen promotional videos that show blue/green mix in the blue dial (maybe black too) but the grey appears green throughout.

    Does anyone have pictures or comments on this?
    I have the grey and definitely has the same arrangement: green for minutes and blue for hour and markers

    Not sure if this video has previously been posted to the thread, but here you go anyway. Just more reinforcement of my choice.

    Went to the OB in Sydney, Australia (Bondi Junction), and tried the two models they had on display.
    Black on Black rubber, and Gold/Stainless steel/Blue on bracelet.

    Both are really amazing, it's a shame they didn't have the blue/steel on steel.

    The watch looks amazing IRL. The thickness is excellent (thank you Omega). The size I felt is very good, and the HE valve was not shocking IRL, I didn't notice it.

    Note for people with a small wrist, I have a 6.5" wrist and had to use the last hole for the rubber strap. If your wrist is thiner, the rubber might be too big depending on how lose you like your watch.
    The rubber is very comfortable and soft, much thiner than the PO 2500 one I am used to. I really like it as well, but would get the watch on the bracelet I think. Maybe both is the good choice :)

    That would definitely be one of my next watches, if the wife accepts the business case... hum... need to work on that one still...
    Really beautiful master piece by Omega.. this is going to sell well for sure.

    I noticed someone else mention that the HE valve really doesn't look bad in person, but I have to admit, I'm only looking at photos of the new watch right now and the HE valve looks absolutely hideous. I can't wait to see it in person and hope that I'm proved wrong. Call me a skeptic, but I fail to believe how something that looks that bad in pictures can actually be bearable in person.

    Re: New 2018 SMP 8800's are arriving in the US this week...

    I know that folks here are outraged by the 'peanut butter cup' HE valve shape, but as someone who owns SMP's 2254 and 2231, and 2500/8500 PO's I can say that the taper on the new SMP's HE valve helps reduce its visual impact on the slightly larger case, and is to my eye a significant positive in making this watch balanced.

    Much like the much-discussed laser waves on the new dial, I think it's something that catches the Omega WIS's eye in pics, but kind of disappears on the wrist (maybe less so in the two-tone versions, where the valve crown is gold!).

    I have to say that this thread is making me lust for one of the new SMP's... if I'm honest, the only significant thing stopping me from buying is the inability to decide between blue/black/gray/two-tone versions.

    My choice and couldn’t be happier. Saw it in the flesh and blew me away.
    Not better than the blue/black counterparts just different.

    Go check it out in person. The dial is so beautiful that you don’t even look at the HE valve.
