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

    Some pics from this morning. A couple from in my car, one from inside, and a lume shot in the laundry room right after coming in from outside. Still loving the blue!

    Do the lumes are all the same color? All blue or all green?

    The lume is definitely both blue and green as intended. But when it’s fully charged it can appear the same color, and photos don’t represent it well either. After 30 seconds or so you can really see the different colors! In daylight both are white and sometimes an eggshell white in different lighting.

    Still monitoring the accuracy of mine. It seems to be running just a hair slow. I’m hoping this evens out within a week or so as I really don’t want to have to send it in to get regulated within specs.
    I wouldn’t even worry about timing it for the first 2-3 weeks. It’ll take a little while for the break in period and it usually settles in after a few weeks.

    they DO NOT fit the last generation SMPc. tried and the lug holes miss the mark.

    Love all these pictures! So strange, when the new SMPs were announced I thought they were really ugly (struggling with the waves), but over time it's grown on me. Starting to wonder if I need to trade my old one in!

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

    Got mine on Friday:




    First impressions:
    Quality is outstanding, even more so for the price. I’ve had multiple Omega’s, SubC and IWC and I can easily say that this one can compete with the Rolex and easily destroyes earlier Omega’s in engineerings quality.

    Especially the case finishing, dial quality and the bezel finishing and action are absolutely amazing, considering this retails for €4400 and not the €7000 Rolex asks for the SubC

    Wearability and size
    Would have liked it if Omega kept the original sizing of 41mm but the 42mm is still wearing fine, especially because of the comfortable and thick rubber strap. (That has a very nice beveled edged buckle)

    Waves are a great addition and nod to the past and far less noticeable than photos suggest, the ceramic dial all in itself has a quality feel to it with the rich sunburst finish and CRISP finishing and dial text, unbelievable for the price.

    Accuracy is +2 sec a day which is great for me.
    And now even comes with 5 years of warranty.

    Again, this watch delivers so much tech and quality for the price it makes me question if this makes my other watch obsolete...

    That's interesting to hear about the waves. In the photos I have seen they appear too pronounced for my taste. The overall design can't be described as subtle. Great lume!
